Sunday Post Feb. 19

vintage letters
This week involved a lot of catch-up on reviews for books that came out in January – and were read many months before. I really do need to make an effort to write the review when I finish the book, instead of waiting until the pub date is right on top of me (or receding in the rearview mirror!)

Last week’s reviews

A Really Good Day by Ayelet Waldman
The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian
Packed: Lunchtime Hacks to Squeeze More Nutrients Into Your Day by Becky Alexander and Michelle Lake
Rather Be The Devil by Ian Rankin

Next Week’s Reviews (fingers crossed!)

The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood (My most recent book club read, chosen by me, in fact.)
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
How to Murder Your Life by Cat Marnell

Plus a new feature highlighting vintage cookbooks and other cooking ephemera in my collection.

Currently Keeping Me Up Too Late

Celine by Peter Heller (galley)
South and West by Joan Didion (galley)

Review: Rather Be The Devil by Ian Rankin


Review: The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood


  1. I’m curious about Norse Mythology and seeing Neil Gaiman’s take on it.

  2. If I left my reviews that long I’d have to read the book again!! You’ve got a great memory to be able to do it.

  3. I’m keen to hear what you though of The Natural Way of Things. I read it when it came out here in Australia a while ago and enjoyed it but think I missed the point completely!
