As August comes to a close, I wanted to give some updates on the projects I am working on:
For my Short Classics Project I read 4 books/plays in August:
The winner I would have to say is The Misanthrope which was clever and surprisingly relevant. And it made me laugh at times! The others were not as entertaining but definitely worth a read.
I have decided I am going to read the Furrowed Middlebrow line by Dean Street Press. This is a line of vintage women’s fiction. I read one of the books in August and that was:
That was a delightful read. I am currently reading:
… so stay tuned for that review. Dean Street Press offers a free kindle book of the week from this line and I hope they keep this up.
My last project is the British Library Crime Classics. This month and in the past I have read:
I enjoyed The Cornish Coast Murder. But I remember I really enjoyed Murder in Piccadilly and so I do recommend that one as well.
I’m enjoying my reading lately. Through my digging, I have discovered some other golden age mysteries and reads that I look forward to trying, so you will see them sampled in between my projects. Dean Street Press has some good series recommendations I had never heard of, such as this one by Vivian Francis. I have found I cannot read these books as quickly as I can some more modern ones as the reading is more…dense (?) I won’t rush or I will lose my joy. Going for quality over quantity.
