I am a moody reader. That’s why I usually have a dozen books on-the-go.
This summer has brought a super-satisfying variety of books onto my stacks.
All week, I’ve been chatting about some of the stand-out titles I’ve been reading.
(The links are to the posts earlier this week which focussed on these titles.)
