Before I proceed to this month's reading list, a quick recap of the last month's books:
- The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett - The book club's book of the month. 3/5.
- Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel - Spillover from May. Currently at page 322 of 404. Fewer than a hundred pages left!
- How to be both by Ali Smith - A little underwhelmed with this book. 3/5.
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - What a mess of a book! Ugh. 1/5.
