The Week in Books: August 1 – August 7

Two nights away from home, three theatre trips and an evening at the Commonwealth Games. Truly it is a miracle I read anything this week! But I did, go me. This week is looking equally frantic, so goodness knows what next week’s list will look like too.

Bonus photo: theatre trio three – Glass Menagerie, which I studied at school but had never seen.

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

      1. I had the blue piccolo editions when I first read them and I had real trouble getting hold of the ones after Ella. I’ve got the lot now and agree the early ones are the best and the very tail end of the series are not as good, although Nigel getting jilted is always good!
