I loved The Peripheral for its imaginative ideas and this sequel explores them further. It feels very much like a “middle book“ but is a pick all the same.

This is my first book finished for the #AwesomeAugust readathon and my #2020 selection for the #192025 challenge. It's also my #DoubleSpin book for the month.

4.75 ⭐

Not sure if it was me (tired easily atm), or the book but for some parts I kept drifting off. However, I did learn about H D, Jane Harrison & Eileen Power so still a pick.

Do you think I could use it for #nonpatriarchalsociety #pop22 #booked2022? Some of the women did get married but the emphasis is very much 'A Room of One's Own'. @Cinfhen @squirrelbrain @Kalalalatja @Cortg @Laughterhp @Megabooks @KarenUK

Cinfhen Yes!!! I think that‘s a clever choice 🤓 4mo

39/22 This was a quick, easy listen that I picked up as a pallet cleanser. It did a pretty good job of keeping me guessing but I would say the character development was a little lacking to make it really good. One thing I will say is that I finished it a couple of days ago, and so immediately forgot everything about it that I had to go read a synopsis before I could remember the plot 😬! #192025 #2020 #roadtripusa2022 #massachusetts

When he is just 7 years old, the army kills Abdul‘s entire family and burns his home in Darfur. He flees to a refugee camp in #Chad. Via Lybia (another war) he manages to cross the Mediterranean and make it to England, a young boy with PTSD, all alone in the world. Today he is a British citizen and jockey of royal horses. Like his journey, his story is hard & emotional.

Librarybelle What a harrowing journey 8mo
Cinfhen This was an emotional read but also hopeful @Librarybelle ♥️ 8mo
BarbaraBB @Librarybelle You can say so. And so many young Africans who try to do the same don‘t succeed. This testimony feels really important 💔 8mo
Megabooks Wow. That does sound very emotional. 8mo
Suet624 Wow. 8mo

Oh how I loved this one! I totally agree with @Cinfhen ‘s review that this has Burial Rites vibes - it has an isolated atmosphere with dark undertones. And the writing style is brilliant. Full of storms and witches and women struggling to make it on their own in early 1600s Norway, this novel captured my interest right away. I just had to finish it this morning (and household chores can wait!). #LiteraryCrew #BuddyRead ⬇️⬇️⬇️

This was a slow, nice, heartwarming book about the families you create throughout your life (even when you are an 85 year old curmudgeon). I loved the characters and the penguins. #19822022 #2020 @Librarybelle

It is true, our world is full of wonders and this book highlights a few miracles from the animal and plant world, the author connects them all to her own memories and sensations, but unfortunately, these links sometimes felt very forced and inorganic … otherwise - this is a nice collection of stories that can carry you in your own memory lane.

I really enjoyed reading this 2020 photography review from #NatGeo. They rounded up some of their best 2020 photos and told the stories not only of people around the world, but of the photographers themselves and how they navigated the pandemic and other events of the year. #NonFiction #Magazine #Photography #2020

One of the best reads of #2020! Certain books lingers in your mind for long after you finish it and creates an impact in your heart. This is one such gem!

In all fairness, he was my childhood crush; however, what an excellent attitude he has towards life dealing with Parkinson‘s and aging in general. This read gives a new perspective on #adversity and optimism. The audiobook even includes a chapter on the ill-fated year #2020 .
