It’s halfway through the year, and I’m happy with what I’ve read this month and this half of the year. I’m grateful to the bloggers I read for steering me to such interesting picks. Three of this month’s books were very good (Hill, Vargas and Holt), and my favorite is The Summer of Dead Toys by Antonio Hill.
1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
2. Black Star Nairobi by Mukoma Wa Ngugi
3. The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver
4. More Bitter Than Death by Camilla Grebe and Åsa Träff, translated by Paul Norlen
5. The Summer of Dead Toys by Antonio Hill, translated by Laura McGoughlin
6. Death of the Demon by Anne Holt, translated by Anne Bruce
7. The Ghost Riders of Ordebec by Fred Vargas, translated by Siân Reynolds
