End of February = almost spring, light at the end of the lockdown tunnel and a book stack of this month’s reads.
A colourful stack for a vibrant month of reading!
1) Hamnet – Maggie O’Farrell @headlinebooks – a story inspired by Shakespeare’s son; a story of sibling bonds and a mother’s love and a grief that tests a marriage. Winner of the 2020 @womensprize
2) A Man Called Ove by @backmansk @sceptrebooks – book club book chosen by @oliviac_h – sweet, funny and heart-breaking is the best way to describe the story of Ove a grumpy old man who is simply misunderstood.
3) I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron @doubledaybooks – LOVED this collection of essays by the great writer who describes growing old with wit, wisdom and style!
4. How We Disappeared by @jingjingwrites @oneworldpublications – a beautiful depiction of Japanese occupied Singapore interleaved with modern day characters reflecting or investigating on what happened during those terrible years.
5. Born a Crime by @trevornoah @johnmurrays – see previous post
