But just because you want to be outside doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a book with you. Books I have read lately and really enjoyed include:
The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce – this is the other side of the story of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and I thought it was really well done.
A second reading of Lily King’s Euphoria revealed lots of subtlety I had missed first time. Enjoyed hearing her talk at the Book Festival last week.
And a couple of mystery authors that were new to me that I really enjoyed – different kinds of mysteries.
C. C. Benison has a traditional series (known as the Father Christmas series) featuring a Church of England priest named Tom Christmas. Titles are also a bit misleading following the 12 days of Christmas song. But they aren’t about the Christmas holiday – although if he ever gets to a Partridge in a Pear Tree that one might be. Titles are from the song – Twelve Drummers Drumming, etc (he has three so far in the sequence).
The other mystery author is Harry Dolan – also with three books in his series so far – the first is Bad Things Happen and you should read them in order – extra good news is that they are available in the Library.
SO – ball to you. What are you reading?
