This time last year I was unoccupied and reading all the books I could get my hands on. This August hasn’t been nearly as productive reading wise, I feel as if I’ve barely picked up a book.
I’ve decided to post this prior to the end of August as frankly I cannot foresee anything literary occurring to me between now and then.
Park Notes by Sarah Pickstone (and more)
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (perhaps I’ll get to the other 50% another time)
- History of the Rain by Niall Williams
- Unthink by Chris Paley
- We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
- Mãn by Kim Thúy
- The Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-So-Great Ones) Saved My Life by Andy Miller
- The Little Friend by Donna Tartt
In other news:
It’s the Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival from 14th – 16th September; Soho Theatre Literary Festival from 24th – 28th September; Blenheim Palace Literary Festival from 25th – 28th September; The Henley Literary Festival from 29th September – 5th October; and The London Literature Festival from 30th September – 13th October. Phew, that’s a lot of literature in a short space of time.
How was your August?
