“Tell you what I like the best —
‘Long about knee-deep in June,
‘Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, — some afternoon
Like to jes’ git out and rest,
And not work at nothin’ else!”
–  James Witcomb Riley, Knee Deep in June

May was a terrible month. I’ve been ill for three weeks up to now and I can’t concentrate when I’m like this so I haven’t read anything at all in the last three weeks. Hopefully June will be better for me.


The Mysterious Affair at StylesThe Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie

Summary: The famous case that launched the career of Hercule Poirot. When a wealthy heiress is murdered, Poirot steps out of retirement to find the killer. As the master detective makes his way through the list of suspects, he finds the solution in an elaborately planned scheme almost impossible to believe.


jamaica innJamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier

Summary: After the death of her mother, Mary Yellan crosses the windswept Cornish moors to Jamaica Inn, the home of her Aunt Patience. There she finds Patience a changed woman, downtrodden by her domineering, vicious husband Joss Merlyn. The inn is a front for a lawless gang of criminals, and Mary is unwillingly dragged into their dangerous world of smuggling and murder. Before long she will be forced to cross her own moral line to save herself.


margaret atwoodThe Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Summary: The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire – neither Offred’s nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.


Hopefully I’ll manage to read something this month.
