Reading Update

With so many books to chose from last week, no “what I’m reading” post from me this week as such but a bit of an update as to how far through the pile I made it – which was not as much as I’d hoped but better than I seem to have done for a while.


I started with Lives of Girls and Women by Alice Munro, which I really enjoyed, and am almost through Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse.  Reviews will hopefully follow later this week. Next up is Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey:


Maud, an aging grandmother, is slowly losing her memory—and her grip on everyday life. Yet she refuses to forget her best friend Elizabeth, whom she is convinced is missing and in terrible danger.  But no one will listen to Maud—not her frustrated daughter, Helen, not her caretakers, not the police, and especially not Elizabeth’s mercurial son, Peter. Armed with handwritten notes she leaves for herself and an overwhelming feeling that Elizabeth needs her help, Maud resolves to discover the truth and save her beloved friend.

I’ve heard some good things about this book, including a review today by Ali at Heaven Ali which made me want to read it more.  Fingers crossed it’s a good one.

And that’s it for now.  What about you – reading anything good?


  1. I’ve read good things about Elizabeth is Missing as well and it’s been hanging around the edges of my TBR. I look forward to your review!
