A very enjoyable meeting was made all the more special by Sarah's extra scrumptious lemon bundt cake: I can only hope that a recipe is forthcoming . . .
The Woman in Black was universally liked, although it sounds like the recent film will be a grave disappointment to those of us who have read the book: why do some directors have to remove the subtlety that make some books successful? The Magicians received more mixed reviews, mainly because the main characters were not very sympathetic although the second book in the series is supposed to be far better.
This month we will be reading Soulless by Gail Carriger (I have decided to hold back my review until after the group meeting) and Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich. The selections for May's meeting are The French Gardener by Santa Montefiore and the first Sookie Stackhouse book from Charlaine Harris: Dead Until Dark. This book has been a runner-up in the book votes so many times that I'm pleased that it has finally made it . . . plus, any time spent with Eric Northman is time well spent . . . mmmmmm . . . Eric . . . sorry, drifted off there . . . :D
