July is here and the summer holidays have officially started here in Glasgow. If you’re looking to add some great titles to your summer reading list, we’ve got you covered.
There are three fictional and three memoir books to choose from this month – all very different and creative; two poetry books, one by Iona Lee and the other by Liz Lochhead; a biography of Jane Haining; an examination of the italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi; travel to Iceland; and Amanda Thomson’s Scots Dictionary. I think there is definitely something for everyone this month!
