I read 17 books in June (who signed up for too many blog tours?) but these are my five favourite. Links from each title will take you to my full review. You can find a list of the books I’ve read so far in 2022 here. If we’re not already friends on Goodreads, send me a friend request or follow my reviews.
The Death of Remembrance (DCI Daley #10) by Denzil Meyrick (Polygon) – A skilfully crafted plot, an authentic sense of place, moments of drama and compelling characters mean this had all the ingredients I look for in a crime thriller.
Seek The Singing Fish by Roma Wells (époque) – A powerful, moving and beautifully written story about a young girl caught up in the Sri Lankan civil war.
Kezia and Rosie by Rebecca Burns (Dahlia Publishing) – The tender, insightful story of two sisters trying to make sense of the adult world amid family upheaval.
The Martins by David Foenkinos, trans. by Rachel Ward (Gallic Books) – A charming, funny and thoroughly entertaining story about an author who can’t help being drawn into the life of the family who are the subject of his novel.
The Fire Killer by Ross Greenwood (Boldwood Books) – An ingenious, well-crafted and compelling police procedural.
