Hopefully this post will be the first in a regular series. You can tell that this covers 2 months and a holiday as I managed to finish a few more books than usual!
The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen. I loved Franzen’s Freedom but found this hard going.
When God Was a Rabbit, Sarah Winman. Starts as one book and ends in a completely unexpected place. I’d recommend it.
The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath. Plath’s only novel explores mental illness and depression.
Our Tragic Universe, Scarlett Thomas. I love Scarlett Thomas! Philosophy, science, flower remedies, language and sock knitting all crammed into one novel.
Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy. One of the classics that had escaped me.
The Sea, John Banville
Downloaded and ready to go
Yes, I’m reading on a Kindle, and I love it.
The Tiger’s Wife, Tea Obrecht
The Woman in White, Wilkie Collins
