|I would love my July reading place to look like this!|
Alas...! But one can always dream.
I read 11 books in July, and I am still reading 2-3 that I started in July. Here they are:
Hemingway, The Paris Years by Michael Reynolds
The Forbidden Queen by Anne O'Brien
The Kingmaker's Daughter by Philippa Gregory
Simon och ekarna (Simon and the Oakes) by Marianne Fredriksson
Men Without Women by Ernest Hemingway
Ensam drottning Sofia Magdalena (Lonley Queen, Sophie Madeleine) by Gerd Ribbing
Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope
A Black-Adapted Eye by Barbara Vine
Paris was Yesterday 1925-1939 by Janet Flanner
Den unge Werthers lidande (The Sorrow of Young Werther) by J.W. von Goethe
Sanctuary by William Faulkner
This morning, 1 August, I found 4 books in my letter box which I ordered from Amazon. They are
|Beloved, Hundred Years of Solitude, |
The Age of Desire and A Moveable Feast
The two top ones are for my book club for our September meeting. The Age of Desire by Jennie Fields and A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway are recommendations from Paris in July bloggers. Looking forward to all of them.
For Austen in August challenge hosted by Lost Generation Reader I will read Emma by Jane Austen. I see that I am on page 357 in the book! Almost in the end. But it was so many years since I started reading it that I have to start all over. Just hope I like Emma better this time, but I have my doubts.
For the rest I will just try to read some more of my TBR shelves. I am quite proud of what I have done so far, but the shelves are still overburdened.
