What a lovely little book..
I wasn‘t sure I‘d like the narrative style at first. But a few pages in I was in love with this story and all the characters 💜

There are moments in this book where I feel the world has moved forward so much and I feel so grateful. Then there are moments when I realise nothing has changed at all.. #thewomensroom #femenist #timeforchange

Hannah_11 I found it in a charity shop a few weeks ago. So glad I did. I‘m obsessed with it!! @BarbaraBB (edited) 3mo

If anyone ever needs a reminder of why the NHS is so brilliant. Read this! It made me laugh, it made me cry. A truly honest account of what it takes to be a nurse! #nurse #nhs #work #proud

I never like giving bad reviews.. I really enjoyed reading this. It‘s such a unique narrative and I became immersed in the characters of the book. Which made the ending even more of a disappointment. Great storytelling. Just not such a great story!

How have I only just found this book!?! Atwood at her best yet again, the story telling is so powerful! Details perfectly how events from childhood can shape the rest of your life. Even if you never realised it. Love love love!! #maragretatwood #catseye

Reservoir 13 | Jon McGregor

This is an extraordinarily ordinary book. I loved the description and being able to completely be immersed in the village life. However, it is not a fast paced exciting book and the ending had me feeling a bit let down. Mcgregor has an incredibly unique writing style but not my favourite...

“My cocoon becomes less oppressive, and my mind takes flight like a butterfly” 🦋
I‘m so in awe of this book. Written entirely through blinking by a man with ‘locked-in syndrome‘ describing what it‘s like to live in his condition. A short and at times witty book. Definite must read!!!

I was really intrigued by this book. Before reading I had no idea what it was about. At times I loved it and at times I thought it was just downright weird. Still can't decide wether I like it or not however I have respect for the author and her ideas. A great femenist novel I thought it just went a bit too far... #thepower
