@24in48 #24in48 #hour12challenge the book that changed my outlook was this one. I read this book while I was at university and it changed how I viewed my studies and in a way humanised my lecturers who at times seemed so untouchable

Ahhh look at all the wonderful autumn gifts @Kalalalatja gave me for #halloweengoespostal!

The socks look so cosy and I love chocolate! Also even more importantly super excited about the books! Underground Railroad has been one of my must reads this year and I really wanted to read We Have Always Lived in the Castle before the film came out!

As always massive thanks to @BookishMarginalia !

batsy I just read Castle, I loved it! Great gifts 😍 2y
Kalalalatja Yay, so glad you like what I picked out for you! Enjoy 👍 2y
cocomass What a great box! Underground Railroad is excellent 👌🏽 2y

I enjoyed the book, reading about how the author explored her heritage and what it was like growing up black in Glasgow in the 80s.

So turns out renovating a flat really cuts into your reading time!
But I did love this book, I have a scientific background and have used cells in culture in labs. It's odd because I never thought of them as coming from a person, they were just annoying little things in a dish that wouldn't do what I wanted! But this book showed me that there are really people who can be affected by it!

I enjoyed reading this book and the insights gained from a dr who was working in such conditions. Also made me realise how much I take for granted with regards to my medical care and and the options I have.

RadicalReader @funkyfergie thought this title was absolutely astounding because of how ironic it is 2y

I did enjoy this book but felt sections of it were a bit dry and repetitive. It was however unbiased and showed the massive growth of Google in such a small amount of time and the consequences to the companies which got left behind.

Besides, if you have to go around digging up graves to prove then you've probably already lost it.

RadicalReader @funkyfergie absolutely gripping title of a book sounds phenomenal showing the most peculiar of stories can make such a beautiful book because they're centered around unusual plots 2y
