Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 1/3/21

Happy autumn/spring. It’s still feeling rather summery as I write this. It might have been summery over the last week, I was honestly too busy to notice.

I had two books arrive in the mail last week and I managed to get a couple of hours of shopping in too:

The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris (available 1st June) arrived thanks to Bloomsbury. Nella is the only Black employee at Wagner Books and she’s sick of the micro-aggressions and feeling isolated. Then Hazel starts working next to her. At first, it’s great until events turn Nella into the most hated person in the office and threatening notes are left on her desk….

You Love Me by Caroline Kepnes (available 7th April) arrived from Simon & Schuster. Joe is back and this time he wants to start a family on an island no less. Mary Kay, the local librarian, is his target. But she is too busy for Joe. Although that’s never stopped him…surely Mary Kay will do the right thing?

Four Winds by Kristin Hannah is set in 1930s Texas, the era of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Elsa’s husband has died and she must decide whether to leave for California and a better life, or stay and fight for the land she loves.

The Road to Conscious Machines by Michael Wooldridge is the story of artificial intelligence (AI). No, machines don’t have self-awareness but that fear takes over what they can do. What the risks and the benefits are of this technology are discussed.

  1. Glad to see books are arriving in mailboxes once more. I got my first one in a while just yesterday. But it’s a book I’m already reading on Kindle.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
