I can tell by what I've read this month that I have been busy with other things. Sadly. But craft sale season is upon us - I've had two already and three next month, and must... keep... sewing... So I've only read two (and a half) books in the last month. They all, however, have a hefty page count, so I haven't totally gone into withdrawl.
Watership Down by Richard Adams was absolutely delightful. I have had this title on my radar for years because it's been on so many must read lists, but I was shocked when I picked it up at the library - I was expecting a thin child's book, but this was a huge work. And it's about rabbits. Seriously. A completely captivating story, about rabbits, that was a great read. Go put it on hold.
Then I read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. I may not have read this so fast because it just was not gripping. It was wonderfully written, and had lots to ponder in it, but while a lovely book, it was not as entertaining. I guess that's what I look for. It is written as a letter from an aging pastor to his son, and looks at the connection between fathers and sons and roots.
I'm in the second half of another big one; A Traitor to Memory by Elizabeth George. I thought I was all caught up in this series, but was happy to discover that there were actually two I hadn't read yet, and I was looking for a read I knew I would enjoy after Gilead.
So that's all for this month. Now back to my book...
