  18. This linky list is now closed.

ETA: Here's a new Mr Linky as well as a list of the books reviewed so far, as the first one seems to have expired:


  1. I finished the 1930s Mini Challenge - had a great time with it and now I'm just relaxing with everyone else's reviews. I've picked up a few ideas for 1930s books I'd like to read next year.

    Thanks for starting this!

  2. Just found out a while ago that you can enter books that are set in 1930s, not only published in, so I have a couple to submit! Will be back for one more soon :)

  3. Just wanted to say that thought the Mr Linky has expired, feel free to leave me a comment with links until next Sunday, the 25th. I'll do the final wrap-up then, and I'll still include any links left here.

  4. ...and also include you in the giveaway, of course!

  5. Hi Nymeth! I'm a bit late and I see that Mr. Linky is closed so will leave you a link to my review of Jamaica Inn for the challenge.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment - interaction is one of my favourite things about blogging and a huge part of what keeps me going.
