My July Reading List

Five great books I read – I should say finished – in July 2018. I definitely didn’t bang out War and Peace in one month!

My favourite of the five was War and Peace. Not only a personal reading milestone but truly a masterpiece. I need more Russian lit in my life.

I’m still thinking about and haunted by The Remains of the Day. I loved the complexity and sensuality of The English Patient. And I’d forgotten how terrifying Lord of the Flies is!

The Golden House was the only new release in the mix, a dark family saga of the current times in America, by an award-winning author.
