I love this cover! Up next because I don‘t have that many more days before my loan ends, and I‘ll need to return it. #CoverCrush

This is an interesting style I had not expected in a sci-fi book. So far, there is an arc ship, three scientists and a lot of missing people...

slategreyskies I‘ve got a serious #CoverCrush on this one. I‘d check it out based on the cover alone. 📚 2mo

Peri menopausal women raise up!! 🙌🏻🙋🏻‍♀️🙌🏻 I am loving these strong middle aged female characters and Grace is no exception. Fed up, she leaves her car and takes off across London on foot to her daughter Sophie‘s 16th birthday. Two other timelines follow recent events that made her daughter angry and the arc of her relationship with her ex-husband and Sophie‘s childhood. Strong pick! Nice job @AardvarkBookClub 🫶🏻

Cinfhen Sounds fun! I‘ll look for the audio 😍 10mo

The cover design basically insisted I read this book. I love the style and it‘s such a compact little book, just like a diary. Which this is: a fictional diary of a fictional pregnancy conceived by a young Japanese working woman. She‘s tired of her coworkers taking advantage of her and the ever present sexism. So she uses her female body to her advantage. Told in weekly chapters, as she progresses in her pregnancy. Strange but irresistible!

BarbaraBB Looks so good! Definitely stacking #covercrush 10mo
Megabooks Agreed! 10mo

While I thought the writing was great, I did find the story itself slow. I don‘t think having Nathaniel Hawthorne be a part of the plot was essential. He could have been any man and Isobel‘s story would have been the same.

Cinfhen Totally agree! Book was a bit of a disappointment 10mo
Kristy_K @Cinfhen If it wasn‘t for the pretty cover and promise of a fictionalized account of an author‘s inspiration, I don‘t think I would have been picked this up. So kudos for its marketing at least! 10mo

My haul from today‘s #bookshopcrawl in Liverpool.

The tagged and Prophet Song are both from Waterstones, even though Prophet Song isn‘t supposed to be published until next Thursday. The Peter May is from Oxfam, for hubby.

Bottom left and right are gifts from @Oryx and @TrishB 😘😘, from Dead Ink (my favourite shop of the day!) and finally the Aoyama is a complete #covercrush from News From Nowhere.

Deblovestoread Lovely haul. 11mo

squirrelbrain It does sound rather weird doesn‘t it? @batsy 11mo
squirrelbrain @LeahBergen do I hear the faint call of a #buddyread ?! 11mo

Half a day‘s shopping so far! Having a great day with Trish and Emma.

Can you guess who has bought which book?!

Caroline2 Hmm bottom two Trish? Top yellow one Emma? Not sure on the others. 🤔 11mo
JamieArc I‘m really looking forward to What You Are Looking For… Sounds like you all are having a great day! 11mo
julesG Emma bought the one on the top. I'd say Trish the two at the bottom. The others might be Helen's, but could easily be anyone else's. 11mo
