This is a great, diverse collection of Muslim women's voices. The main recurring themes seem to be the danger of conflating culture and religion, and of seeing Islam as a homogenous group, and the work that mainstream feminism needs to do to be more inclusive.

This is a remarkable story, told with passion and respect for what the White Rose movement did. Their bravery and strength of character was amazing and you can't help but question whether you could have shown anything like their courage. It's also a warning from history - people didn't oppose Hitler in the early days of the Nazi movement because they didn't take him seriously and thought he was just a beer hall agitator. Never stop fighting Nazis.

TrishB Stacked for now! Waiting for a cheaper edition! 5d

This is brilliant. A lovely combination of beautiful imagery and down to earth realism. A real mixed bag of North Manchester civic pride, the north west countryside, human relationships and psychology. Loved it.

Heideschrampf @Cinfhen that's a must watch! The film is one of the best literary adaptation i've seen. The book (and it's pre/sequels) are brilliant in themselves, but colour and music and camera just provide the material with the sensory overload it needs! 2w
rretzler Never read the book, but loved the movie! Isn‘t there a sequel now (to the movie?) I need to read the books someday. 2w

This was an interesting, if not especially original, read. A lot of the advice is fairly common sense (some of it a little trite) but it does bear repeating. It's an interesting reflection on modern life, and obviously I enjoyed the bit about how good reading is for you ("reading is love in action").

CarolynM I'm going to remember that quote! 🙂 2w

arlenefinnigan @CorLie the author has a radio show called Hannah's Bookshelf on North Manchester FM, saw that she'd published some poetry from looking her up on social media and found it on kindle. 2w

Well this was strangely compelling. I started off thinking this book was darkly funny and the protagonist was amusingly misanthropic, but it became more claustrophobic and full of despair as it went on. Millie is hopeless at being an adult and the chapter when she went back to visit her parents was sweet and sad.

Pruzy Sounds exactly like what I need right now 👌 2w
