Books Bought and Read – April 2018

Books Bought

A quite good month on the book buying front. One I needed for book club. One because a boy recommended it (unfortunately already consigned to history, but at least I’ve still got the book to read ❤ ❤ ❤ ) . And three EMERGENCY purchases due to finding myself out of the house and bookless.

Let’s start with the emergency books. I was reading In Watermelon Sugar by Richard Brautigan and I was going to meet my friend for cocktails and food.

I had a 40min rail replacement bus journey to get there and back. Sorted. Except In Watermelon Sugar doesn’t take long to read. Half the pages don’t have text on the full page. So I had finished it just after I arrived. Luckily there was a massive Sainsbury’s next to the train station. I found a sale section with some super cheap books left over from a promo they had recently had and got this lot for under a tenner!

Things A Bright Girl Can Do – Sally Nicholls

A Galaxy of Her Own: Amazing Stories of Women in Space – Libby Jackson

Rebel Voices: The Rise of Votes for Women – Louise Kay Stewart

Later in the month I picked up Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi for a book club in June.

Finally I got Sarah by J T Leroy. Since getting this book, a friend told me I have to watch a film made about JT Leroy (Author: the JT LeRoy story). So I need to get round to reading this book, then watching the film!
