The Well-read Naturalist

I’ve been remiss in checking what John Riutta, The Well-read Naturalist, has been reading and blogging about recently so this is a catch-up.

All Among the Barley by Melissa Harrison. John has beaten me to reviewing this new novel from Melissa Harrison.  But having read this review, and having met the author once (and smiled, sometimes laughed, at her tweets often) I shall be reading it soon.

And that is partly because of the quality of the four anthologies she produced a while back Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather by Tessa Boase. John liked this book and regards it as ‘truly eye-opening’.   That’s a relief as I would have had doubted my own similar view if he hadn’t liked it.

I’ll be putting together my ‘Books of 2018’ list soon.  I’m sure this will be in the shortlist.

See my review here. Here is John’s.

You: a natural history by William B. Irvine. .  This looks interesting – shall I review it?

Eye of the Shoal by Helen Scales. This is another book that I have been meaning to read and review – John has beaten me to this one too.  Sounds like it is worth a read.

  1. The cover looks to be an Orange tinted version , of one of my favourite Ladybird books,
    " What to look for in Summer", illustrated by Charles Tunnicliffe.
