Birds, Art, Life by Kyo Maclear, 2018. Non fiction, sort of an extended essay, on looking at the world of art and life whilst looking at birds as a beginner birder. Interesting book, thoughtful.
New mystery by james Oswald, No Time To Cry, 2018, with a new set of characters. He works another inoffensive entertaining ghost into the works as well. I don't usually like ghosts, but Oswald does them well. A good mystery, good new heroine, good plot. A promising beginning to a new series.
Three Things About Elsie, by Joanna Cannon, 2018. Good book, dementia captured in a unique way. Lovely characters and good story.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Muriel Spark, 1961. never read this book, and am glad to have now. An interesting take on a single woman, how critical the world is of single women, how much the same now
