Look, just because they’re not proper grown up books doesn’t mean I’m not meeting my quota. Also, I am reading a proper grown up book too which I will finish because it’s the fifth in the series of four medieval murder mysteries and I love them. My problem is that it’s over 700 (proper grown up size) pages long, so it will take me a little while to finish.
I laughed out loud several times during this book, had to look up “Sapphic”, am now very curious about whether the origin of “cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey” is really true and I might look up keel-hauling. I might not. It sounds nasty.
Edit: 9/10 – as below.
