Current Reads

True Crime Story by Joseph Knox

This is such an intriguing book, I’m so keen to keep reading to see where it goes next!

All the Young Men by Ruth Coker Burks

This is an incredible memoir and Ruth is such an amazing woman. I hope to read more of it this week.

Recent Reads

Don’t Touch My Hair by Emma Dabiri

I borrowed the audio book of this from the library and I found it such a fascinating book from which I learnt a lot that I didn’t know. I’d quite like to buy a kindle copy of this one so that I can read it again in the future.

Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason

This is a stunning book – it’s both very moving and very funny, it captures what it’s like to live with a mental illness so well. I recommend it.

What I Might Read Next

Passenger List by John Dryden

This is How We Are Human by Louise Beech

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

As is now the norm for me I’m planning on reading the next book on my NetGalley shelf which is Passenger List. I also would like to read This is How We Are Human as it’s for a forthcoming blog tour and I just know I’m going to adore it. The final book is off my own TBR and is one that I’m keen to read while I’m in the middle of a post-lockdown clear out in my home.

  1. Hello Hayley. I just had to comment here. I began a book this morning – The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker – which was recommended here on WordPress. I can’t put it down; I LOVE it! Thanks to whoever reviewed it. I often write down books I find here but I can never remember who reviewed which!

  2. Don’t Touch My Hair is excellent, isn’t it. There was a TV programme she did that we’ve shamefully recorded but have yet to watch.

    I am currently reading Ruby Ferguson’s charming “Apricot Sky” although it’s two books in one, a children’s adventure and a light love story, and William Kamkwaba and Bryan Mealer’s The Boy who Harnessed the Wind, a lovely nonfiction book about a young inventor in Malawi. Next up will be some more 20 Books of Summer and NetGalley reads but not sure which ones quite yet.

  3. Passenger List sounds great and I can’t wait to read This Is How We Are Human! Knowing Louise Beech I already feel it in my bones that I’m going to love it. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! xx

  4. All the Young Men sounds a fascinating though maybe harrowing (?) book?
    I’m currently reading Bitter Fruit by Achmat Dangor which is set in post Apartheid South Africa. It’s on my 20booksofsummer list
