Cecily's book reviews

In general I've written reviews of every book I've read since I joined GoodReads (RIP) in May 08, along with one or two I read prior to that. More recent reviews tend to be longer (sometimes a tad too long?). I always carry a book, though I don't get as much time as I'd like to get engrossed - life is busy, but in a good way. Too many of my favourite authors died without writing enough! Apart from reading, and writing about reading, I enjoy Scrabble, good restaurants, woodland, and attending the theatre.
Summer Lightning - P.G. Wodehouse The third Blandings novel. Classic farce with twisting plots and wonderful similes. Gally writing his memoirs; Empress of Blandings stolen; the Efficient Baxter acting madly; Ronnie Fish and Sue Brown; Percy Pilbeam "investigating" various things; all the wrong people turning up in the wrong place at the wrong time, causing confusion. Great preface by PGW.
