December is here, so we’re almost done with 2021. And I can admit that I’m really happy about that. 2021 wasn’t my year and with covid hanging around again like an old friend, I’m eagerly awaiting Spring. November felt like a more difficult month for reading, but I still managed to finish quite some books so this is more like a feeling than a fact.
I started the month with ‘Love in time of cholera’ for the classics club. I found this one easier to read than expected but had some feministic issues with the plot. Next, I read two library loans I was really looking forward to. I enjoyed ‘Where the crawdads sing’, but was disappointed by ‘The doll factory’. In between, I read ‘The butcher bird’ on the train, the next historical mystery in the Somershill manor mystery series about Oswald De Lacy. An entertaining light read.
