Most of my reading time in August was taken with reading Charles Dickens’s Our Mutual Friend, but I did read 7 other books too, all 7 of them crime fiction, although you could consider Our Mutual Friend as a type of crime fiction too. They are (in the order I finished reading them):
- Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie
- Started Early, Took my Dog by Kate Atkinson
- Postern of Fate by Agatha Christie
- Guilty Consciences a collection of short stories edited by Martin Edwards
- A Room Full of Bones by Elly Griffiths – post to follow
- The Girl on the Stairs by Louise Welsh
- Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
- The Old Man in the Corner by Baroness Orczy
