Choosing Death on the Ice for Newfoundland

Welcome, michellereads!

Death on the Ice is one of my father's all-time favourite books!

Thanks starfishian!

Did you like Children of the Day? For some reason when it was released I decided I wasn't interested, even though I loved her Russlander. But I think I've changed my mind. (By the way, your touchstone goes to a different book).

Hi Nickelini,
Thanks, I'll try to fix that touchstone. No, I wasn't thrilled with it. Read it to the end, though. It had it's interesting moments, but it wasn't consistantly appealing, I found. I was reviewing it for a university book club and didn't end up recommending it.

I'm looking forward to finding out what you think of Fall on Your Knees. It's not a quick or a cheerful read, but I loved it.

#8 - I loved, loved, loved The Way the Crow Flies and purchased Fall on Your Knees shortly after finishing it. It keeps getting bumped in favour of book club selections, borrowed books, etc. etc. etc. but it hasn't changed it's position in the real TBR pile - "third". Can't wait to read it and discuss it with you. I don't mind darker books - the more emotional it is, the better I like it. Must be something psychological at play here, I think :)

Changing from Mrs. Mike to Jann Arden's If I Knew, Don't You Think I'd Tell You? for Alberta, because I'm reading it right now anyways, and I need all the help I can get when it comes to getting through any kind of required reading :)

Will you write a review for it when you're done? There are none on LT, you can be the book's first reviewer!

nov 5, 2009, 10:56 pm

Sure, I hope I'll remember to - if not, and you remember, can you remind me?
As you can tell, it's not normally my habit to write reviews.

I'd never done so before joining the 999 Challenge, but I've found that writing a review helps me to remember a book (maybe because I have to think about it) and, being somewhat opinionated, I've found I enjoy inflicting my views on others. I'm sure that other LTers review books for much nicer reasons!

nov 6, 2009, 10:05 am

Nope, that's pretty much it for me.

> 10 & 11 I wrote a short review of Jann Arden's book. Apparently there is more than one main page for the title - looks like a job for a combiner. I'm not sure how to do that.

ETA There are three entries.

I'm such a slowpoke - just finished The Birth House for Nova Scotia and am adding it to my list.
