Annabel’s January books read

I thought I should show you the books I read too during January.

Only seven, which isn’t a lot for me, but it has been unseasonably busy this month – and one of those seven was 866 pages!

That was the wonderful 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster. I loved it, but am a long-term Auster fan. However my co-editor at Shiny New Books has reviewed it already – Harriet’s never read Auster and she loved it too – check out her review here.

Of the other six, three were book club reads – Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis for my book group in early Jan, and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents by Julia Alvarez for next week’s meeting. Then I read The Glorious Heresies for our staff book group at school.

These were supplemented by Apple Tree Yard, which I rushed through ahead of the TV series, and two YA novels. The Wall by William Sutcliffe was rather affecting, being set in a fictional town on the West Bank.

And – amazingly, NO CHEATS!

Hope your TBR reading goes well too.

Annabel
