#ReadWithMe 2020 #19 – The State of the TBR

Good morning one and all! Today I thought I would do a round up, as the book I mostly read this week is not due for a review until next month.

That book was The Old Girls’ Network by Judy Leigh. I’ve got this one for a blog tour, but I think I have several of Judy Leigh’s other books, still unread – I’ll correct that soon though, as this was a lovely book! I’ll expand on that in the review, but I just want to mention here that what struck me most is that the main characters are all in their seventies, but still portrayed as, three-dimensional people with space in their lives for romance. This makes a lovely change from the older characters being shrill old harridans who are well past it. I’ll definitely be recommending, and reading more.

This morning, I’ve started I Left My Tent in San Francisco by Emma Kennedy, a non-fiction book about the time she and a friend travelled across the USA on no money! I’m not far in, but I already like the writing style…

I’m hoping for some reading time today (despite home schooling and the ASDA shop) as it’s my birthday! One of my presents was the DVD of Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears, the feature-length movie starring Kerry Greenwood‘s lady detective, Phryne Fisher – I love the books and TV series, so am really looking forward to watching.

Stay well all…

  2. Happy belated birthday! I’ve read a couple of books with older characters and they make a refreshing change. The Emma Kennedy book sounds good too. I read one of hers, Shoes for Anthony, which I loved. It was based on her father’s childhood and set in WWII.

    I really love the sound of that first one! That is probably a sign that I am getting old but then again I reckon we get more beautiful and interesting with age. And a belated happy birthday to you! #ReadWithMe
