  1. Great list!! I added Strange Practice to my TBR. Maybe I should add Mistborn too… Loved The Rithmatist by the same author but never explored further.

  2. I’ve been unsure about reading Bird Cottage for a while, but since it made it to your Favourites list, I gave it a go. I hadn’t realised it was fiction and I hadn’t realised that it referred to places so close to me.Sometimes I feel quite sad looking at the way the world was and what we have done to it, so the popularity of Bird Cottage is encouraging. It’s an important story to be told.

    1. I’m glad that you tried it! I really appreciate you coming back here to let me know about that. When I write these posts, especially those recommending books, I sometimes wonder if anyone would enjoy a book that I loved.
