I managed to fill three more squares on my bingo card in July:
By an author of a different gender: The Assault by Harry Mulisch. I enjoyed this book a lot. It is about a boy whose family was murdered in WWII under confusing circumstances and how he deals with this into adulthood and learns piece by piece what happened and why.
Historical Fiction: The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo, set in 1893 Malaysia. I will be reviewing this later this week for a blog tour, and coincidentally the book group I just joined at the library will also be discussing this book this week. Another book I enjoyed.
So it looks like I only need a book with only words on the cover to get at least one bingo for the summer. I pulled two books off my shelf — one short, one long — so I have options.
August is one of my favorite months, not only because it includes my birthday but because it is back to school season. All of the school supplies are in the stores and even though I don’t need any of it I still find myself wandering through the aisles of pens and notebooks with a wistful longing.
