This is number 3 in the series. I read the first two back to back, but now had a big gap before reading this one. I enjoyed hearing how things are going to Elena and Lina. Also all the other characters. You learn a lot about the politics in Italy at that time, which I knew next to nothing! #bookcover #elenaferrante

This was a lovely book. One morning Harold Fry receives a letter from an ex work colleague with some bad news. It starts a pilgrimage to see this person by walking from Devon to Berwick Upon Tweed. On the way he meets lots of people and has time to do lots of self reflection about himself and his life. #bookcovers

I wasn't sure whether to put so-so or pick, but as you see chose so-so. A modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. It was ok but the ending left me a bit flat! I do want to read her other retellings though. Plus this cover is lovely! #bookcovers

This is about Truman Capote and his "swans" well know ladies in society who were very close to Capote. They told him all sorts of secrets and he then wrote about them in a book. I didn't know much about Capote to be honest and certainly nothing about this scandal. It was all quite interesting. I did google about all the women in the book to find out who they were. #books

I have had this book for years and finally picked it up this month. I really thought I would love this book but no. I enjoyed the world of the cirus and discriptions too, but I really didn't connect much with Celia and Marco. Plus the challenge between themselves was a let down for me. Well anyway glad I have read it though! #bookcovers
