I can't believe it is July already!

26: The Word for World is Forest Ursula K. Le Guin

 This was the book group choice for June - and I am so glad it finally nudged me into reading some Ursula K. Le Guin. I thought this was absolutely brilliant, and still so relevant,(despite it's age which is quite a sad indictment of recent history) with it's themes of colonialism, asymmetric warfare, environmentalism, and racism. 

27: Miss Perigrine's Home for Peculiar Children Ransom Riggs 

It took me a while to get into this, but once I did, I enjoyed it very much. I am very glad I read the print version, as the photographs are so crucial to it. No idea why it took me so long to get round to reading this. 

28: The Silver Locomotive Mystery Edward Marston 

Very good, and with a lovely twist to the mystery. Once again full of despicable rich people - I am sure there must have been some nice rich  people, somewhere ...

29: The Crow Trap Ann Cleeves 

The first in the Vera series. Good mystery, nice introduction to the characters. Didn't get the twist until nearly the end. 

30: The First Casualty Ben Elton 

My choice for discussion for July's book group. A re-read for me, and one I hope that the other's enjoyed, or at least have something decent to say about. I didn't remember much about the plot, so I at least have that experience again.
