I´m finally getting around to posting this, my life´s crazy right now. I got accepted for my master´s degree in American studies, so there´s all kinds of paperwork to fill out, find a new apartment and move, while also finishing my bachelor´s thesis till the end of September. Anyway, here´s the list:
Much Obliged, Jeeves (P.G. Wodehouse)
Winter in June (Kathryn Miller Haines)
The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club (Dorothy Sayers)
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Shaffer and Barrows)
Easy to Kill (Agatha Christie)
Much Obliged, Jeeves was a re-read and as delightful as all the Bertie and Jeeves books. These are my favorite Sunday reads when I just want to relax.
Winter in June is the third Rosie Winter novel. I loved the first one, the second and this third book are still fun but sadly not as amazing as The War against Miss Winter. In Winter in June, Rosie and her friend Jayne go on a USO tour but of course people are still being murdered for personal reasons, even in a war. While still interesting, I missed the theatre focus of the first and even second novel.
I tried reading another Sayers crime, The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, but I cannot seem to get into her mystery plots.I adore her Peter Wimsey and her writing style is great, but the mystery just doesn´t interest me. So I went bck to Agatha Christie, she is the queen of crime after all and for good reason. Easy to Kill was nice and, dare I say it, comfy. I´ve always found her novels should be read while taking tea!
Finally, I managed to get my hands on the library copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It´s a nice book, nothing very moving or groundbreaking, but I still enjoyed it, especially the letter style and the quirky characters.
The only book I really bought in August was The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I guess I´m making progress in that department.
