Books and eBooks
The Best Kind of People by Zoe Whittall
I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I first heard about it so I was delighted when a lovely blogger offered to send me her copy. I hope to read this in the coming weeks after non-fiction November.
Illness as a Metaphor & AIDS as its Metaphors by Susan Sontag
I’ve wanted to read this book for the longest time so I finally decided to buy it this week. I think I may add it to my Non-Fiction November TBR. as I really want to read it now.
They Can’t Kill Us All: The Story of Black Lives Matter by Wesley Lowery
This is another book I’ve had on my wish list for a while now and decided to buy it this week. I may add this on to my Non-Fiction November stack too!
The Evil Beneath by A. J. Waines
I’m such a fan of A. J. Waines (see my reviews of Lost in the Lake and Perfect Bones) so when I saw her tweet that this book was free I immediately downloaded it. I’ve somehow missed reading this book before now so I’m looking forward to getting to it.
Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drugs Company that Addicted America by Beth Macy
I’ve wanted to read this book for ages and I got the ebook a while ago but then spotted that I could add the audio to it so I did that this week. I’m really keen to read this one as it’s a subject that I’m really interested in so I don’t think I’ll be too long getting to this!
The 24-Hour Cafe by Libby Page
I loved Libby Page’s previous novel The Lido was so thrilled to receive a copy of this book. I’m going to try and hold off reading it until the new year but I’m really keen to read it soon.
All the Water in the World by Karen Raney
I downloaded this ARC from NetGalley on the Read Now section entirely on a whim as I was intrigued by the premise. I hope it’s as good as it sounds.
The Holdout by Graham Moore
I requested this one on NetGalley as I loved the idea of a book set around a jury and I’m so thrilled that I got approved to read it this week!

I’m really excited for The 24 Hour Cafe as well as I loved Tge Lido as well!
It sounds so good, doesn’t it? 🙂
All of these are new to me. Thanks for sharing them:)
Thank you 🙂
Such a nice lot of books, Hayley, as always! And how interesting that several of them are nonfiction. I really ought to get back to reading more nonfiction than I do…
Thank you! I’m really enjoying reading non-fiction at the moment and can’t resist adding more non-fiction books to my TBR.
Oooh! Intrigued by the Sontag. I so want to read more of her!
It’s been on my wish list for absolutely ages so I’m glad to finally own a copy. I hope to read it soon as I love her writing and I’m fascinated by the themes in this one.
I’ve been wanting to read Dopestick. Hopefully you enjoy. 🙂
Thank you 🙂 I hope you get a chance to read it soon too.
I’ve had the funny thing of a couple of books I have worked on coming in (I’m a transcriber, so I work with people’s ghostwriter, taking down their interviews so they can write the book) and I also got a re-copy of a book I had but inexplicably lost (one of my Iris Murdochs!). I did acquire a copy of “An American Marriage” from a friend so that’s a properly new one. I didn’t know Libby Page had done a new one – it’s not on NetGalley that I can find, but I’ll put it on my wishlist.
Great selection – I think you’re all set for a while! Happy reading – I’d like to read The Best Kind of People.
Thank you, I seem to have lost all restraint when it comes to buying books just recently. They’ll keep me busy! 🙂
You have some great books coming up here. Enjoy them all.
Thank you 🙂
Susan Sontag is someone I believe I ought to read but struggle to somehow. Fascinating list.
Thank you 🙂 I’m really keen to get to this book by Susan Sontag, it sounds so good. I want to read all of her work.
