The Confession by Jessie Burton
I really loved The Miniaturist and I enjoyed The Muse so I was looking forward to this. It’s not really what I was expecting and I’m not loving it as much as her previous books, but I’m liking it more as I go on so we’ll see…
This is one of those books that is regularly on reading lists and often picked up by children abd parents in work, so I’ve thought for ages I should read it despite not being desperate to do so. I’m not really enjoying it much but it’s early days…
Holes by Louis Sachar, audiobook read by Kerry Beyer
What have you just finished reading?
The Lost Soul Atlas by Zana Fraillon
I LOVED this. A favourite for this year for sure. You can read my review here.
The Corset by Laura Purcell
I was a big fan of Laura Purcell’s first book, The Silent Companions, and I really enjoyed this one too. Ive ordered Bone China by the same author and am excited for her new book, The Shape of Darkness, out next year too.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle, audiobook read by Simon Prebble
Although this is lost definitely of its time, if you read it bearing that in mind, it’s very enjoyable. Holmes is an excellent character and I really liked seeing how he figured out all the cases.
A Kind of Spark by Elle McNicoll
Review to follow tomorrow, but for now let’s say I think this is a much-needed, well-written book that will be deservedly popular but I didn’t love it on a personal level.
My Name is River by Emma Rea
I really enjoyed this. Fab setting, fab characters and fab themes. Full review to follow.
What will you read next?
On audio, I’d like to listen to A Monster Calls or the garden double I mentioned last week (The Secret Garden and Tom’s Midnight Garden) but haven’t dived into yet!
