My top read from May was The Dinner by Herman Koch. I still need to do a little write up on that but I can tell you that this will probably make it to my best books of the year list. I just found it fascinating. The other books I read were Murder on Amsterdam Avenue by Victoria Thompson, The Stranger by Harlan Coben and Evil Games by Angela Marsons.
With respect to my challenges, well, no progress but you never know what this month will bring.
What I can tell you is that this month has brought new books already. I’ve broken my library ban because I got notice that A Dangerous Place by Jacqueline Winspear was ready for pick up and I couldn’t resist. I think I was on my library ban for two months and sadly I didn’t make much of a dent in my bookshelves.
Of course I wasn’t going to go to the library and walk away with one book so I picked up Come to Harm by Catriona McPherson, The Dismantling by Brian DeLeeuw and The Unknown Bridesmaid by Margaret Forster.
Now I’m off to spend some time with Maisie Dobbs. I’ve already read two chapters and I’m a bit shocked. I hadn’t read too many reviews so I did not know what was in store for Maisie in this latest installment.
So tell me what you are looking forward to in June? Any big reading plans this summer?
