Atelier Oct '18 - July '19
Book reviews of what I read in the last 12 months
All the books I read in the last couple of months, actually reaching back to August 18, so it is quite a lot. Short stories, family drama, bibliography, love novels, you name it.
With summer knocking on our door, here is my list of books I have recently read or I am about to read during my favourite season of the year.

The end of uni means time to read
After finishing all of my deadlines at uni, I finally have time to review some of the books I read in last three months!
January + February '18
A book about a killer nanny, a brilliant biography on Anne Brontë's life and a study of how to write a bestseller. When I put them all next to each other, it looks like a rather interesting combination.
A book dealing with alcoholism, the SS occupation of Ukraine in 1941, two psychological novels on race and our society, and Ali Smith's political and mainly human narration of the current British and world situation.
Which one of Hanks' stories is my favourite one? And which British classic have I finally managed to finish?
Ready for a modern classic, unusually interesting thriller, a story following the ghosts' thoughts, or a novel about a search for missing relatives?
Talking about Vinegar Girl and three books I had to read for my uni courses. I have to admit, compare to August I read basically nothing!
Oh I read a lot in August. 8 books in English and 2 in Czech. Ready to set off to New York, Ireland, English or even Czech countryside?
Regarding the settings of the books, I travelled with the narrators to hot Spain, ancient Greece, rainy Scotland and even to space. Ready to dive in?
June was amazing! Brussels, Rome, Prague and everywhere I read, read, read and read. Six books are waiting for you in my June Atelier. Have you come across any of them?
I have to admit that I read considerably less throughout May than I had in April. On the other hand, the two books I am about to name have become my ultimate favourite novels.
