"Stories to Make You Smile" is an enjoyable read that you can pick up for free. A great way to get into reading and discover new authors. I didn't love all the stories, but it was still a nice 3 star read.
Another quick read from the Penguin Modern Series, this little book contains three sections of musings by artist Andy Warhol. I enjoyed it and found it quite interesting to read about this man and his life. Definitely recommended if that's something you're interested in. I'd give this one 4 stars.
“Parable” is a lovely story about one man's love for his dog. It’s a poignant read and one that'll make you smile, and possibly cry! This was a great 5 star read for me.
“Before Her” is a short memoir of Jacqueline Woodson's romantic history. It's warm and moving in places. I didn't love it, but it was really enjoyable - I'm giving my first read of The One collection 3 stars.
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!
"The Goddess of Macau" is a wonderful collection of stories that I devoured over the past couple of weeks. I didn't love them all, but that's only natural in a collection. One story in particular stood out for me and will probably stay with me for some time. I'd definitely recommend this for short stories fans and those interested in learning a little about the culture of Macau. It’s 4 stars from me!
“The Weddings” is a lovely story about modern marriage, secrets and stories untold. It wasn't my favourite of the Inheritance Series but still a solid 4 stars!
"No Home in this World" is a collection of thought-provoking short stories that looks injustices in the world from a number of angles. If you're a fan of short stories, I'd recommend you give this a try. Read them slowly so you have enough time to truly take it all in. It's 4 stars from me!
This little book contains some highly influential and powerful speeches given by climate change activist Greta Thunberg over the past year. I'm knocking off a star because if you consider this book as a whole, it's quite repetitive, but still a recommended read. 4 stars!
"An Amorous Discourse in the Suburbs of Hell" is an enjoyable quick read, but it's not something that's going to stay with me forever. It sits somewhere in the middle of my varying opinions of Deborah Levy's work so far - 3 stars.
