Oh, the Romans! But before we get to that, a roundup of last month’s reading list:
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee – Innocence, bigotry, and a lawyer named Atticus Finch. 5/5
- Stone Mattress: Nine Tales by Margaret Atwood – A wonderful collection of short stories about old age, death, and exits. 4/5
- The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie – Got as far as the middle of part 2 when I decided to put it on hold for now. It’s taking a while to get into the writing.
- Ubik by Philip K. Dick – The book club’s science fiction book for the month. 4/5
And for September’s reading list, here they are:
- I, Claudius by Robert Graves – This has been on my shelf for the longest time, and I felt inspired to read it. I love ancient history, and Roman history will always be one of my favorite topics. Passed the halfway mark the other way and I can’t put it down!
- The Blue Flower by Penelope Fitzgerald – A book that piqued my interest because of its historical basis. Purchased the Kindle edition until I can find a print edition, hopefully at the upcoming MIBF next week.
- Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee – The book club’s book of the month, which we’ll be discussing with our friends from Flips Flipping Pages.
How about you, any interesting reads this month? :)
