So it’s nearly spring! My nose is feeling it but the wildflowers look great. I didn’t get any books in the mail this week, but I did buy some!
I took advantage of Dymocks’ 2 for $40 sale on non-fiction, and as you can see, my interest in American politics and the economy continues. Unbelievable by Katy Tur is her account of reporting on Trump’s presidential race. She went to 40 states of America, following him for a year and a half. It was an eye opening experience.
Janesville: An American Story by Amy Goldstein is about an industrial town in America and what happens when the local factory closes. But the community has a can-do attitude and what happens next is fascinating.
I also bought two new releases. Vox by Christina Dalcher satisfies my appetite for dystopian feminist fiction. Jean is limited to just 100 words a day but when a new government comes to power, everything changes. Women lose their jobs and passports. Bank accounts are frozen and girls aren’t worth educating. But Jean is about to fight back…
The Plus One by Sophie Money-Coutts looks like a fun read. Polly Spence is single and a plus one for her best friend’s wedding looks unlikely as she continues in her job writing about royal babies. But yeah, she’s okay. Her New Year’s resolution is to get it together, but when she meets Jasper she knows he’s not the one or even a plus one so she will stay tough. Really.
