I read another good book this year. It's called SOMETIMES IT HAPPENS by Pauline Barclay. I loved it! :) It was just like taking a vacation but without having to pay for it.

Suzy Turner said...

I'm honoured to have my book on your list, Pauline!!
And I might add that I have read some FABULOUS books by indie authors this year, one of which is the wonderful Sometimes It Happens by the equally wonderful Pauline Barclay!! Its one of those books that just makes you smile. A real feel good book.

Hey, thanks for mentioning my book, Pauline! Sometimes it Happens is next on my TBR pile. Loved Endless Night and I'll have to check out the others you mentioned. I need to find more hours in the day or learn to read faster!

Hi Pauline, as a reviewer I've got some great books on my To Be Read list for the summer. Out of the ones you've mentioned I've read Bagpipes & Bullshot and also Discovery at Rosehill. Both very different books to each other but both absolutely brilliant. Loved them both. Enjoy reading them x

Pauline Barclay said...

Hi Shirley, with you on those two, just great!

Hello Maureen, now I'm blushing, but thank you! x

Hi Suzy, you too have made me blush! x

Hello Marcelle, great to see you here and I hope you will enjoy my very English book :)

Hi Kim, I've read all the books, all very different, paranornal, murder, thriller, gangs and vampires and I enjoyed every single one of them. Each author deserves great success.

Some good books here. Right now I'm in the middle of a particularly good read, Sometimes it Happens by Ms Barlcay! But I'll bear those others in mind.

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Crystal Jigsaw, I've read your book and loved it. I've added a review on Amazon and Goodreads. The other books, like yours are great reads too. x

Hello Ros...laugh!x

Melanie said...

Some very interesting reading there. Thanks for sharing. If I've not already put them on my TBR list, I soon will be. Oh yeah, and there are some books by someone named Pauline Barclay that I've added, too. Wondered if you knew her...

Jemi Fraser said...

I've been reading a lot of debuts too - these all look terrific!

Elliot Grace said...

...recently snagged "Raven" for my Kindle shelf and will be starting it soon.

Great idea by supporting a fresh crew of storytellers, getting their names out there! Good for you ;)

Hello Melanie, I've no idea who you are talking about...blush! Hope you enjoy the books! :)

Hi Jemi, I've read all of them, all different but great reads.

Hello Elliot, hope you enjoy Suzy's debut novel. Thanks too for stopping by.

Hi Pat, I read all of them on Kindle. Have fun.

I have Bagpipes & Bullshot on my Kindle and have a note to buy Discovery at Rosehill, but I'll have to look up these others now for my wish list.
