August picked up the reading tally and for the most part, all five were highly enjoyable. Kate Morton and Laline Paull are two authors I will be returning to in the future.
Mr Mac and Me written by Esther Freud – 3 stars
The Forgotten Garden written by Kate Morton – 5 stars – a lot of the online reviews I’ve found for this book are quite negative. While some of the flaws they point out are accurate, for me, however, I could overlook all of these because I know Paddington, Maryborough and London. Two of these three I have lived in and the other I have visited. Morton’s descriptions made me homesick quite a few times.
The Bookshop Book written by Jen Campbell – 3 stars
The Bees written by Laline Paull – 5 stars
The Visionist written by Rachel Urquhart – 2 stars
August Average = 3.6 stars
