*Cue fanfare* My Summer TBR List

Yay, Yay, Hurray! It is almost the school holidays and frankly, Roll On Friday, as I am sick of making packed lunches now. Six weeks without feels like a lottery prize and so it is with much excitement (because clearly my excitement is easily won) that I am unveiling my Summer Reading Pile.
 It is a mixed bag, there are some Classics that I've never got around to reading (yes, of course I am ashamed); there is an ARC courtesy of my next-door neighbour who is a Super-editor’s mother-in-law; there are some new books that are the latest instalments in series that I enjoy; there are books that I have been meaning to pick up for ages, but have never quite made it into my hand when there was a vacancy; a couple of epistolary stories and finally some non-fiction too. (Actually, I think it might be fictionalised non-fiction in the case of Roman Woman, but I am a sucker for Social History, so I'm not going to quibble.) Some of it might even be classable as Research - at least that will be the story I will stick to as I sit, book in one hand, glass of wine in the other, ignoring the spawn, starting next week.
What's on your list for the summer?

  1. Of your list I've only read "A Great And Terrible Beauty" and skimmed through "City of Lost Souls" Please let us know if any of the above are worth our time?
