Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 30/1/23

A bit of a mixed up week with a public holiday in the middle. There’s a good mixture of fun and serious books below:

Loathe to Love You by Ali Hazelwood is a collection of three novellas about female scientists and enemies to lovers in a number of different settings – roommate from hell, elevator and Arctic research station.

How to Walk Away by Katherine Center starts with Maggie on the cusp of the happiest time of her life – but everything changes dramatically on one day. Her new life is very different and nothing like she expected but could it be more than she ever hoped for?

How the World Really Works by Vaclav Smil covers the major topics for the world’s survival and prosperity using science and dispelling misinformation.

Writing from Ukraine edited by Mark Andryczyk is a collection of fiction, poetry and essays from Ukrainian writers since 1965. It’s varied, from poetry about Robbie Williams to some very Ukrainian humour.

  1. Great haul! I have Ali Hazelwood’s novellas on my ereader but I’ve yet to read them. I have enjoyed both of her books so far. Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. You’ve really got me intrigued about the Ukrainian writing by mentioning both their humour and a poem about Robbie Williams, like… what? So I might need to keep a look out for this collection or similar ones! Loathe to Love you also sounds like a really fun collection, I always love any romance and similar set in an academic/scientific setting, makes for great puns I think! I hope you enjoy all of these and have a lovely week 🙂
