Novels for summer reading

Let’s be honest – I don’t blog anymore (and anyway my students tell me blogging is ‘passe’), but this year I’ll be putting up notes about interesting books or articles I’ve read.

Right now, I’m reading in preparation for chairing some sessions at the Perth Writers Festival in February – and loving it!

I expected to enjoy Burial Rites by Hannah Kent and I did. It is so well written; I found it enthralling. Jo Baker’s Longbourn is another a terrific historical novel, based around the servants in Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Again, wonderfully written with stunning prose and a great story.

Next off the pile – some non-fiction.

Happy new year!
