It’s Monday What Are You Reading?

It's Monday, What are you Reading copy

It’s Monday What Are you Reading is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Sheila over at Book Journey. It’s a chance to share what you’ve been reading over the last week and what books you have planned for the week ahead. Every Monday I share my latest vintage reads and the book being read by The Vintage Book Group.

This week I put my ongoing books to one side and read The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice. I had been meaning to read this for ages and managed to get a copy in a charity shop while I was staying in Bath a few weeks ago. The book is set in the mid 1950s in an England still recovering after the second world war. I really enjoyed this book, firstly because of the era it’s set in, secondly because it’s set between a crumbling English country house and London and thirdly because the plot and characters are very well written.

Having read The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets I am returning to the other two books I’ve had on the go for a while, The Island set in Crete in the years surrounding the second world war and A Glass of Blessings a book written in the 1950s by Barbara Pym.

This week with my daughter being back at school I am hoping to finish my unfinished reads and make a start on something new.

The Vintage Book Group are currently reading The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene. Our next book is A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolfe. If you’d like to join in on Goodreads you can sign up here. The group is open to anyone, you don’t have to be a vintage lover, just a fan of a good book.
