IMWAYR is hosted by The Book Date.
I didn’t do an update last week as I really didn’t have much to report. This week’s been quite quiet on the blog too, I think being busy as work means I don’t have to mental energy to write reviews when I get home. And then it was gorgeous weather this weekend just gone, so I did outside stuff.
You can catch up with what’s on my radar for March and I have a couple of giveaways coming up. I’ve bought loads of books this month, so I better hurry up and start reading them!
The blossom is starting to come out where I live, and the warmer weather has meant I made a start clearing up the front garden. We have loads of self-sown poppies coming up, but it does mean it looks a bit of a mess right now, but I’m sure it’ll be lovely when they are flowering.
This Fortnight I Finished:
The Migration by Helen Marshall [Gifted] ☆☆☆☆☆
Big ideas wrapped in a very human story, beautiful and thought-provoking, even hopeful. I loved it.
POPSUGAR: 41. A “cli-fi” (climate fiction) book
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James ☆☆☆
Big, meandering story, parts I liked and other times I was just confused. Just don’t think his style is my cup of tea.
ATY: 32. A book with more than 500 pages
POPSUGAR: 8. A book about a hobby
The Dry by Jane Harper ☆☆☆
This was a nice simple book to listen to after the Marlon James. Nothing amazing but good enough.
POPSUGAR: 47. Two books that share the same title
ATY: 36. A book featured on an NPR Best Books of the Year list
This Fortnight’s Reviews:
All the Lonely People by David Owen ☆☆☆☆
I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman ☆☆☆☆☆
Reading: The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
Listening to: The Salt Path by Raynor Winn
