The month in review - March

Looking back on March it managed to turn out to be quite a positive month. Would have liked to have done slightly more reading and more consistent blogging but those are both ambitions to take forward into April.

The month included one of the most expected books of the year so far in the form of Solar by Ian McEwan and also saw me take the penultimate step towards completing the Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo ten book Martin Beck crime series.

The books read were:
Bel Ami Guy du Maupassant
All the Conspirators by Christopher Isherwood
The Professor + The Housekeeper by Yoko Ogawa
The Summer Book by Tove Jansson
Cop Killer by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo
Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith
Solar by Ian McEwan

Highlights included the moving The Professor + The Housekeeper and Bel Ami which not only has stood the test of time as a satire on journalism but also as a sharp focus on greed and the lust for power.

Expecting April will be another fulfilling month.
