Recycled Book Reading Challenge: Maeve Binchy’s ‘Nights of Rain And Stars’

Greetings all 🙂

Good wishes for a lovely week’s end! I promised I would relaunch the RBRC and share my 1st book post on the 15th. As today is 15th day, I am here, as promised.

This month, my challenge book was ‘Nights of rain and stars’ by Maeve Binchy. As you can see by the image, this book has had some use before I found it for sale on the old books shelf.

This was a good book. The author clearly put much effort into characterisation. The characters, their personalities, trivialities were carefully considered. As this book is based on the characters interactions with each other, starting in a time of crisis, the personality clashes and reactions seemed very realistic. This personification is what kept me reading.

Readability:

With seventeen chapters, this book was readable within the month. Somedays I was able to read a few chapters, other days I read none.  In my mind, this book would be a good read while on holiday. Maybe not if one is planning to embark on a tour by boat, though. It is not something I would save to read more than once, but the one time, it is good. This is a book for reading and sharing.

Would you like to join the Recycled Book Reading Challenge, or RBRC? The guidelines are simple, you can find those here!

I would like to thank Dr Tanya at Salted Caramel for getting the RBRC party started!

How was your RBRC book?

    • Thank you for sharing about this! Do you remember the titles of any of the ones you thought worth reading? I can put it on my ‘good book list’ & if I see it for decent price, maybe I get it 😉

      • No, not off hand. Mind you my daughter is 23 now, so that was a long while ago. She seemed to enjoy them, and I only read to “check up” on what she was reading at the time.
