The Survivors | Jane Harper
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Jane Harper had done it again. A slow burning mystery with an atmospheric and moody sense of place, well written characters and enough red herrings to keep you guessing. You may need a bit of patience to get through the beginning- but the payoff is well worth it.⁣

Little: A Novel | Edward Carey
post image
Mehso-so

A largely fictionalized account of the early life of Madam Tussauds, her experience in Paris , Versailles and a tumultuous ride through the French Revolution. ⁣

This was on my most anticipated list of 2018, and I think it fell victim to my unrealistic high expectations. Has that ever happened to you? Which book could never live up to your expectations? ⁣

CaitlinR I enjoyed Little, but I know what you mean about high expectations. 1y

This book needs more love ❤️ It is beautiful and heartbreaking and transformative and powerful and fun and .... I could keep going ... or you could pick it up and read about the courage of a boy named Sam as he transforms into the person he was truly meant to be. Be prepared to fall in love with a fabulous cast of characters along the way. ⁣

This is a fairytale, an odyssey, an adventure. ⁣

During WWII in Darwin, through the mysterious and mythical Australian top end comes the thrilling and magical tale of Molly Hook, who goes on a journey (with the help of a few friends and Sky gifts) to beg an ancient Indigenous sorcerer to lift a curse that has turned her heart to stone. ⁣
⁣A story that will enchant and delight even the most jaded reader. Have an adventure and discover pure gold.⁣

It had gore and humour and surprises - and it touches on some very important social issues of racism, sexism and a housewife's role in society (which is mostly overlooked and belittled). Grady Hendrix said he wanted to pay homage to the wives and mothers who fight everyday for their families and their communities without any appreciation or recognition. ⁣

A Thousand Ships | Natalie Haynes
post image
Pickpick

“And I have sung of the women, the women in the shadows. I have sung of the forgotten, the ignored, the untold...”

Haynes has written an extraordinary retelling of The Iliad and The Odyssey from the perspective of the much overlooked women. Their voices were brave and moving and funny and intelligent. (Penelope was one of my favourite). This is definitely one of my most loved books of the year so far. Everyone should read it. ⁣

I was warned that you either love this or hate it. I was not thrilled with the ending, but can‘t stop thinking about the eerie storytelling and creepy atmosphere. It‘s one of those books where you feel deeply unsettled while reading it - but can‘t explain why. So - I guess - I‘m sitting in the ‘liked it‘ camp. What did you think? And are you excited for the netflix adaptation? ⁣

The Safe Place | Anna Downes
post image
Pickpick

Emily is offered a dream job working for a wealthy family on their estate in France. She quickly befriends the glamorous and beguiling Nina.
⁣Downes weaves gorgeous descriptions of the French peninsular with ominous and mysterious undertones creeping through at unexpected moments. There's sexual chemistry, a sinister caretaker, a troubled child and a house with secret rooms and no escape. All elements that make a fun and twisty read.

Why is nobody talking about this book? It‘s a tremendous romp through England in the 1660‘s (or there about) and includes a girl named H, the plague, some dastardly villains, the great fire of London, a few brothels, a cross dressing sailor, the odd murder and delightful array of colourful characters. Thoroughly enjoyable and escapist.⁣

#bookreview #belowdeck ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫⁣

This book is powerful, and I think it would have been even more powerful if it had stuck to one main idea. Instead of focusing exclusively on sexual abuse and its ramifications (major trigger warnings) it also tried to be a book about art, race relations and climate change. And it felt a little scattered. The writing was poetic and it's message was important - but it just needed more focus.⁣

I knew this book hit a nerve when I started feeling uncomfortable reading it. When I heard my own thoughts, my own insecurities given voice. Why I never feel good enough, why I‘m forever trying to lose weight, why I feel ‘less than‘ when I see images of beautiful people living beautiful lives. ⁣
⁣More in comments ⬇️

Tashreads I‘ve had three kids - I will never be thin and yet I feel a failure because of it. I don‘t see my body as given birth to three miracles- I see a saggy belly, stretch marks and softness. The self loathing is palpable. And I‘m not alone. When I‘m with a group of my female friends, how often do we turn the conversation to diets, to work-outs, to body image and aging. I‘m sick of it. I‘m so so sick of it. 2y
Tashreads We are worth more than our clothes size. There is more to us than our bodies.

Atwood has done it again! She has created a truly terrifying near future. One with sexbots, unauthorised organ harvesting and neurological sex slavery. But ultimately, this is about choices. What happens when your right to choose is taken away from you? And is it better to be free or secure? ⁣I have no idea what this has such low ratings. Yes, all the characters are deplorable and the plot is shocking, but it is such a thought provoking book.

This was the most exquisitely written novel. Magical, whimsical, picturesque. I adored the stories within stories and quirky characters. ⁣But I still can't tell you what actually happened?? Maybe I wasn't concentrating enough. Am I the only one who feels this way? If someone asked me how it ended, I‘d shrug and say "haven't the foggiest - but I loved the cherry blossom forest and confetti ocean."⁣
