May Rewind

My May rewind includes one of the best books I’ve read in the last decade (hint: striiiiiike!)

2012: The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach – I can’t emphasise just how much I loved this book. Crazy love.

2013: The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg – funny, sad, real.

2014: Fictitious Dishes by Dinah Fried – the perfect coffee-table book for literature-lovers.

2015: The Night Rainbow by Claire King – I still think about little Pea…

2016: Penelope by Rebecca Harrington – hilarious.

2017: The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman – grim but compelling.

  1. So glad you loved The Art of Fielding…I did too! And I need to read The Middlesteins…I loved her 2 most recent books.

    • I raced to get her latest books because I loved The Middlesteins so much…. And of course, haven’t read them yet 😕 I really, really need to stop buying books!

  2. When I saw The Art of Fielding in my favourite charity bookshop I pounced, knowing how much you loved it – since then, I have totally failed to read it. This post has reminded me to get to it!

  3. I read and reviewed Fictitious dishes too. A fun read. And I really like The street sweeper. Perlman has such heart. Loved his Three dollars also, and Seven types. But Three dollars sticks.
