Simone: I was reading Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout, but it turns out that this is a sequel-of-sorts to My Name is Lucy Barton, so that will have to go first instead. Well, after I finish Thursday’s Children by Nicci French.
Iris: Finally decided to give Nimona a go. Enjoying it so far!
Sywert: Just finished Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany, now starting Black and Blue: Inside the Divide Between the Police and Black America.
Martijn: March Violets by Philip Kerr (Bernie Gunther #1). Gumshoe noir in 1936 Berlin, very good! Also reading Road Kill by Kinky Friedman (no longer in print). Kinky is on Willie Nelson’s tourbus and, in the meantime, solves a mystery. Funny.
Sophie: Just finished Black Sunday by Thomas Harris. For the ABC Reading Bingo Chart (‘book published in the year you were born’). Dated but also a good reminder that terrorism is absolutely not a modern invention. Now almost halfway through an ARC of Gnomon by Nick Harkaway. A massive, bewildering puzzle that is very close to going boom, as Harkaway’s books inevitably do. I do love me an author who rejoices in words and has an imagination that matches the size of his vocabulary, though!
