July disappeared faster than a short February holiday in Bermuda. Hence, I read very little, but travelled much.
All of my reading this month was mandatory. It was either for a book club meeting, or something I owed to someone on BookObsessed.
An Acceptable Timeby Madeline L’Engle The fifth book in the Wrinkle In Time series. Polly, the grandchild of the infamous time traveling couple, comes to visit for the summer and gets wrapped up in a time warp that leads to Celtic times. It was cute, and better than the 4th book, but nowhere near as good as the original three.
Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith
Probably the best book I read this month. A detective during Stalinist Russian times uncovers a serial killer who is using the notion that the only violence that exists is controlled by the government to his advantage. When Leo decides to investigate, he finds himself targeted for crimes against the state.
A Thousand Splendid Sunsby Khaled Hosseini
I read this for the Seoul Women’s Bookclub, and I’m glad I did.
The Lightning Thief The first in a series of books where a young boy discovers he is the son of Olympian God. Fantastic, made me want to run out and find the next ones, alas, they don’t seem to be here yet.
*Ruby looks woefully at this list.* I must have read more than that?
