My June reads:
The Point of Rescue ~ Sophie Hannah: I read this whilst on holiday and enjoyed it overall, although I do think that it dragged in places. She's a very original author.
The Road Home ~ Rose Tremain: Another holiday read and the first of this author's books that I have read. I really enjoyed it, the characters were superb, and I loved the humour.
Dry Bones That Dream ~ Peter Robinson: Inspector Banks is now a holiday read tradition for me - I really like this series.
Scandals of the Aristocracy ~ Andy K Hughes: Non-Fiction. Very accessible and well written - a 'dip in' book that details the horrors of the higher classes through the ages.
Gold ~ Chris Cleave: Review for Amazon Vine. I was very disappointed in this one, although I realise that I'm in the minority - it just didn't work for me.
Ottoline and the Yellow Cat ~ Chris Riddell: Beautifully illustrated children's books. The story of a little girl left home alone to fend for herself, and her adventures.
The Pools ~ Bethan Roberts: A book that has been on TBR for years - I enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to reading more from this author.
Black Heart Blue ~ Louisa Reid: Review for publisher. I was really impressed by this hard-hitting novel, aimed at young adults. An author to watch.
The End of the Alphabet ~ C S Richardson: A quirky, short novel but lacked a little something for me.
Pegasus Falling ~ William E Thomas: Review for the Author. I was really impressed by this story set during war time, the first in a trilogy.
Tender at the Bone ~ Ruth Reichl. Non-Fiction. Memoir of an American food critic - great writing and some lovely foodie bits.
Where There's A Will ~ Michael Kerrigan: Review for Real Readers, non-fiction. An interesting and useful book dealing with death and dying. Written with compassion and humour.
The Girl You Left Behind ~ Jojo Moyes: Review for Amazon Vine. My book of the month - Jojo Moyes just gets better and better, a fabulous read.
