I keep forgetting to pledge so before it slips my mind again, I pledge 5 books

And my first post is a review of Pride and Prejudice over on the Bookshelf http://forum.hol.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=391&p=275290#p275290
For my next three books, Briar Rose by Jana Oliver, Throne of Glass by Sarah Jane Maas and First Test by Tamora Pierce, I posted micro-reviews as part of my broader discussion of types of fantasy literature and their effect
over on between the Pages http://forum.hol.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=392&p=275809#p275809

I'll pledge two books to begin with but might get through another couple. Have a busy summer coming up but am going away for a week so pool time is perfect for reading!

Hopefully I'll read more, but school does start in less than a month...

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer of reading! And for anyone yet to pledge, you still have plenty of time to join us!

Wherever you’re at with your target, I just wanted to remind you that you have about 2 and a half weeks - until August 27th, 11.59 PM Hol-time to be exact - to finish those books and post something about them around the Bookclub!

I also wanted to update you on a slight change to our guidelines. To ensure that people get the most out of any reviews you write for The Bookshelf, we’re asking you to please make your comments a minimum of 80 words long. This does not include the info about the book’s title, author or series

Right, that’s it. You may resume that frenzied page turning! Good luck :D

*drops in again to remind everyone to please update their pledge posts above with links to their reviews, discussions and what not and then vanishes into the mist* (Seriously guys, it's a massive help with keeping track of your amazing progress!) ;)
