The Week in Books: June 22 – June 28

So. I think this might have been the week that broke me. I mean I worked the weekend but I had days off during the week, but this list is shorter than usual. I feel like I read quite a lot, but I found it hard to keep my concentration going. And then there was the heat. I mean it wasn’t Nevada, but 30+ degrees is a lot for the UK – where we don’t have air-conditioning and really aren’t used to it. Still there’s a good mix of books on here, and there are more that are nearly finished.
