Hello, hello, hello you lovely lot!
I have a confession, I bought a lot of books last month and I mean a lot. There was a combination of books I bought in store, online and a few from subscription boxes. I’ve been quite good at being restrained recently but this month that went completely out of the window, oops. So here’s a little haul for you guys and evidence of my lack of self-control when it comes to books.
Far From the Tree – Robin Benway
I’ve heard good things about this novel which centres around three adopted siblings and how they all deal with this in their individual lives. Grace has just given up her own baby leading to her to think about her own biological parents. Maya isn’t sure exactly where she fits anymore. While oldest sibling Joaquin isn’t interested in his biological mother after growing up in the foster system.
Witchborn – Nicholas Bowling
While I was in my local bookshop I was wondering if I could find something including witches while I wait for the next book in The Graces series. Then I saw Witchborn, which has witches, questions of madness and more and I’m so excited.
Your Life in My Hands -Rachel Clarke
There’s so much we don’t know about what happens in the NHS and what it’s like for our doctors. I found this for £3 so I had no excuse really…
Bygone Badass Broads – Mackenzie Lee
A collection of women that probably weren’t in the history books, ok there weren’t that many kick-ass women in my history books. Mackenzie Lee wanted to show women we might not have heard of and I’m so there for that!
Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls 2 – Elena Favilli & Francesca Cavallo
I LOVED the first book about amazing ladies (review here) so of course I went and bought the second one straight away. Spoiler alert, it’s awesome.
Together We Rise – The Organisers of The Women’s March
Released on the one year anniversary of the Women’s March, this has some impressive contributors and looks at the before, during and what next for the movement. I wrote a whole post on it in a collaboration with Harper360 which you can read here.
The Smoke Thieves – Sally Green
I got this in my most recent Illumicrate box and they’ve been really upping the fantasy recently. This has four main protagonists living very different lives and are all impacted by the coming war.
Blood and Sand – C.V Wyk
The second book I received in Illumicrate. I’m not 100% sure because it’s something that I’d pick up myself. It’s about Ancient Rome and rebellion. I’ll give it a go.
The Red Clocks – Leni Zumas
I actually forgot that I ordered this. I have high hopes for this a dystopian novel set in a time when IVF and abortions are banned looks at the lives of a group of women. I hope this is good.
A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I fell in love with Chimamanda’s way of thinking when I watched her Ted Talk. So when I found this I thought it would be great to pick it up because she’s a brilliant writer. This is only 65 pages, so absolutely tiny but I’m looking forward to what she’s going to say.
