The Puzzly – The ISOTCMN Book Of The Month – June 2021

So June 2021, and normal service has been resumed on the blog – indeed, it almost seems like I was overdoing it, with thirteen books in a non-holiday month. All of my various deadline, both work-related and Brian Flynn-related were put to rest at the start of the month, so I’ve been letting myself indulge in some quality reading time. The fact that Professor (formerly Mrs) Puzzle Doctor has been watching wall-to-wall cricket, tennis and football helps, to be honest…

So, thirteen books. What were they, what did I think of them and which was the best read of the month?

So, book of the month? No clear winner here, I’m afraid. It could be the McGerr book, which I enjoyed immensely, especially the behind-the-scenes stuff of a TV show, although it goes a bit thriller-y at the end. No, this month’s Puzzly goes to someone who doesn’t need any more awards, especially imaginary ones like this – Lawrence Block. The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza was exactly the book I needed at the time I read it – Bernie Rhodenbarr is such good company and I’m looking forward to meeting up with him again soon.

So next month? Well, there are new books from Catherine Ryan Howard and Martin Edwards, and some classic crime fiction yet to be decided on. See you soon.
