My first list

Books I have enjoyed reading so far this year, in no particular order....

The Painted Veil - W. Somerset Maugham
Love Song - Nikki Gemmell
The Lucy Family Alphabet - Judith Lucy
The Abstinence Teacher - Tom Perrotta
A Spot of Bother - Mark Haddon

There must be more - but that will do for now!


  1. Looks like a nice interesting list....I didn't know Mark Haddon had written anything since The Curious the moment I'm reading everything my daughter brings back from Uni as she's studying literature....but some of your titles are so intriguing.....I might have to check them out......

  2. How lovely to be able to share your daughter's books - I wouldn't mind studying literature, just to read the books really, don't know that I could write eloquently about any of them!

    I really enjoyed A Spot of Bother, possible more than The Curious Incident...

    But my fave out of the lot is probably The Lucy Family Alphabet by Australian comedian Judith Lucy - an unexpected laugh out loud gem.
