  1. I’ve got The Marriage Portrait on the TBR, I think I bought it after your review, and Trespasses and Sea of Tranquility are on my wishlist. (I could get them from the library, but I don’t want a great flood of book reservations to land at the same time.)

  2. I have a couple of these in my reading stack.
    When Horse was published I wasn’t drawn to it. It popped up frequently in favourites lists and then when I was at the bookshop a few days ago, choosing my summer reading, another customer sang its praises! Might need to have another look ๐Ÿ™‚
