Last week was very busy! I wish that I had got more reading done, but whatever. I got swept up in the #NormalPeopleLove that was occurring on social media and decided to read Normal People by Sally Rooney. (A review will appear later this week).
I received one book in the post and bought two. All very different, as you’ll see:
Half Moon Lake by Kirsten Alexander (released 8th January 2019) was a prize from Penguin Random House. Inspired by a true story, the novel is about a young boy who disappears in the early 1900s. But when he reappears in the company of a tramp, questions are raised as to his identity. Tensions are further raised when two mothers say he is their son.
The Grand Tour A-Z of the Car is sure to have at least a few laughs. It is all you needed to know about cars in succinct fashion, with pictures and a few dodgy facts.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood is sure to need no introduction, particularly after the recent TV series. I haven’t read the book and I like dystopian fiction, so I thought I should fix that!
