4 books I've loved recently
10 June 2015
The Rosie Project & The Rosie Effect - These books about Don Tillman, the man who creates 'The Wife Project', a scientific test to find the perfect partner, are heartwarmingly funny and incredibly endearing. There were many a laugh out loud (read: snorting unattractively) moments for me reading these on my commute and I'm rather gutted that I won't be able to discover them for the first time again.
Life After Life - I'm currently halfway through this delight from Kate Atkinson and it's entirely unlike anything i've ever read before. The whole concept is captivating... Ursula Todd re-lives her life again and again, being given an infinite number of chances to change her destiny. Fascinating, witty and compassionate all wrapped up in one.
Light is The New Black - I've only read the sneak peaks that I was sent when I pre-ordered the book but this book from Rebecca Campbell shines bright. An empowering, relatable and soulful read.. I can't wait to get my hands on the whole thing!
Station Eleven - A post-apocalypse that had me on the edge the whole way through. Mainly because I kept thinking "WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO ME IF THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED???" and then swiftly after "BEN! WE NEED TO HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE FOR WHEN THIS HAPPENS!!". Station Eleven is a moving tale which jumps was thrilling and thought provoking in equal measure.
