Drink with the Devil by Jack Higgins 4/5
Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje 5/5
The Stalin Epigram by Robert Littell 5/5+
Thornfield Hall by Emma Tennant 1/5
The Exile by Diana Gabaldon [An Outlander Graphic Novel] 2/5
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte 5/5+ reread
Sister by Rosamund Lupton 5/5
The Return of the Dancing Master by Henning Mankell 5/5

I shudda known better than to think that Thornfield Hall, the child Adele's POV of Jane Eyre. So called sequels to beloved books rarely fare well with me. I didn't care for The Wide Sargasso Sea either.
Well, that isn't entirely fair, I put down WSS 25 or 30 pages in.
