Overall a slow month for reading. New term at school though, and littlest starting school, so it was always going to be a struggle to fit it in. Still bought a bazillion books though…
A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing – Eimear McBride. Finally got a copy of this. It’s been hovering near the top of my ‘must be read’ list for a few years, and now I actually have a copy I will get around to it probably sooner! I finally bought it after hearing it be praised on the Bookshambles podcast – source of lots of my book purchases!
The Sun is also a Star – Nicola Yoon. Kindle bargain and I’ve heard good things about it.
Oxfam books visit. Can’t leave without a handful of them! This was my birthday visit too. I got:
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Steven Chbosky
- The Earthsea Quartet – Ursula Le Guin
- Wide Sargasso Sea – Jean Rhys
- Einstein Dreams – Alan Lightman
Now for a trio of physics books, because I needed to buy a prize for a poster competition I ran at work.
- Seven Brief Lessons on Physics – Carlo Rovelli
- Storm in a Teacup – Helen Czerski
- Forces of Nature – Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen.
Ended up giving Storm in a Teacup away because it’s the one I most want to read myself. Of course, I now need to buy it gain so I can read it…
The Secret Pilgrim – John Le Carre. kindle deal and bought due to my extremely long term plan to read all of his books. I know own 5 times more than I have ever read. It’s going great!

See I said it was a slow one!
Tried to get my oldest child (age 7) to have something newer and more exciting to read at bedtime, but he insists on us read the Faraway Tree books again! He just loves them. Saucepan Man and all that.
The Enchanted Wood – Enid Blyton
Folk of The Faraway Tree – Enid Blyton
Also with the small one:
A German picture book that we have to look at all the pictures in. OMG.
