In July I only got through 4 books, a poor effort after June’s 11, but I plead career-defining accountancy exams and a revolving door due to the sheer number of visitors!
No reviews have gone up yet because I have been a useless blogger for the past month or so (again, see exams), but they will be:
A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka
The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
William Walker’s First Year of Marriage: A Horror Story by Matt Rudd
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
I’m in and out of a few books at the moment – as I mentioned on Sunday/yesterday, I’m listening to Stef Penney’s The Tenderness of Wolves, and have started A Visit from the Goon Squad (by Jennifer Egan, yes I know you all know), and of course Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer is still loitering.
Coming up, I’ve got (starred ones were on this list a month ago!):
*Susan Hill’s The Various Haunts of Men – an Angelmooch which I need to get on its way sooner rather than later.
*Justin Cronin’s The Passage, won in paperback form from Orion via Material Witness
*Helen Garner’s The Spare Room, borrowed from my father
plus a whole mountain of reading for my holiday, which I will be telling you about tomorrow!
