Final bimonthly round up of 2019. A real spread this winter from fiction to philosophy to history to essays to journalism – all of which have kept me relentlessly turning the pages until the very end.
1. ‘Feminists don’t wear pink and other lies’ curated by @scarcurtis in aid of @girlupcampaign published by @penguinbooks – inspiring collection of essays by incredible women telling their stories about what feminism means to them.
2. ‘Find Me’ by André Aciman published by @faberbooks – the sequel to the seminal Call Me By Your Name, keeping Elio and Oliver alive.
3. ‘Essays in Love’ by @alain_de_botton published by @picador – see previous post
4. ‘Bad Blood’ by John Carreyrou published by @penguinrandomhouse – see previous post
5. ‘Twas the Nightshift before Christmas’ by @amateuradam published by @picador – stocking filler sequel by the hilarious ex doctor Adam Kay who once again regales us with amusing and heartfelt anecdotes from NHS Christmas shifts.
6. ‘Elizabeth I’ by Helen Castor published by @penguinbooks – a short but detailed biography of one of Britain’s greatest monarchs.
7. ‘A Woman is No Man’ by Etaf Rum published by @harperbooks – a traumatic and shocking tale of life of traditional, Arabic women and their gruelling lives dictated by men.
Can’t pick a favourite but there’s something for everyone in this list ❤️📚
