So far my summer reading list has consisted primarily of books I have stashed in the trailer over the winter months for one reason or another. A couple of these are ones I have picked up at the local library because I saw a favourite author's name - Kathy Reichs and Stephen King.
Lovers of forsensic whodunnits will not be disappointed in the latest of Kathy Reich's books. A good read.
H. Mel Malton and the Polly Duncan mysteries are a new one on me but I have to say I did enjoy this. I think I'll be looking for more in the series. I love a good mystery!
The Condition in the title refers to Turner's Syndrome, which stops a child's growth just short of puberty. This is a good read with lots of family dynamics going on.
Owen Sheers is a Welsh poet and author and this book of his was a very enjoyable read, as much for his beautiful descriptive passages and his mastery of words as the subject matter and story. The premise of the story is that Operation Overlord failed and the Germans conquered Great Britain. It deals with a tiny village in Wales where the wives wake up one morning to find their husbands have vanished during the night - presumably off to join the Resistance. The women are left to deal with keeping the farms going and dealing with the German soldiers who appear on the scene. Beautifully written!
So, what are you reading? I would love to get some recommendations of good books to add to my stack for the summer!
