The Week in Books: May 23 – May 29

Happy Monday everyone. It’s a three day week here in the UK because we have bank holidays for the Queen’s Jubilee at the end of the week. And we’re not the only country with holidays this week – it’s Memorial day in the US today. Anyway, as far as my week goes, this may be a new record for books that I’ve already written about as well as authors I’ve written about before. Still not making massive inroads into the still reading list – I’m going to blame the Vicky Bliss binge for that as well as the ongoing Phryne re-read. I’ll try and do better this week. If the weather continues to be nice, I might even get the Hammock out for some reading time! I’m down in London for a couple of nights this week – I have theatre tickets – so who knows what the end of month list will look like, and the end of week list, but hey, all books and no play makes Verity a dull girl.

One ebook and that’s it. Very restrained. I’m amazed at me.

Bonus photo: I do love peonies. The plant in the garden only ever produces about two flowers, but luckily, my monthly bouquet of flowers included them this month, and aren’t they beautiful?

An * next to a book title indicates that it came from NetGalley. ** indicates it was an advance copy from a source other than NetGalley
