I’m reading To Grow on Stony Ground by Steve Mee (unpublished novel)
This is the beta read I mentioned last week. It’s a novella so is quite a quick read but my God it’s a harrowing.
I’m impressed with the writing and the story itself. It’s about a 19-year-old German soldier who is a stretcher-bearer in WW1, told in the first person, it’s his experiences on the battlefield and after working in an asylum. It’s gruesome; the author has pulled no punches here!
I recently finished The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
I really enjoyed this novel, there were some really slow places which did bore me but on the whole I liked it and will watch the movie at the weekend.
A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is Kazuo Ishiguro’s beautiful and haunting evocation of life between the wars in a Great English House.
In the summer of 1956, Stevens, the ageing butler of Darlington Hall, embarks on a leisurely holiday that will take him deep into the English countryside and into his past.
What’s up next? The Foster Child by Jenny Blackhurst
I’m a little bit behind on my ARC reads and this is the next one up. I’ve met Jenny a couple of times now and recently attended an event where she did a reading from this book so looking forward to it.
When child psychologist Imogen Reid takes on the case of 11-year-old Ellie Atkinson, she refuses to listen to warnings that the girl is dangerous.
Ellie was the only survivor of a fire that killed her family. Imogen is convinced she’s just a sad and angry child struggling to cope with her loss.
But Ellie’s foster parents and teachers are starting to fear her. When she gets upset, bad things seem to happen. And as Imogen gets closer to Ellie, she may be putting herself in danger…
