Books I Read in March 2016
I read a lot. Like a lot.
- •Still Alice by Lisa GenovaSome parts I found pretty depressing. Dementia, especially early dementia is something that seems scary when you are relatively healthy. Not as soul breaking sad as I thought it would be (which is good!)
- •Christmas at Claridge's- Karen SwanFluffy light book to make up for the serious book from earlier. Only my second book by this author. I found the main character to be hard to like for most of the book. I do want to visit Portobello Road in London and the coast of Italy now.
- •The Silent Girls- Eric RickstadI had added this to my to be read list because it was a suspense book. It was. But it ends as a to be continued (I think) which was frustrating.
- •Beastly Things- Donna LeonI read this because it was supposed to feature a police duo like my beloved Kincaid and James. It wasn't like that at all. And I couldn't eat meat for a few weeks afterwards. You will see.
- •Dumplin'- Julie MurphyVery sweet YA book that could totally pass as an non ya book.
- •Moonlight Over Paris- Jennifer RobsonThird book in this series/ trilogy? My favourite one. Deals with the aftermath of WW1 and life in Paris in the 1920's.
- •The Forgotten Room- Karen WhiteI am on a historical fiction kick. Enjoyed this one and the fact that it has 3 authors is cool and not weird (style wise).
- •A Monstrous Regiment of Women (Mary Russell #2) - Laurie R KingMy second attempt at this series. Features an older Sherlock Holmes and his apprentice soon to be wife (not a spoiler as they are married in all the other books).
