Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 28/11/22

Happy Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday. If you partook, I hope you got what you wanted and had fun. (I did enjoy the video games sale a bit too much, unfortunately sales on books were a little light on locally).

You Don’t Know What War Is by Yeva Skalietska arrived thanks to Bloomsbury. It’s a true story, of Yeva (a 12-year-old girl) who is forced to leave her home in Kharkiv, Ukraine due to war earlier this year. She travels with her granny to Dublin in this diary, supplemented with maps, news headlines and messages from friends.

A Very Nice Girl by Imogen Crimp is about Anna, struggling to afford London life singing in a bar. It’s here she meets Max, who is in the middle of a divorce. Over the course of the winter, both Max and her career demand her time – which one will win out?

The Matter of Everything by Suzie Sheehyis non-fiction, about 12 experiments mainly relating to physics that changed the world. Think X-rays, microwaves and smartphone chips.

Animal by Lisa Taddeo finds Joan leaving New York after experiencing violence and driving to California to find the person who can help her unravel her past.
