Re: What are you reading? June 2020

I’ve just started Biloxi by Mary Miller, a contemporary story about a man who takes in a dog after his wife leaves him. I enjoy books about animals.

I’m also reading via Pigeonhole The Perfect Life by Valerie Keogh, a psychological thriller. It started off slow but it’s now picked up pace.

I’m now reading The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker, a bit of Greek mythology, about Achilles and Briseis. It’s my f2f book group read. I’m enjoying it so far.
