200 Books Reviewed

We’ve reached another milestone – 200 books reviewed!

Our 200th review was for Cannery Row, by John Steinbeck. Quite fitting that this review was written by our very own Ms Oh Waily, who is doing a brilliant job at working her way through the books on the 1001 Books list.

The review for Cannery Row is the second review of the three Steinbeck novels on this list. Of Mice and Men was highly thought of, and Grapes of Wrath will also no doubt also be positively reviewed.

Over the past few months, we’ve seen a handful of authors recurring in our reviews.

Charles Dickens has been well-represented, with reviews for Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol and Great Expectations joining the previously-reviewed A Tale of Two Cities and The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.

The four Dashiell Hammett novels were also reviewed in quick successions recently; you can read Ms Oh Waily’s thoughts on The Thin Man, Red Harvest, The Glass Key and The Maltese Falcon.

A review for After the Quake completes the entries of Haruki Murakami novels on the list. It joins Sputnik Sweetheart, Kafka on the Shore and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles; obviously these novels are a popular choice for our reviewers.

There are, however, still 800 books to be reviewed. If you have previously read any of the un-reviewed books on the list, or have been meaning to read any of them, we would love to publish your review. You can join the review crew here. We’re also more than happy (due to being extremely grateful!) if your review has been previously published on your own blog.

Thank you for reading, and for reviewing, and for your support as we slowly make our way through this labour of love.

xx Lynn and Ange xx
