Monthly Roundup - May 2015

May has ended with another full-on family few days and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that June will bring me some days of solitude and quiet.

To keep my records up to date a very quick roundup of what I read this month - total books = 11

The Kill by Emile Zola
Vanessa and her Sister by Priya Parmar
The Shore by Sara Taylor
Swimming in the Dark by Paddy Richardson
The Dead Duke, His Secret Wife and the Missing Corpse by Piu Marie Eatwell (NF)
The Sandman by Lars Keplar
Strange Shores by Arnaldur Indridson
The Long Fall by Julia Crouch
Second Life by S.J.Watson 

Looking forward to......

Allie's Victorian Celebration 

I have Dr Thorne by Anthony Trollope half-finished , the next county for the Reading England challenge ready to go and after reading O's glowing review of Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell which was my Classic Club spin winner I'm eager to get on and read it now.

Hope everyone has a great June!



  1. You had a fantastic month for books. A couple of those I'd like to read, like The Shore.
    Happy June reading!

    1. The Shore was a little different than I expected but I enjoyed it a lot. The first chapter really grabs the attention.

  2. Loved Dr Thorne, and Wives and Daughters is an old favorite. Enjoy!

    1. I am loving Dr Thorne and am sure W & D will be as good.
