A quick read but still entertaining, "The Arrangements" is a quirky, fictional short story about Donald Trump and his family. Give it a try if you've got a spare 30 minutes. I wouldn't say it was anything special, but an enjoyable 3 stars from me!
It's 3 stars for Shari Lapena's “Someone We Know", a story full of secrets, gossip and infidelity. I enjoyed it, but it was an okay read for me and probably not one I'll remember long term.
“Unnatural Causes” is a fascinating read. Dr Richard Shepard tells the story of his life and career working as a forensic pathologist. This is an interesting, honest and human look at his role and the events that required his involvement. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!
"The Lost Words" is a beautiful audiobook, narrated by a selection of famous voices. I enjoyed this collection of poetry, but I can't help but feel that the print book would have made for a more magical read. It’s 3 stars from me.
"Why We Sleep" is a really educational read that I'd recommend for anyone interested in the subject of sleep. It covers all aspects of the topic without being overwhelming. This was a good 4 star read for me!
For me “The Authenticity Project” was an enjoyable read but it wasn't a particularly memorable one and I found it to be a little predictable. Full of feel good themes, this could be the light read that you need at the moment. It's 3 stars from me.
Anna Kendrick's autobiography is a humorous read and I'm sure that it would be well loved by her huge fan base, but for me, I'm sorry to say that it wasn't that interesting or memorable - 2 stars.
"Behind the Scenes at the Museum" tells the historical story of one woman and her family. I couldn't connect with this story and struggled to keep up with the huge plethora of characters. I'm afraid this was a 1 star read for me.
I listened to Kim Jiyoung's story in audiobook format and for me it was just okay. The author Cho Nam-Joo uses this story to illustrate a really important message though and I think this is worthwhile read, especially as it's so short. This was 3 stars for me, but I'd definitely still recommend it and may try reading, rather than listening, to this one again soon.
“The Day the World Came to Town" was a really interesting book which exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed hearing about the kindness and generosity of the people of Gander who unexpectedly found themselves as hosts to thousands of people. A strong 4 star read for me!
