June already, though you’d hardly know it from the temperature. Where did May go? Why have I read so few books? Questions, questions, flooding into the mind of the concerned young person today (© F. Zappa).
Thyme Out, Katie Fforde. A business growing exotic salads, a feisty old woman friend and an ex-husband appearing out of the blue. What will happen to Perdita? Guess! Very enjoyable.
The Unfortunates, Laurie Graham. Already reviewed and my Book of the Month.
The Shop on Blossom Street, Debbie Macomber. Not impressed.
Flora’s Lot, Katie Fforde. See above and post on subject.
Case Histories, Kate Atkinson. Gripping and I now have One Good Turn waiting to be read.
The Princess Diaries Sixsational, Meg Cabot. I love these books for the language but Hello. Meg Cabot has fully stolen from Adrian Mole again.
The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame. This is the one I have to review for Blog a Penguin Classic. Every time you read it it’s a different experience. This is strange, because what one most looks for in a re-read is to repeat the same enjoyable experience over and over.
The Life of a Provincial Lady (E M Delafield), Violet Powell. So of course I had to read
The Diary of a Provincial Lady, E M Delafield yet again.
Still ploughing through Hermione Lee’s biography of Virginia Woolf. About time I cracked this one.
