As summer continues and we feel the pull of the honest world and yet rising cases of Covid yet again see me seeking the safety of my home, my reading continues to be a source of comfort. It remains an integral part of me and I am looking forward to some fantastic reads as the summer conitues.
I am continue to try balancing my reading simply for pleasure, with book reviewing and have found some absolute gems that have patiently sat on my bookshelf waiting to be read.
What follows are the books that I read in July 2021.
The Book Of Echoes by Rosanna Amaka is a stunning and inspiring read. It is about how discrimination and hopelessness, have their roots deeply in our past, but that love is humanities greatest gift.
The Secret Keeper of Jaipur by Alka Joshi was a really enjoyable story set in India.
I have to say that although I enjoyed The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman, I’m not sure I enjoyed it enough to buy the sequel.
On The Red Hill by Mike Parker is the stunning memoir of a house called Rhiw Goch and two couples whose lives become intwined with its very fabric. Mike and his partner Peredur and those that came before them, Reg and George.
Next came a superb thriller. Girls Who Lie by Eva Bjorg Aegisdottir is chillingly, superb and one heck of a read.
The Black Dress by Deborah Moggach is the darkly funny tale of a women left on her own later in life and the novel idea she comes up with to meet a new man. It really is a great read, especially if you love your humour dark and slightly mad!
Last but not least One August Night by Victoria Hislop. You always know when you pick this authors novels up that you are going to enjoy a fantastic story and this one is no different.
Well that was my reading month for July 2021! I can’t believe how fast time is passing, but I am looking forward to some more fantastic books in August. I hope it is a great reading month for you all too.
