Books

Now that I am retired, I am able to easily read three or four books a month.  Below I am sharing worthwhile titles (in my opinion!).

June 2021
Delightful writing,  delightful characters, delightful story.  Easy, quick read. Very satisfying.


July 2021
Tough read but so worth it.  A hundred pages in, I couldn't put it down.  Meaningful insight into the terror of a migrant's journey.









August 2021
Great mystery.  Very like Agatha Christie.  Starts with a death but you don't know who.  Lots of twists and turns with each character's turn at voice.  The smallest details come together to solve it.  








September 2021
Great fun, couldn't put it down. Flirty, scandalous, vicious and a murder. Makes an important statement about the impact of domestic violence. Rarely does murder end happily.


October 2021
Wolf Hall is the first of a trilogy (the first and second installments both winning the Man Booker Prizes).  Admittedly a dizzying array of characters for 1520s England.  Henry VIII wants to marry Anne Boleyn.  The story is told from the POV of Thomas Cromwell, a man presented in a new light from other literary characterizations of him.  The book is the perfect blend of fact and fiction providing a highly satisfying read.  Looking forward to the next book: Bring Up the Bodies.
