  1. I have had all of them apart from numbers 2, 12 and 13 (which aren’t quite out yet), have no idea about 14 myself. I loved O, the Brave Music and Dangerous Ages, and really enjoyed My Husband Simon, which I’ve just read. Have fun with these!


  2. Wonderful! So pleased you’re doing this, and I look forward to watching your progress. (I’m afraid Bad Girl was on a previous list but won’t be coming out, but will be interested in your thoughts nonetheless!)
