Win books, win many books! Good luck!
I read 3 books in the last week
An Equal Music by Vikram Seth. A re-read for me. It’s the book of the month in my online book group, boekgrrls. A good, quiet read. A bit slow, though. 4 stars
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I read this for the Indie Lit Awards. I’ll let you know after the winner is announced what I thought of this book, and the other books on the shortlist.
Blameless by Gail Carriger. The third in the Steampunk series. A fun read. 4 stars.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan. By the writer of When She Woke, a very good story about an American family in the 1940s on an isolated farm.
De Kok [The Cook] by Martin Suter. A Sri-Lankan refugee who works as a kitchen hand in a posh Swiss restaurant is a better cook than the cooks there. That can’t go well! Fun read.
Agorafabulous by Sara Benincasa. Memoir about a woman who suffered from agoraphobia.4/5 stars
The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen. A combination of a historical and modern story with a mystery taking place in 1830. 4/5 stars
