Read: A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier ★★★☆☆ I enjoyed the gentle pace and mild despair. For the most part it felt like it was right in place in between the wars. 📚
Read: the confession by Jessie Burton ★★★☆☆ 📚
Read: Surfacing – Kathleen Jamie ★★★★☆
you are not lost, just melodramatic. The path is at your feet, see? Now carry on.
📚 super book connecting archaeology & or relationship with nature. Must try her poems as I’ve loved all the books of essays. (First book of 2020)
Read: Olive Kitteridge ★★★★★ As good as I expected. I was completely absorbed by stories. Probably the last book I’ll finish this year and possible the best.
Read: Rosewater by Tade Thompson ★★½☆☆ I like the Nigerian setting and the less esoteric parts. Found the time jumping annoying on Kindle.
Read: Marilyn and Me by Ji-min Lee ★★★★☆
Not sure if I’ve ever read a book by a Korean before! Enjoyed, and was educated by this one. Marilyn is more in the title than the tale.
Read: Shadows on Our Skin by Jennifer Johnston ★★★★★ heartbreaking. 📚
Read: The Leavers by Lisa Ko ★★★★★ great read that grew and grew on me. Chinese illegal immigrants in New York and back in China. Great characters and story.📚
Read: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett ★★★★☆ good fun modern fairy tale, with some unlikely happenings.
Read: The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins ★★★☆☆ 📚 l think I would have liked this better if I’d read it quicker.
