June Wrap-up

June has gone and we are already going into July. I have been away on a trip for 12 days, but did manage to read four books. June was another good reading month with ten books finished, making the number of books read so far this year to 67. Not much there of what I anticipated in last month's wrap-up, but I am still pleased.

Read in June

I managed to read six Agatha Christie, so pleased with going on with the challenge of reading all her books. They were:

The Listerdale Mystery

Appointment With Death

N or M?

Destination Unknown

The Clocks

At Bertram's Hotel

of which my favourites were Destination Unknown and Appointment With Death. They are easily read, and I like them. There are books with Tuppence and Tommy, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and some other heroines and heros.

Garai, Indrajit - The Man Without Shelter - a story by the author of The Bridge of Little Jeremy. Another Paris story with fascinating characters.

Burlin, Tua - Konungens ultimatum - a historical novel set in Sweden in the 16th century.

Voltaire, Anna - Mordet i Marseillan - a debut and different detective story set in France, with a big dose of humour.

Hugo, Victor - The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (Notre-Dame de Paris) - a classic tale. I have never seen the Phantom of the Opera, but it was interesting to read the original story. This was the only book I read that I anticipated for June.

What's up for July?

Paris in July is here. Emma @ Words and peace will host this year. You can read about her and my plans under the link. Most of my reading will be concentrated to this challenge, and I found nine books on my shelves connected with Paris and France.

  • The Pursuit of Glory - The Five Revolutions That Made Modern Europe 1648-1815 by Tim Banning

  • Axel von Fersen and Queen Marie-Antoinette by Margareta Beckman

  • Notre-Dame de Paris/The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo

  • Hemingway, The Paris Years by Michael Reynolds

  • The Red and the Black by Stendahl

  • Marie Antoinette by Stefan Zweig

  • Arsène Lupin, Gentleman Burglar by Maurice Leblanc

  • Michael Strogoff: The Courier of the Czar by Jules Verne

  • The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy

I will not be able to read them all, but let's see where I am at the end of the month.
