#bookaday 15th-21st June

I am still maintaining my #bookaday tweets (although I have to confess that they are scheduled in some cases, and so is this post – I am on a hen weekend!)  and I am really enjoying reading everyone elses and also struggling to come up with some answers. For those not on twitter here are the most recent days summed up.

15th – Favourite Fictional Father  I am really struggling with this one and wracking my brains – maybe Arthur Weasley ? I think I would have had some interesting things happen if he was my dad. 

16th – Can’t believe more people have read – Deanna Raybourn – Silent in the Grave. For some reason not so popular but wickedly good reads. Here is my review I have read the following two but then got stuck in getting hold of them. Might need to do a bit more digging around! I just love the cover of this one and the following two, then they were no longer published it seems in the UK and the covers now feature the classic picture of a woman staring out at you.

17th – Future Classic The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Mary Ann Shaffer. A wonderous read which I discovered long before it was famous and in truth I loved the cover. 

18th – Bought on a recommendation Blogging gives you lots of recommendations – in this case I choose Elizabeth Taylor- Mrs Palfrey at The Claremont. Thanks to Verity for this one and also to Helen who has also introduced me to Mary Stewart. 

19th – Still can’t stop talking about Kate Atkinson Life after Life.  A book despite reading over 12 months ago is simply still there in my mind, especially in them what if moments of life. 

20th – Favourite Cover I don’t think this book is as popular as it should be but I am going with Julia Stuart – Balthazar Jones and the Tower of London Zoo.

21st – Summer Read My dream holiday would be A Night on The Orient Express by Veronica Henry. Plus all her covers make me feel summery! I like Murder on The Orient Express too but that is not really a summer read, more a winter one! 

One thought on “#bookaday 15th-21st June

  1. I am completing this on Twitter every day, although sometimes I am a tad late with my posts. It is interesting see what books make people’s lists

I love hearing from you so please leave a reply.
