My book of the month: June

Do you know that feeling when you eagerly anticipate the new novel in a favourite series? I have several of these faves and the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths is probably my number one!

Dr Ruth Galloway is an English forensic archaeologist who, it must be said, has a complicated life. I always find myself drawn into the stories in this series, with their mix of archaeology, police procedural plots and, above all, the personal lives of Ruth and all who enter her life. 

I read this novel in one day, while waiting at a hospital (long story). Sadly, I have to wait until 2018 for the next instalment!

The Chalk Pit is the ninth in the series. You can read more about the book on Goodreads


  1. Just read it last week. Love this series too!

  2. This is a series I read as soon as I can get my hands on the newest one. The characters are so real to me. I was so disappointed when the writer began a new series - I thought, no, just write more about Ruth!


Make me happy - please leave a comment!
