    I finished it with a week to spare and loved it – Emile Zola’s L’Assommoir. Absolutely brilliant book. Just haven’t got around to reviewing yet

    I finished the book (Trumpeter of Krakow) April 3 but haven’t reviewed it yet. I’m just a teensy bit past the deadline! It’s a children’s book so really I have no excuse.

    I finished my book with a few days to spare, but haven’t got the review up yet. I had to read Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was quite enjoyable, but not as good as Treasure Island.

    Yes! I finally finished a spin book! Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys. Have not reviewed it on my blog, but did give a starred review on Goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/851474777
    This book truly gave another side of Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester. Not feeling quite as sympathetic toward him as I did previously.

    Looking forward to the next spin!

    I can’t believe it! After thinking that there was no way that I could make the deadline, I not only made it, but beat it. It makes me feel so much better because I still haven’t read my last spin book. In fact, I also finished Plethora’s spin book too, so that’s two done.

    Here is my review of The Seven Storey Mountain

    I’m so close to finishing! Unfortunately end of term craziness has seriously cut into my reading time so I’m aiming for the weekend instead!

      Oh, I have that book on my shelf – unread as yet. I’ve never read anything by Gaskell, so I’m a bit hesitant…

        Don’t be! Although I’d start with “North and South” first if I were you. I love “Wives and Daughters” but it’s really long and much more of a commitment. Whatever you choose, I hope you like her work – I particularly love all of the characters in her books.

    DNF. Sigh. I meant to, but I *hated* Emma the first time I read it and I was all caught up into loving Trollope and I totally didn’t finish. Correction, I didn’t even start!!!

      Sorry! By Jules Vernes I’ve got Dumas on the mind after watching The Musketeers.
