October Rewind

My October rewind includes three books that I still think about, years after reading them.

2012: Swimming Studies by Leanne Shapton – I still think about the watercolours of pools and the photographs of bathers and the best descriptions of swimming that you’ll read.

2013: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding – sorry haters, I loved it.

2014: The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton – atmospheric.

2015: Family Life by Akhil Sharma – memorable.

2016: Hot Milk by Deborah Levy – stunning.

2017: The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah Krasnostein – I said Family Life was memorable but this one is memorable for very different reasons.

    • Swimming Studies, Family Life and Hot Milk. Reckon I’ll also be thinking about the Trauma Cleaner for a long time – amazing book and worth grabbing if it hits the shelves in the UK.
