Following May’s chemotherapy, I wondered when my concentration and ability to get lost in books would return. It took about a month. June was fast and furious reading hard cover books, e-books and audio, one after the other. It felt like finding myself again or returning home.
By far, my standout from last month was Lessons in Chemistry. I could not put this book down and read it over the weekend. Trigger warning: it’s set in the 60s and there is awful work place sexism and assault. Having said that, the imaginative writing, brilliant character and message were outstanding. Give me a book where the dog is narrated as well all day, every day.
The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett |Meet Me in Monaco | The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle | Flying Solo
Breakfast with Buddha | Kitchens of the Great Midwest: A Novel
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street | The Bodyguard
As I’ve been back in the hospital, had additional chemo and been quite out of it, this post reads a bit like a boomerang. I relied heavily on audio books when I was at my worst but once again, I’m looking forward to reading.
Any recommendations? Send my way! My TBR always needs some love.
