Jan-March 2013 – Reading Round-up

Here’s a visual round-up of the books I’ve read in the past couple of months.  I’ve been working on some other writing projects lately, letting my attention to reviews lapse.  Click on the images and follow the links to the full reviews, albeit brief in some cases.  An eclectic mix, but there are some real stand-outs in there, most notably Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Notes on a Scandal, but BEST of all, The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint for which a review is still pending.  I like it so much I am still speechless, three months down the track.

  1. My goodness Nadine, you have been busy!  I don’t know anyone else who has read the Penelopiad – now I’m going to have to read it again to remind myself! One of these days I might get around to posting some reviews on goodreads, but don’t hold your breath! xxxx

    • Hey Amanda! So sorry for the massive download!! I was rather hoping no-one would notice! Reviews have been on the backburner lately in favour of just reading (so much more time now without the FB distraction!). I thought the Penelopiad was good, but in a way it suffered from my having just read Madeline Miller’s Song of Achilles which I found much better. I do love the concept though. Oh you should definitely dip into GR more often, I just came across two Aussie titles I’m really keen to read – A Waltz for Matilda by Jackie French and The Light Between Oceans by Stedman, both look great. Did I read somewhere it’s Aussie Book Month? hope all’s well… 😉
