School and grades are now completely done which means, for me, that I can start the Summer of Liz. I don’t have anything required (outside the normal responsibilities) so the next three months are mine, all mine. 🙂 (I’m very lucky, I know.)
So – how to wisely spend this time? HA! I’m going to read and then read some more. I’m going to go through my wardrobe to see which outfits I can create/combine (just for fun) and I’m going to go and see my twin sis in CA for a few days.
So, speaking of reading (as we were), what titles have I read since the end of school? The above image tells the story:
- Chasing the Monsoon – Alexander Frater (NF). Reread and ok. Probably doesn’t need to live on my shelves any more though. :-} (Off the current TBR shelf.)
- Soul Clap Hands and Sing – Paule Marshall (F). I’ve read and enjoyed other Marshall work. This was a collection of short stories. Meh. Library.
- Majesty – Robert Lacey (NF/bio). I love the majority of Lacey’s work (good sense of humor) and and enjoying the older bio of the monarch. Nothing too mind-shattering but enjoyable all the same. (Off the current TBR shelf.)
- Rebecca – Daphne du Maurier (F). Loving this classic. (Off the current TBR shelf.)
- 100 Great Artists: A Visual Journey from Fra Angelico to Andy Warhol – Charlotte Gerlings (NF/history/art). I’ve really been interested in getting some more culture so got this out of the library. A quick but wide-ranging tour of some of the artworks of the world (mostly [all?] Western hemisphere).
- The Pale Horse – Agatha Christie (F). A murder mystery all wrapped by the end of your cup of tea. I do like a Christie every now and then. Library.
Yay for summer break! Your plans sound great and it looks like the reading part of it is off to a great start!
Thanks, Stefanie! I wish I could share my time with others! 😉
Rebecca is forever one of my favorites!
I’ve just finished my read of it – wow! It’s brilliant! No wonder you love it. It’s soooo good. 🙂
Excellent work already and how lovely to have the summer. Since I managed to stop working at weekends, I’ve had lots of weekends full of reading, and am looking forward to some of that being in the garden.
Was your read of Rebecca your first? I only first read it last year at the age of 48 and have gone on to read a few more of hers!
This was a reread of Rebecca but TBH, I don’t really remember that much so it was like an all-new experience for me. Thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. 😁
