Salon posting is a little late this week because the Book God and I were away for the weekend with the Jeff Hawke Club. We stayed at West Dean College in Sussex, a fabulous place which focusses on art and conservation and offers lots of courses at all levels.
There may have been a list to the craft shop where money may have changed hands for art supplies. There was certainly a lot of rain and quite a bit of Prosecco.
But you all want to know about the books….
- Victorians Undone – a post will follow (also 51 down, 1 to go to meet my 2018 reading target)
- Night Film
- The Cabin at the End of the World
- The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas – a time travel murder mystery
- Lethal White by Robert Galbraith – the fourth Cormoran Strike novel
- Queen Victoria by Lucy Worsley – HMQV through her diaries
- Follow Me by Angela Clarke – all about the scariness of social media, like we need to be reminded 🙂
- Wychwood: Hallowdene by George Mann – Reporter. Local Witch. Excavation of grave. Won’t end well
- I Always Find You by John Ajvide Lindqvist – Something strange is going on in the building’s basement – and the price of entry is just a little blood.
- The Detective’s Daughter by Lesley Thompson – Detective Darnell died before he closed the case. Can his daughter solve it thirty years later?
- The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler – The groundbreaking first novel in the bestselling Joona Linna thriller series. Perfect for fans of Jo Nesbo. As stated by Amazon
- An Absolutely Remarkable Think by Hank Green – impact of social media; when something astonishing happens how does it affect the people sharing it on the interwebs?
As it was so wet we curtailed our outings at the weekend, but before that we did manage to visit Butser Ancient Farm – this is a fascinating place which is a centre for experimental archaeology, demonstrating daily life in ancient Britain. It has buildings from the late Iron Age in pre-Roman times, as well as a reconstruction of a Roman villa. Here are a couple of photos.
Hope you have a great reading week.
