York is looking super-beautiful and Autumnal today. Shame quite a bit of it is under water, but look at those colours 💛💚🧡

Dont often read YA, but have heard nothing but good things about this book... read the opening in the pancake house this week - very hard-hitting and powerful opening.

This is one of my favourites.

I'm not saying I bought books but..... OH I ADMIT IT I CAVED AND BOUGHT ALL THE BOOKS.....❤❤❤

The one I'm looking forward to the most is Call me by your name. I saw the film at the cinema (well, 98% of the film- there was a power cut at a critical moment) and hear there's a sequel coming soon!

Great Expectations | Charles Dickens
post image

Nearly there!

Great Expectations is both stunningly emotive and a complete slog. One minute I'm crying real tears in a way that I rarely do with modern novels, the next I'm considering a rage quit out of sheer frustration.

A difficult book to chew for the mostpart (I've been reading it for months), and yet with some truly stunning plotpoints and dramatic scenes!

Liatrek Exactly how I feel 😊I started this at the beginning of the year and still haven‘t finished. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead There are some amazing moments.... a twist I didn't see coming, some great characters that you feel for.... so many words though! I've read some sentences 5 times and still wasn't sure what he was trying to say 😂😂 1mo

Convenience Store Woman | Sayaka Murata
post image

So far this is a funny and slightly heartbreaking tale of one woman's struggle to conform to societies expectations just to get the people around her off her case so that she can be at peace in the convenience store she loves so much.

In some ways it reminds me a bit of a Japanese Eleanor Oliphant.

Roadside Picnic | Arkady Strugatsky, Boris Strugatsky
post image

Currently reading Roadside Picnic for Sci Fi Book Club. It's a strange book; I seem to only get the flavour of what I'm reading after each chapter.

It seems to be telling me a story without me realising it. If you like your sci fi bleak and devoid of exposition, this could be a winner!

RaeLovesToRead Thank you 😊 1mo
RaeLovesToRead I'm still trying to figure out how it all works! ☺ 1mo
