If I was going to recommend one of these it would be Child 44 closely followed by The Strain. Just saying...

Did you like or dislike the end?

Dislike. Terrible end and made no sense at all. I don't even think Zusak knew how to end it and just made up all that to finish the book. Too bad too because the rest of the book was great.

Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov

Would love to hear your thoughts on it - we have a really really long thread on it here.

My loot:

Nazi Literature In The Americas - Bolaño, Roberto
Mrs Dalloway - Woolf, Virginia
I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive - Earle, Steve
Indignation - Roth, Philip
Gösta Berling's Saga - Lagerlöf, Selma
The Big Nowhere - Ellroy, James

Not a whole lot for July, but all of them (except possibly Roth) really really good.
