    1. Thank you for visiting back, Katrina 😊 Also great to hear you read seven of these books and you’re a Susanna Kearsley fan! Kearsley is one of my favourite authors – I highly recommend reading The Rose Garden and Marianna. 😃

  1. Reading yours and FictionFan’s lists are very bad for my will power. I’m not at all sure I can squeeze this into July when I know I have posts outstanding from June but I don’t know if I can resist. We shall see! Meanwhile, you have some great books here, Jessica. I want to read Margaret Skea’s book and I very much enjoyed The Toymakers 😊

    1. Thank you, Sandra – I hope you able to read Margaret Skea’s book soon and great to hear you enjoyed The Toymakers, too. I also hope you have a chance to take part in this meme as well – Please come back and share a link to your post if you do take part. Would love to see your choices. 😊

  2. Thank you for joining in again. Always great to see a variety of books and you have spurred me to reread Rebecca over the summer as well.

    1. You’re welcome, but more importantly, thank you for hosting again! 😁 I hope you enjoy re-reading Rebecca as much as I did – It is perfect to enjoy on a hot summer’s day in the garden. 😎

  3. It looks as though you’ve had a good start to the year, with a great mixture of different types of books! I like your choice of categories too. I’ll be putting my own post together soon.

  4. Well done! Some excellent choices showing you’ve had a very varied and enjoyable first half of the year. I had a bash and got nowhere, but you’ve inpired me to try again! I may steal one or two of your categories if you don’t mind… 😀
