What I’m Reading June 2013

Comments

  1. Happily, for the first time in a long while, I’ve got into my reading. So recently finished Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach, which I was amazed by (he is a wordsmith who gets me every time), and now finishing the last third of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go. It’s compelling and I have had trouble putting it down! I should also include that I have read A Lion in the Night by Pamela Allen about 3 times a day since I picked it up for $2 from an op shop. Little Miss loves it!

  2. Revolutionary Road sounds really interesting. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts once you’ve finished it. I’ve read some Aussie classics for obvious reasons (A Town Like Alice, My Brilliant Career – loved them both). Then a bit of a shift to The Great Gatsby and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Just finished Holes by Louis Sachar which was great (my first YA for a while and so well written). Now reading One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

    Hi Karen. Bradley and Cochrane look great. Yates is a marvelous short story writer and all of his novels are on my reading shelves – sounds like RR is overly hard hitting though. I’m currently reading ‘Sea Hearts’ by Margo Lanagan, the Ticonderoga anthology ‘Dreaming of Djinn’, I’m one story from finishing Richard Yates’ collection ‘Liars in Love’ and I’m also reading the history ‘Levant – Spleandour and Catastrophe in the Mediterranean’ by Philip
    Mansel. All are wonderful reads.
