This is my first “month in review” post of the year. I really need to get back to doing these at the end of each month.
Books Read in June and July
Yvain ou le Chevalier au Lion (Yvain, the Knight of the Lion) by Chrétien de Troyes – 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
The Once and Future King by T.H. White – 🙂 🙂 🙂 (I will be doing a review of this book soon)
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo by J.R.R. Tolkien – 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes – 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Locomotive by Brian Floca (Illustration samples are below. This is the most fantastic picture book I think I’ve ever read. If you are a train enthusiast or want to prove to your scoffing friend that children’s literature is art, check out/buy this book.) – 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Reading Plans For August
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (I’m currently half way through it)
The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez
The Secret History by Donna Tartt (for a buddy-read with Masanobu @ All the Pretty Books; we’re beginning August 19)
Praise of Folly by Erasmus
I doubt I’ll get through all of these, but this is what I’m hoping to read in the next month or so.
