Not the End of the World
Not the End of the World | Kate Atkinson
Arthur is a precocious eight-year-old boy whose mother is a B-list celebrity more concerned with the state of her bank account than with her son's development. Then an enigmatic young nanny named Missy introduces him to a world he never knew existed.

Mehso-so

Another short story collection finished this week… another mixed bag of reactions! I disliked the first few stories, loved several in the middle, and am on the fence about the rest. I did love the little connections between the stories as well as the hints of magical realism, which become more pronounced as the stories progress. This was my August #DoubleSpin.

*not the tagged book this isn't on litsy*
A very short story but as per usual Atkinson captivates with her wonderfully witty writing. Took a bit of an unexpected (!) turn st the end but still enjoyable.

This isn't on the database. It's an amazon original and very,very short. I've read a page and laughed twice. Good realiable Atkinson 😅

Short stories that weave together in a thrilling and unexpected way.

This can count as #ShortStories and #QuickReads because every story is connected, so you keep reading to figure out where certain characters will show up next. #booktober

The cover was too hard to resist (pic doesn't do it justice). I rarely have time to browse the stacks @ the library since I have two little ones. So, unless I've reserved it online, most library books are impulse grabs!! 📚😁

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Impulse grabs are so fun, though! 6y
Tanner Oooh, pretty! 6y
