One thing about hot weather and holidays is there is plenty of time to read. Tracy Chevalier's books have always hit the spot as far as I am concerned. I knew about this one when it was still on the printing blocks...loving trees as I do, this had a double attraction. I ordered At the Edge of the Orchard from the Library. Cost £1.....Sorry no review but if you click on the link, you can read all out it.
My friend and blogger has just posted a very good review of another author new to me: Fredrik Backman. She has written an excellent review, so I have ordered that book from the Library too. I am so proud of the Library Service we have, and having a small house, and limited shelving, and a preference of reading rather than dusting books, I keep the home shelves mainly for reference books.
I read a light read and left it in the hotel library...read some on my Hudl...and also read Mr S's library book:
Again a very interesting read..and I shall be looking out for S D Sykes first book in this series. I have chosen to give a link to a review. Read it if you wish. I prefer to discover the stories in books, as I read along, rather than have a good outline before I start. However, it is rather good to read a review and summary after one has finished a book too. Sometimes it makes one want to go back and reread them!
Joining the reading book club at Kenilworth WI really got me into reading novels again, so I am very grateful to them. I have also found out what their current read is and will be looking out for that one too. It would be nice to find a new reading group near me...but let me catch up with some home improvements....
