For the Month of July I read 6 books!
1.The Lost Hours................Karen White
2.The House on the Strand.......Daphne du Maurier
3.All Things Bright and Beautiful..James Herriott
6.The White Dragon..............Anne McCaffrey
I have to say, it was a good reading month. I enjoyed all the books I read. And especially the books I REread: Dragonflight, Dragonquest and the White Dragon.
I have come to enjoy Karen White’s writing and of course Daphne du Maurier, and James Herriott is just so enjoyable and calming that I would be shocked if someone didn’t like his books.
Then of course there is Anne McCaffrey. She wrote many more books about Pern and the dragons and people of Pern but this first trilogy and the Harper Hall trilogy and the separate book on Master Harper Robinton are my favorites. But I wouldn’t have “not read” any or her Pern books. It’s like going home.
I was so sad when Anne McCaffrey passed away, knowing the person who’s wonderful mind made the most fabulous characters and most unforgettable dragons in the world had gone “between”. I will be forever grateful that long ago, I had the opportunity to meet the grand lady at a convention.
It saddens me to realize that of the four authors I read this month, only one remains to write more books for me to read. But I have yet to read all of Daphne du Maurier’s books. I think my next of hers (when I can find it) will be Frenchman’s Creek. It seems I have a love for books that take place in England.. especially older books.
So.. that is it for me for the month of July. I am having a hard time letting go of Pern to get myself involved in another book yet so August may not prove to be one of my better reading months!
Until then… Happy reading to everyone!
