stats, The pile, week in books

The Week In Books: May 5 – May 11

Only two days at work this week – and it was looking like a really bad week for progress down the to-read pile until I put some effort in over the weekend to improve the situation…


Tales of the Jazz Age by F Scott Fitzgerald

Sure of You by Armistead Maupin

Lavender Lady by Carola Dunn

Every Woman for Herself by Trisha Ashley (review)

The Viceroy’s Daughters by Anne de Courcey


Night of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle

A Delicate Truth by John le Carré

Beautiful for Ever by Helen Rappaport

Still reading:

Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe

Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake

More books
Some of this week’s purchases – one of which never made it to the to-read pile…

On the plus side, I finally finished Tales of the Jazz Age after making a concerted effort not to go and start something new until I’d finished with it.  And the Anne de Courcey was a book that I borrowed from my mum *literally* years ago so I’m really pleased to have read that so I could give it back to her.  On the downside, the physical pile isn’t getting any smaller – as two books this week were from the kindle and that was before the Incident in the charity shops and the fact that the new Trisha Ashley came out – and was in two for £7 at the supermarket… On top of that I may have made an unscheduled stop in The Works in Leamington Spa on Saturday night and bought another one! At least five of the six were books that I already had earmarked to read on my Goodreads list.  And I said last week that I wanted to get the number of books on the go at once down – and I have. By one. I’m grasping at straws aren’t I?!
