Anyway... the books I read in August. An average month for me due, naturally, to being preoccupied with my daughter and grandson, but also having our grand-daughter to stay and harvesting from the garden. The harvesting has slowed down a bit (though I'm still making jam and cooking tomatoes!) as autumn is setting in here and it's very much cooler than it was a couple of weeks back. So, here're my August reads:
52. Miracle at Speedy Motors - Alexander McCall Smith
53. A Wild Life - Dick Pitman
54. Our Spoons Came from Woolworths - Barbara Comyns
55. Howards End is on the Landing - Susan Hill
56. The House at Sea's End - Elly Griffiths
57. Queste - Angie Sage
Every one of them was a good read. Hard to pick a favourite but it would probably have to be The House at Sea's End, Elly Griffiths' latest Ruth Galloway novel. It was just brilliant. Such a wonderful sense of place... the Norfolk coast... and having been there I know the author has it spot on. Fast pacey plot with a lot of development with Ruth and her personal life. Great stuff.
At the moment I'm almost finished with Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs, my first read for RIP VI. Loving it. And I'm also slowly working my way through Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope. When Bone Crossed is finished I'll probably read something else for RIP... the trouble is I'm spoilt for choice (see previous post) and I even picked up two library books for the challenge yesterday!! But in my defense, the weather here is perfect for curling up with a good book as it's pouring with rain and really rather autumnal. Happy Reading.
