I’m slightly late with this one! But it is just about still November… for another 5 hours anyway. I read seven books in October! This compares with only two so far in the whole of November. I guess I was having a quiet social life month back then.
Wake by Anna Hope for book club. This was chosen to tie in with the 100 yr WWI anniversary this year and remembrance day.
I next bought the kindle version of The Odyssey by Homer, translated by Emily Wilson because it was 99p and I’d been reading great things about this translation.
Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile by Adelle Stripe. Bought because I was going to be going to that Lit Fest event.This book looks amazing though. It’s based on the life of Andrea Dunbar, who famously wrote the play Rita, Sue and Bob Too.
I’m a Joke and So Are You: A Comedian’s Take on What Makes us Human by Robin Ince. A supermarket bargain!
Seven this month! Click the book name to be taken to my review.
Miss Nightingale’s Nurses by Kate Eastham
Ponti by Sharlene Tao
In Our Mad and Furious City by Guy Gunaratane
The Mother of All Questions by Rebecca Solnit
Heartburn by Nora Ephron (I somehow completely missed reviewing this one!)
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
Other Posts this Month
I’ve been making an effort to do a few more general book posts – top tens etc. In October I managed to do:
Top Ten Longest Books I’ve Read. Spoiler alert: it contains a lot of Jilly Cooper and a lot of A Song of Fire and Ice books.
Top Ten Villains in Books. Starts out well, then gets a bit ranty!
and a Review of Manchester Literature Festival Events I attended.
Well then, now I’m immediately going to go and write my November wrap up!
