Big Sky | Kate Atkinson

It might not quite be 4.00 p.m. yet, but this has felt like a long hard day in the Hideous Concrete Fortress, especially when there is a book like that calling out to be read on the journey home. #fridayreads #kateatkinson #bigsky #book #fictiin #jacksonbrodie #books #hideousconcretefortress #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookish #booklove #dauntbooks #nookcommunity #nearlyhometime

Another highly entertaining and exceedingly complex spy story from Chris Pavone, which sees Kate Moore, one of the main protagonists from his first novel, Expats, returning to espionage work.

This is the fiftieth book I have read in 2019. An intriguing mix of science fiction and alternative history it tells of Charlie Friend‘s experiences when he buys Adam, a highly elaborate lifelike Android. Set in a very different 1982 in which Britain has just lost the Falklands War.

You don‘t mind paying, do you?‘ line yet again! #dauntbooks #hooklineandsinker #i💙catherine #book #books #booksbooksbooks #bookcommunity #booknerd #booklove #bookphotography #dauntbooksbag #robertmenasse #hannajameson #charlottebingham #danrichards #maxporter #craigtaylor #enigmavariations #thecapital #thelast #lanny #guardianbooks

Old Baggage | Lissa Evans

What a splendid novel! Great characters, a marvellous story and beautiful prose. I am facing that crushing dilemma that attends great books: I am eager to finish it to see how the story is resolved, but am also enjoying it so much that I don‘t want it to end. #lissaevans #oldbaggage #guardianbooks #book #books #bookstagram #bookish #booksbooksbooks #booknerd #bookworm #bookcommunity #bookphotography #tetherdown #dauntbooks #currentlyreading
