It’s been a busy week, with not a lot of time for reading (particularly due to the Pokemon GO Fest on the weekend). I think this week I’ll get stuck instead at least one of these:
Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley (available tomorrow) was thanks to Bloomsbury. Kiara is just trying to keep her family safe and fed when she falls into nightcrawling, the job she never wanted but needs. But then her name appears as a key witness in a scandal within the local police department…
Ghost Lover by Lisa Taddeo (available 15th June) was also from Bloomsbury. It’s a collection of short stories, including the dating service Ghost Lover, texting your crush so you don’t have to. It’s about trying to win the heart of the guest of honour at a function and the search for a man called John Deere.
Happy-Go-Lucky by David Sedaris arrived thanks to Hachette. It’s about Sedaris’ life after COVID-19 hits – no more touring but a lot of walking and adjusting to the new normal (including offering to fix a stranger’s teeth).
These Impossible Things by Salma El-Wardany (available 14th June) was also from Hachette. It’s about three British Muslim women whose friendship changes after one night. Without each other’s support, nothing seems to go right.
The Mutual Friend by Carter Bays (also available 14th June from Hachette) has Alice wanting a summer of no distractions, just sitting her final exam. But her roommate wants to get her into trouble, her brother wants to search for the meaning of life and Alice can’t put down her phone. Oh, and then there’s love…
