    For some light reading, May I sgusegt some of Mary Stewart’s romantic mystery novels of the late 1950’s early 1960’s. They are a lot of fun, fabulous European locations, such as Greece, South of France etc, and her heroines are so likaeble and stylish.Not drippy or sappy at all.Some titles are:“Madam, Will you Talk”“The Moonspinners”“My Brother Michael”“This Rough Magic”

    If you are up for something very wliterry, might I recommend “Under the Net” by Iris Murdoch, which I just finished and it absolutely blew me away. She has a masterful way with language, her descriptions just fix you in a moment in this very precise way and nothing about the way she chooses words ever feels stale or familiar. Under the Net is a fun romp compared to some of her other darker material, and it takes place in this very stylish boho London of the 1950s. Next on my list, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” a mash up of Jane Austen’s classic, but with zombies…
