Linking up with The Circle of Pine Trees for a year in books.
The Elly Griffiths book is the 6th in her series about Ruth Galloway, an forensic archaeologist who lives on the bleak Norfolk Coastal Marshes and works at a fictional university in North Norfolk. I enjoyed it but found it slightly predictable. It is best to start with the first in the series if you want to read these well written crime books. ( The Crossing Places published in 2009 is the first)
To the Edge of the Sea by Christina Hall is a memoir about growing up on the Hebridian Islands of South Uist, Benbecula, Barra and then to secondary school in Fort William in the 1940s and 50s. My Library copy is in the Large Print Isis Reminiscence Series, but it isn't necessary to be short sighted or an OAP to enjoy their books!
I shall be reading some of my own books in May although the library van will be round on the 16th so there might be something in the books I've ordered to tempt me away from them.
