Books read – 2014

Jan – Mar

1. Enid Blyton: The Biography – Barbara Stoney

2. Claudine at School – Colette (Quite an entertaining read but I don’t think I’ll read the rest of the series as I don’t find Claudine a likeable character.)

3. An Omelette and a Glass of Wine – Elizabeth David (She writes about food with such class. )

4. The Picnic: A History – Walter Levy (Did not enjoy this as much as I did for Breakfast: a History , but thanks to this book, I discovered the next two which were featured because they have picnics central to the plot.)

5. The Bad Seed – William March (So good I finished it in one night!! And it was a weekday night too.)

6. Picnic at Hanging Rock – Joan Lindsay (Now I want to watch the film!)

7. Think Like a Cat: How to Raise a Well-Adjusted Cat–Not a Sour Puss – Pam Johnson-Bennett 

8. Ministry of moral panic : stories – Amanda Lee Koe (She has talent. Her characters seem so real, they could be your HDB neighbour. This is one of my favourite stories in the collection, The King of Caldecott Hill.)
