"Girl, Woman, Other" is a worthy winner of the Booker Prize. Telling the story of 12 interconnected fictional characters, this is a fantastic observational novel that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend - 5 stars!
"The Salt Path" tells the true story of a couple walking the South West Coast Path. It's wonderfully written and I enjoyed the narration too. With some important messages, this is a thought-provoking read about taking life day by day. It was a great 4 star read for 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.
"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!
“Tell Me a Secret” is a light-hearted look at a work friendship. Can you trust your work colleagues with your deepest secrets? Despite being a little predictable, I enjoyed this story but probably wouldn't recommend the audiobook. This was a good three star read for me.
"Becoming" is an eloquent memoir by Michelle Obama. I enjoyed this candid look at her life so far and feel that I've learned a lot from listening to her stories. This was a 5 star read for me!
“After the End” is an emotional, contemporary novel about two people facing the hardest decision of their lives. I enjoyed the narration and would definitely recommend the audiobook - this was a great 4 star read for 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!
Deborah Levy's early novel "The Unloved" was odd and felt disconnected. I didn't really understand what was going on and therefore didn't enjoy reading it very much - 1 star.
