A lovely light read. I enjoyed this one most out of the three Binchy buddy reads I've done. Thanks @Andrew65 and fellow buddy readers. Look forward to the final discussion. #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead #NightofRainandStars

Andrew65 A very busy week has delayed me posting the final questions, will get onto it. 2mo
CarolynM @Andrew65 No worries. When you're ready🙂 2mo
ljuliel Hi Carolyn , I‘m looking for a notice about any further Binchy buddy reads ? I‘ve tried searching through the posts and think this is the last month‘s book. Are you guys continuing with any others ? @Andrew65 Thanks (edited) 2mo

CarolynM @ljuliel Hi👋 I'm pretty sure there will be more Binchy buddy reads @Andrew65 has been running them for a while. I haven't seen any details for the next one but I haven't been around very much in the last couple of weeks. Over to you Andrew - what do you have planned? 2mo
ljuliel Thanks for the info, Carolyn. I‘m rereading Light a Penny Candle , so that reminded me that there was a buddy read of some of the Binchy books in here. I didn‘t know if you guys planned on going through her entire list , if they‘re in any order, or how you choose which one is next. I‘ll wait for Andrew to check in also. I appreciate your help 🙂 2mo
Andrew65 @CarolynM @ljuliel Yes we have been running #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead for about a year and a half, with a buddy Read each month. We are reading the books in order of publication, usually around 19th of each month but this month‘s will be a bit later due to my personal circumstances. The next book is Whitethorn Woods. Thanks for the post @CarolynM 2mo
ljuliel Thank you @Andrew65 That‘s one of hers I have yet to read. So Whitethorn Woods , we start reading around Oct 19 , or the discussion is then ? I‘ll see if I can get ahold of a copy. 2mo

EadieB @Andrew65 Thanks! A few days of switching between Kate Ellis and Maeve Binchy. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Oh my! Three books! I have The Seven Husbands on audio too but I've only listened to 1/2 hour and it's 12 hrs. long. 3mo

CarolynM Oh goodness! I've got so many books I'm supposed to be reading right now, but you've said this one is your favourite so I do want to read it. I'll try to keep up!🙂 3mo
Tove_Reads Already reading six books at the moment, so what‘s two more buddy reads 😅 I‘m going to a crime novel festival tomorrow, so been busy reading the books they‘ll talk about there. (edited) 3mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Halfway through it and definitely enjoying it. 3mo
Andrew65 @CarolynM Similar to me with books on the go! Hope you enjoy it. 3mo
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads 😂 Have fun. 😊 3mo
Tove_Reads @andrew65 👍🏽 my choir performed tonight and I‘m on the way back home. Will start with this one tomorrow (to be fair tomorrow starts in 15 min). 3mo

Tove_Reads Can‘t believe how fast September is moving forward. Ready to go nonetheless! 3mo
CarolynM Not sure I'm going to have time this month. I'll let you know.🙂 (edited) 3mo
ljuliel This was one of my favorite Binchy books. So good ! 3mo
Andrew65 @CarolynM Ok, congratulations on the Ashes Win. 🏆 Well deserved. 3mo
Andrew65 @ljuliel Thanks for that information 😊 3mo
CarolynM It's nice to have the Ashes, but the series isn't over yet! 3mo
Andrew65 @CarolynM Apart from Steve Smith think there are big issues on both teams for batting! David Warne can‘t seem to buy a run! With a better batting line for yourselves we‘d have been dead in the series a long time ago, but after yesterday still a chance of a draw. With our current team that is unbelievable. Staggered England have not made more changes to batting. Think Root as captain is an issue! (edited) 3mo
CarolynM Agreed about Smith. I haven't been impressed with our selection decisions either. I don't know how either of our openers kept their places for this test, and some of the bowling choices raise questions too. At least it's been more interesting than a walk over for either team would have been🙂 3mo
Andrew65 @CarolynM For me unbelievable that they dropped Khawaja instead of Travis Head in the Last Match. He wasn‘t firing on all cylinders but was often close to breaking through. I‘d have replaced one of the openers with Khawaja, he seemed to be doing well as an opener during the suspensions. He always appears more dangerous than the others. 3mo
Andrew65 @CarolynM Amazed that Starc hasn‘t played in every game. 3mo
