With some inspiration from https://asmuchcake.com

I spent time with lodgers;

  • Villa des Roses, Willem Elsschot
  • Craven House, Parrick Hamilton
  • The Paying Guests, Sarah Waters;

the dead;

  • Beyond Black, Hilary Mantel
  • The Amber Spyglass, Philip Pullman
  • Lincoln in the Bardo, George Saunders

And scary men;

  • The Collector, John Fowles
  • Perfume, Patrick Suskind.

There was one from a fellow blogger:

and an error:

  • I missed out listing The Double by Jose Soramago in 16/17!

There were disappointments:

  • Ludmila’s Broken English, DBC Pierre

There were 59 books.

The Book of the year 2017/18 could have been The Ballad and the Source, Alone in Berlin or A Prayer for Owen Meany but it is

Time’s Arrow by Martin Amis

The first book of 18/19 is Pensees Blaise Pascal.
