I am so, so late with my round-up post this month, but with a good excuse. At the end of June I was offered a new job – in Edinburgh. Thus the last couple of weeks have been a blur of packing and paperwork as we prepare for a huge move. More on this later, but for now…
- Evie Gaughan: The Mysterious Bakery On Rue De Paris. A nice read that kept me engrossed during some of the long train journeys I had to make it June. A little bit chick-lit, a little bit ghost story, a lot fun.
- The Wicked + The Divine. If I’ve not already raved at you to go and read this comic, please take this as me doing so. I think the intro/synopsis says all you need to know – “Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead.”
- Mary Vensel White: The Qualities of Wood. I was sent a copy of this for review (my review is up on Goodreads). Nice to indulge in a bit of more ‘literary’ fiction. Lots of small-town atmosphere building going on through this mystery story.
- Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise. May brought with it the sad news of Maya Angelou’s death, and definitely made me want to read some of her poetry. The title poem itself is particularly captivating, but nothing beats the version read by Maya herself
