It only seems appropriate that after reviewing the first book A Study in Charlotte on Monday, that my next TBR pick would be the second book The Last of August. Sometimes I’m a bit slow in keeping up with a series. I often get distracted by other books and then too much time goes by between books and I lose the plot along the way. Having read the summary of The Last of August I don’t think I can afford to not read the book soon. It seems to take place immediately after A Study in Charlotte and I’m excited to see where Brittany Cavallaro takes Jamie and Charlotte next.
This past month I was able to read two new books and reread one of my favorites:
I was pretty happy with the fact that I was able to read three books this past month considering that I was hoping only to finish Midnight in Broad Daylight before June arrived. I really enjoyed all the books I read (or in one case reread) and don’t know if I can chose a favorite for May.
A Study in Charlotte is a modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes and it was witty and entertaining. Midnight in Broad Daylight is a nonfiction book about a Japanese American family before and during World War II. I found this book highly insightful and it also proved to be timely for current events as well. And lastly I decided to reread the Doon series again and just finish the first book Doon over the Memorial Day holiday here in America. This series to me is the novel equivalent of comfort food. I love the world of Doon so much and I was amazed by how much I’ve forgotten since reading it last year. It may become a tradition to try and read the Doon series every summer.
Are there any books on your reread list? I’d love to know about in the comments below!
