So far this year I’ve read over 200 books but only given 5 stars to about 9. I thought, as this is my last column for the library, that I’d share those titles with you.
I read for enjoyment. Life is too short to waste it on books that leave me wanting an editor’s red pen or make me feel dreadful about man’s inhumanity to man. Be assured if you read the following titles you will enjoy the experience! Of course, lists are purely subjective, so apologies in advance if my tastes do not align with yours.
The Keeper of Lost Things Ruth Hogan
The Little Teashop of Lost and Found Trisha Astley
Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine Gail Honeyman
The Stars are Fire Anita Shreeve
The Art of Purring David Michie
Dark in Death J D Robb
Dear Mrs Bird AJ Pearce
The Single Ladies of the Jacaranda Retirement Village Joanna Nell
Our House Louise Candlish
I’m moving out of the area and shall miss the great array of new books the library gets each month. I’ll have to resort to my Kindle or the SCC library where the wait for the latest releases will be ages. You lucky people can continue using your local volunteer run library. Feel free to become a volunteer or join up as a borrower.
I wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas and New Year celebrated with loved ones.
As ever, happy reading
