Wow, where has the summer gone? I have been reading a little, but the trip to SFU really made July fly by. Then I needed to make things up to my kids, so in the past week I’ve been to Wonderland, Centre Island and the beach. Whew!  I don’t have time to blog individually about the last few books I’ve read, but here’s a little update for the record.

 We Have Always Lived in the Castle – my favourite Vicious Circle book club pick yet. Fabulous, atmospheric gothic novella by Shirley Jackson.

 Stanley Park by Timothy Taylor – the perfect book for my flight to Vancouver.

 Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldeman – a moving look at how two very different mothers cope with a tragic accident.

 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – what can I say? I didn’t want to be the very last person on earth to read this. I did quite enjoy it.

 Hopefully I’ll finish Michael Crummey’s Galore in time for book club on Tuesday.

 I plan to get back to posting reviews here very soon. In the meatime, here’s a few pics from Vancouver.

 Hope your summer has been grand!
