Not read Marklund, but I'll keep an open mind and an eye out for one of her books, despite the size of the existing stacks! - col

Is 500+ pages ever the right number? - http://reactionstoreading.com/2015...
rarely, if ever. Most books of any length could usually do with a good edit. The only people lengthy books seem to suit are those that think that more pages for the same money represents better value, as if quality is the same as quantity. - Rob
i echo Rob's thoughts. I tend to find the best reads are in the 350-420 page range, though sometimes the smaller ones (under 300) are great too - Craig Sisterson
I so often itch to edit good books to a better length. (Tana French is a terrific writer, but drowining in little darlings.) But I loved Trollope and was happy to read ridiculously long Russian novels when younger. - barbara fister

Review: THE MONOGRAM MURDERS, Sophie Hannah
So far nothing I've seen about this has made me question my decision not to bother with it. - Bernadette
I have no plans to read this either. - Margot Kinberg
I was feeling a bit meh about this (never a fan of 'continuation novels') until I saw Sophie Hannah speak about it at Bloody Scotland late last year, then I was a little intrigued. - Craig Sisterson
There seem to be conflicting stories about how it came about. Matthew Pritchard says she approached them with the idea. She says they approached her. Whatever, it will generate a lot of money for them - Kerrie

Review: FOOD OF GHOSTS by Marianne Wheelaghan - http://reactionstoreading.com/2015...
Susan reviewed this for Euro Crime and she had a similar complaint: http://www.eurocrime.co.uk/reviews.... I've made a note of some of the books you mentioned too :). - Karen Meek
Yes I did see Susan review Karen - I went looking after I'd finished to see if I was the only one who'd found the book a bit awkward from that perspective. It was only then that I started thinking about all the books I've read with a similar kind of theme - obviously one I quite like :) - Bernadette

Somehow Friend Feed thinks I posted this 16 hours ago. Which is something of an achievement given I only read the book about 3 hours ago. - Bernadette
Any tips for finding books published in a particular year? - Kerrie
I've got a list of classics that I sort of want to read "one day" so I work through that first to check dates. But Wikipedia has a page for each year in literature eg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... and Good Reads also does a similar thing eg https://www.goodreads.com/book.... You have to weed out the crime/mystery/thrillers though - Bernadette
Thanks Bernadette. I can see how to get started - Kerrie

I think I must also do something about the tbr. - perhaps a challenge could be a reminder to tackle it. - Kerrie
Bev at My Reader's Block has a challenge running: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.co.uk/2014... which I discovered through Margaret at Book's Please - Kerrie

Thank you Kerrie! - Jose Ignacio
These lists are really highlighting that I missed A LOT of reviews last year. So should have no trouble finding good books to read this year. Thanks everyone. - Bernadette
