I’ve had a very busy summer, spending time with friends and family. I’ve managed to keep up the reading, but haven’t been able to keep this blog up to date. Hopefully I’ll be able to do that now things are getting back to normal.
Over the summer I read two outstanding books: Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts and A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Both go on to my list of all-time favourites and I hope that you love them as much as I did.

Plans for September
I’m a bit behind with reviews. I hope to catch up in the next few weeks, but here are a few words to give you an idea of my thoughts on the books I’ve finished recently:
I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh Gripping, but flawed
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara A masterpiece
Educating Ruby by Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas Insightful
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand Lacking emotion
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson Too long
The Seed Collectors by Scarlett Thomas Too fragmentented
Cafe Europa by Slavenka Drakulic Fascinating, but dated
I haven’t thought about what I’m going to read next as I’m too busy unpacking! I need to have a good look at all the books I have here and try to prioritise them. I’ll update my sidebar as I work through the outstanding reviews.
I hope you all had a great summer and I look forward to catching up with you soon.
