June wasn’t a great month for reading, but then I hadn’t expected it to be. The boyfriend and I had a week off together (in which we seemed to achieve very little), I had an important job interview to prepare for and I’ve generally had to clean and sort the house for future plans. Add to that a fun dose of illness flare-up and we’re only 5.5 books further on with our lives.
I can’t complain too much though, as I was completely blown away by two of those books and I really enjoyed a third. Let’s have a look at what’s been happening at Booking in Heels.
Wilkie Collins: A Life of Sensation by Andrew Lycett
Best Book of June 2017:
My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier
(I’d say that The Moonstone is sliiiiiightly better, but it was a reread so doesn’t count!)
- I don’t even like Dickens. Can’t stand him. The above eleven books just happened to be cheap and pretty, so what can you do?
(not buy them?)
- I already own Jane Eyre. Six times over.
- I already own To Kill a Mockingbird. Twice over.
- I already own Rebecca. Twice over.
