June’s book was We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. It was an unusual premise and one which I will not go into because it will be too difficult not to drop spoilers along the way. Let’s just say that I enjoyed reading it but that I also wanted more from Rosemary, the protagonist. I wanted to like her more. Now this might seem like a bit of a theme with me, and I realise that in some stories this just isn’t possible, but in this case I don’t think it would have hurt. That said, I would urge you to read it as you probably won’t read another book like it.
July’s book is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I don’t read much ‘chick fiction’ these days and I know I shouldn’t use that term as it’s a bit derogatory but I haven’t yet found another name for the genre! From all the things I’ve heard about it, I’m sure it will be a guilty pleasure.
