Well, I’m officially a wreck this year: part way through July, I ran into some health troubles. I’m doing better now, but I lost about a week where I wasn’t able to do much of anything, including read. Thankfully I finished The Diamond Eye by Kate Quinn before that happened, so at least I read something this month!
- The Diamond Eye by Kate Quinn
I really enjoyed The Diamond Eye – it’s about Lyudmila “Mila” Pavlichenko, a Soviet female sniper with 309 official kills, who also befriended Eleanor Roosevelt. It is based on Mila’s life story, with the exception of a FDR assassination plot that Quinn added – the assassin wanted to frame Mila during the Soviet official visit to the United States that she was part of.
So what have you read over the last month? What was your favourite book?
