My A – Z list of book reviews has become so big and unwieldy that I’m in the process of splitting it into two lists. I have a whopping 125 reviews on my Goodreads page: Marje’s Goodreads Page
So with this in mind I’m splitting it alphabetically into two. You can find the A – M list here: Kyrosmagica A – M Book Reviews
It doesn’t quite divide perfectly so I thought what better place to begin than to start with an N… that’s the beginning of my eldest daughters name – Natasha – and she’s a bookworm too.

Happy Reading….I sense this list will grow and grow and grow, a bit like Jack’s beanstalk..
Bye for now,
Such a great job, Marje! Thank you for the links.
Wow! 98 reviews! Well done and thank you for shareing these! 😀
Thank you Annika. It’s been a labour of love. One that I hope to continue. 🙂
Hope you do…I know it takes a lot of work to write such thought out and considered reviews. You’re one busy lady!😀
Phew… Yes I am!!
What an amazingly fulsome feast of a post!!!! That must have taken some putting together! And just right for the subject of EXTRA!!!! Thank you for joining our Photo Challenge. I love putting it together with Ron’s Haiku Prompts. We have a new list coming up with all 52 subjects set out for the coming year, we’d love to have you join us as and when the mood or muse fits in. Those cakes look SO delicious, they are making me hungry! xx
Thank you! I really enjoyed writing it. I would love to join in when the mood takes me. Yes the cake was very tempting, Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge and the 52 Week Photography Challenge I had to wrap it in foil and hide it before I’d give into craving and eat it!
Ha!Ha! I’m not surprised – a treasure in store. 😉
Thanks again for the review of Hong Kong Treasure, Marje! And thanks for leads on other books to read.
My pleasure Diane. 🙂
