Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls. I love this book. The stories of loads of amazing women written like fairy stories with amazing illustrations. I just want books like this lying around my house for my children to pick up and look through!
Bit of a kindle 99p sale spree:
- The Circle – Dave Eggers
- Alice – Christina Henry
- Howl’s Moving Castle – Diana Wynne Jones
- I am Malala – Malala Yousafzai
- Still Alice – Lisa Genova
- Anger is an energy – John Lydon
Persepolis – Marjane Satrapi. I’ve been after this for ages and it popped up on a lightning deal for under £5.
The Seed Collectors – Scarlett Thomas. The next book for a book club I’m in. I don’t know anything about it.
Big Little Lies – Liane Moriarty. 99p kindle deal. I LOVED the TV series of this
I’ve decided I should always have an audiobook on the go, so have been getting the audible daily deal. I won’t get many listened to until I’m back at work at the end of August though. I’ve now got:
- Engleby – Sebastian Faulks
- Swimming Lessons – Claire Fuller
- Lincoln in the Bardo – George Saunders
Hot Milk – Deborah Levy (99p kindle deal). I’ve seen too many giant book shop displays of this to pass it by.
After the Man Booker Prize longlist announcement I had to buy a couple of them to read so I picked up:
Solar Bones – Mike McCormack. It’s one sentence. I’m intrigued!
Swing Time – Zadie Smith. I have on goodreads that I’ve read White Teeth, but reading the plot summary I’m not sure I ever actually did read it! So this might be my first Zadie Smith.
More kindle 99p deals:
- The Bone Clocks – David Mitchell
- Dark Places – Gillian Flynn

Bedtime Stories with my Children
Diary of a Minecraft Zombie – Book 1. Utter trash that my son adores.
Danny the Champion of the World – Roald Dahl. I didn’t think I’d ever read this one before but the story seems familiar, so I must have read it once as a child.
Matilda – Roald Dahl. Again!
The Witches – Roald Dahl. Genuinely terrifying!
Picasso and the girl with the ponytail – Laurence Anholt. I know… it’s great though!
Aliens Love Underpants – Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. -The noisy book version. At least it’s over quickly…
