In June I read 4 books. They were:
“Rich and Mad” by William Nicholson.
I read about this book in a blog post and thought it sounded interesting so gave it a go. I think the blog post was suggesting it was a modern equivalent to Judy Blume’s “Forever”, whilst I doubt it will end up with the same rite of passage status I thought it was an excellent read. I think the teenage me would have enjoyed it too.
“The Ice Cream Girls” by Dorothy Koomson.
I have loved every book Dorothy Koomson has written so far. This, her latest, has a slightly different feel to her previous books but I loved it all the same. My only disappointment was in the child characters, the previous books have had me falling in love with the wonderful children in them but in this book the two children took a pretty minor role.
“Love Letters” by Katie Fforde.
I always think of Katie Fforde books as slipper-like and “Love Letters” was no disappointment. A lovely lead character with a love of books, set against a backdrop of both the English and Irish countryside made for a lovely read. I enjoyed this book sat in the garden, idea summer reading.
“Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life” by Bryan Lee O’Malley.
A slight change of pace, I decided it was time I explored the world of Scott Pilgrim. I still haven’t quite managed to make my mind up about what I think about it, but I’ll definitely be reading at least another volume. Maybe then I’ll have more coherent thoughts and comments to make.
