What I read in July 2021

Another ten books read in another difficult month mentally. Not all the ones I planned, and with a slight theme if you can spot it…

Girls Who Lie, The C Word, The Great Silence, Drama Queen, But You Don't Look Autistic At All

Girls Who Lie, by Eva Björg Ægisdóttir, translated by Victoria Cribb - 4*

The C Word, edited by SpellBound books - 4*

The Great Silence, by Doug Johnstone - 5*

Drama Queen, by Sara Gibbs - 5*

But You Don’t Look Autistic At All, by Bianca Toeps, translated by Fay MacCorquodale-Smith - 4*

The Curious Rise of Alex Lazarus, The Missing Sister, Odd Girl Out, Rabbit Hole, A Young Lady's Miscellany

The Curious Rise of Alex Lazarus, by Adam Leigh - 4*

The Missing Sister, by Lucinda Riley. Getting to the end of this before finding out her son was going to write the last book was a bit of a ‘WHAAAT?’ moment! 4*

Odd Girl Out, by Laura James - 4*

Rabbit Hole, by Mark Billingham - 4*

A Young Lady’s Miscellany, by Auriel Roe - 4*

Looking ahead…

Invisible Victim, The Killing Tide, Good Samaritans, 1979

Carrying over Mel Sherratt (though I believe the title has changed!) and Will Carver because I didn’t get to them in July. The Killing Tide is my first Lin Anderson, for a blog tour, and Val McDermid is one of my ‘auto-buy’ authors.
