Sunday Salon: June Reading

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. Also visit Mailbox Monday 

These review books and galleys/proofs came in recently:

The Royal Assassin: Victorian Bookshop Mystery #3 by Kate Parker, from Berkley
Chef Maurice and a Spot of Truffle (Chef Maurice Culinary Mysteries #1) by J.A. Lang, a gift from the author
Every Secret Thing by Laura Lippman, from William Morrow
Crooked Heart by LIssa Evans, from Harper
The Small Backs of Children by Lidia Yuknavitch, from Harper
French Concession by Xiao Bai, from Harper
The Flying Circus by Susan Crandall, from Gallery Books

I have read two of them, thoroughly enjoyed them, and will post reviews later:
Chef Maurice and a Spot of Truffle (Chef Maurice Culinary Mysteries #1)
Crooked Heart

It has been raining almost daily, so it's been easy to sit and read. What an unusual summer! I think my garden may have enough rain now, thank you. I wish I could send our rain clouds to California!

What are you reading this week?

I set aside Small Backs but am really enjoying Crooked Hearts so far :D I wonder if you'll feel similarly about them? Have a wonderful week!

Brian Joseph said...

I love piles of books!

It looks like you have some really good ones there. I look forward to your future reviews.

Sometimes I hope for rainy days as it gives me an excuse to read too.

Really enjoyed Crooked Hearts. All heart and humor.

Some weeks are better than others, Brian, for the mailbox. Happy reading week.

Impressive stack of books!

Crooked Hearts looks good...and I loved Every Secret Thing. In fact, I saw it as a movie at On Demand...

Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

You've gotten a very interesting set of books. I think that The Flying Circus looks really appealing. I'm going to have to take a look at the book description for sure.

Greg said...

I'm looking forward to Royal Assassin. As I've enjoyed her previous two books. Hope it's good! We've been getting rain too, off and on. We had some nice days last week, but that went away. :)

I received The Royal Assassin to review, too. I, also, have Chef Maurice which looks great too. Hope you have a great week!

Serena said...

Sounds like you've had some great reading time. It has been too nice to be inside so reading has slowed down for me.

Debbish said...

Keen to hear what you think of Every Secret Thing as I'm generally a Lippman fan!
