Books of May

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré Redemption Key - S.G. Redling I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith Wild Strawberries - Angela Thirkell Desert Run - Betty Webb

Pictured above and listed below are the books I enjoyed but didn’t review:

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone–A reread, obviously. This time I listened to the audio which made gave me some new perspectives.

Redemption Key–S. G. Redling’s second thriller featuring the wonderfully nerdy Dani Britton, this time in the boondocks of Florida

I Capture the Castle–Crumbling castle, eccentric family, and Cassandra–an optimistic but thoughtful teenager who loves writing, relishes life, and sees herself as a Bronte-Austen girl ripe for adventures–I was utterly charmed.

Wild Strawberries–Lady Emily Leslie is having a summer country house party in Angela Thirkell’s second witty, delightful Barsetshire novel.  Young love, misunderstandings, French monarchists, uninvited guests, lots of fun.
Desert Run–Tough but damaged PI heroine, some local history, a WWII tie-in, Arizona scenery, a Hollywood producer, a Native American partner–what’s not to love? This is Betty Webb’s fourth mystery featuring Lena Jones.
