Lately:

- 3 Horror books that were not horror at all.
- Lots of ideas, but no mood to write them.
- My first DNF ever.

This is it, Mr.Matthews. This is your chance to make us rage and cry with your characters! To be shocked and awed! If you fail the frustration levels will reach critical point and all hell will break loose upon you!

But hey, no pressure  ::)

erm... Lanko... can I just say, to protect Geoff, that I enjoyed book 1 but really liked much more books 2 and 3?

That seems to be the feedback I get... Book 1 is good, Book 2 is usually everyone's favourite (bit like Empire Strikes Back syndrome) and Book 3 is great conclusion. And that is, I think, the way it is supposed to be and I'm happy with that... I got to be a better writer with each book I completed.

Yep, same here :) Read the first and liked it - but only got sucked in when I read his other series (Silent city). As I LOVED that I went back and read book two and three of the forbidden list and must say they get better with each book.


GR, reading them one can actually watch you grow as a writer!

I'm still in.

And since the 1st of June is only one hour away here is Australia I think I'll begin right now!

I might be in for this. I've had The Stone Road on my wishlist of potential Kindle Lending Library loans for a few months, and I don't have anything else I'm planning to borrow in June. I just need to get my May book out of the way.

In fact, I expect I'll start quite late. I end up seeing more of the conversation that way.

I finally started this last night.

Already there has been an "inferred" that should have been an "implied", but I'm soldiering on.  ;)

Perfectionist  ;)

Yes, I found it quite worth the soldiering on.
For me, part 2 was better than part 1, and part 3 was better than part 2.

Well, it was in direct speech, so you could have claimed it was the character's mistake...

I guess I am pretty much a month late. I started this one over the weekend and I am enjoying it a lot thus far.

I think I'll still leave my comments and read the others' although everyone will probably be busy with July's bookclub read.

Hopefully I finish quick enough to join in on July's as well. They are both books that I have had on my tbr list for quite a while, so this is the perfect excuse to bump them up the list  :)

Glad to have you, @Nino. Time warps are available for $100 via PayPal if you want to catch up while the rest of us sit in limbo. I'll give you my email address. No refunds.  ;)
