Despite other things going on this month (the garden, a holiday, grandkids) I also managed to read 7 books so that's not at all bad really. Of course that's helped by the current heatwave. I hate being outside when it's hot so at the moment I'm to be found indoors in the afternoons, windows and doors open, reading.
These are my 7 books for June:
28. The Enchanted April - Elizabeth Von Arnim
29. Travellers in the Third Reich - Julia Boyd
30. Dog Will Have His Day - Fred Vargas
31. The Dark Vineyard Martin Walker
32. Between the Woods and the Water - Patrick Leigh Fermor.
33. Maigret and the Flemish Shop - Georges Simenon
34. A Wild Herb Soup - Emilie Carles.
It's so nice to have a reading month like this. Lots of really good books with different settings which have taken me all over Europe... Italy, France, Germany, Hungary and Romania, that's not bad!
It's very hard to pick a favourite. The French crime yarns were all excellent, The Enchanted April is a delightful book, and I loved reading about Emilie Carles's life in a remote region of France. But really the book I found the most interesting and 'unputdownable' was Travellers in the Third Reich by Julia Boyd:
And this is where I spent a few days earlier in the month: Arundel in West Sussex. One of the prettiest counties I've been in... rolling hills and pretty villages galore. We had a super time.
