Books a plenty

Thanks all for your many fab suggestions last night for great summer reads. Apologies for talking with mouth full of Ashleigh’s glorious scones and muffins. Here’s the list – let me know what I have missed:

Straight from the Jacket: Malcolm Langley

The Believers: Zoe Heller

To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee

The Russian Debutante’s Handbook: Gary Shteyngart

Lights Out in Wonderland: DBC Pierre

The Blackwater Lightship: Colm Toibin

1Q84: Haruki Murakawi

What I Did: Christopher Wakling

The Third Policeman: Flann O’Brien

And The Land Lay Still: James Robertson

Love Medecine: Louise Erdrich

Poems and Prose of Paul Celan

I think there may have been a few more but was on a sugar / caffeine high by then. It was such an enjoyable evening, and I’m certainly going to be reading some of these this summer. Will have a think and get the autumn choices up there as soon as I can. Thanks to you all for another fantastic year of reading and talking!
