I love Mary Stewart's non Merlin books, so will try to join in and read this next month.

July - 'The Buried Giant' - Thread now open.
August -'My Cousin Michael' led by Curiosity Killed

Is it too early to be thinkings of a Christmas book (sorry for mentioning Christmas it in July)

Agh, I just read the POST review of The Essex Serpent and I may well have to read it.

Just bumping this up.

The plan for the rest of the year is as follows:

August -'My Cousin Michael' led by Curiosity Killed - Discussion now open
September - 'The Essex Serpent' led by Tree Bee
October -'The Secret Garden' led by Brenda Clough
November - 'Worldwalk' led by Golden Key

Any Christmas suggestions. I was wondering about 'The Thirteen Days of Christmas' by Jenny Overton. A children's book and a quick read. I very much enjoyed reading it in the 1970s and I'd be interested in what i think of it now.

Just bumping this up before it disappears over the horizon.

The programme for the rest of the year so far:
August -'My Cousin Michael' led by Curiosity Killed - Discussion now open
September - 'The Essex Serpent' led by Tree Bee
October -'The Secret Garden' led by Brenda Clough
November - 'Worldwalk' led by Golden Key

Any other suggestions for a December book? I've just read and enjoyed How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. A very romantic and life affirming novel, but not exactly a clear Christmas read, though I guess we don't have to have a Christmas themed book in December.

How to Stop Time looks interesting, I'd give it a go.
As one who tries to avoid the C word, I don't mind when I read it.

I've just had a look at How to Stop Time on Amazon, and I'd be prepared to give it a go
