Fielding, Browning, Sedaris & Montgomery (or reading-whilst-waiting; TBR & AnneReadAlong2017 – ALL in the one post – (*self-congratulatory snoopy dance*)…)

It looked modern, bright, full of potential…But having learned from bitter experience, and previous forays in to this type of thing, I kept my expectations low. So, say, anything above a blank piece of paper was going to be a good thing.
