Good. Enjoyed the twist and turns this book took me on even though you are left hanging on a crucial question at the end it didn't hamper my enjoyment of the story overall. Recommend 📚📖

Opening line: "Outside the entrance of the Mariabronn cloister, whose rounded arch rested on slim double columns, a chestnut tree stood stood close to the road." #narcissusandgoldmund #hermannhesse #picador #bookish #bookcover #firstline #bookgnome #book

If like me, you have ever wondered what life in a refugee camp is like, then please pick up this book, now out in an updated paperback edition. The Dadaab Refugee Camp in northern Kenya is home to half a million people. This book looks at the lives of nine of its residents. Timely and necessary. #diversereads #ReadOutsidetheLines #refugees #Picador

Tamra Highly recommend. In the same vein, What's the What about the lost boys is a must read. 3y

Oryx My partner is an immunologist AND it's his birthday next week. That's one pressie sorted then! 🎈 3y
CouronneDhiver I'm excited to get my hands on this... so interesting (Im a fan of the dark and twisty, according to some) Sounds similar to the movie "Contagion" 3y
mischa I read it last year - it was excellent. At one stage I was sitting in an airport lounge reading it when the person behind me coughed. I had a bit of a moment. 😝 Then the next day I realised I had bronchitis. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 3y
mjdowens I read The Hot Zone years ago. It scared me so much I actually had to get rid of the book so I never had to look at it again 3y
Handmade_Redhead This is on my tbr and has been yelling at me lately. 3y
pH7 Sounds right up my alley! Interested to hear your thoughts on it. 3y
kammartinez It is very scary, yes, but a very important and enlightening read, considering the state of our world today. It also has a pretty reassuring message about how we can go forward in a world of pandemics, so it does end on a somewhat-uplifting note :). 3y

Picked up this book today because it's about the disruptive and revolutionary ways technology is changing the ways we relate and communicate. Seems especially pertinent! #Picador

Mimi28 I've always been bad at communicating, but I still see the point in this book. My handwriting is horrible. I always have to use a calculator. I have tendinitis in my thumb and I have frequent headaches mostly from looking at my phone and my posture while on my phone. It's quite sad. Septimus is adorable 😻😻Happy Valentine's Day!! 3y
BookishMarginalia @Mimi28 Hug💜 - #Septimus sends his love! Happy Valentine's! 3y
Zelma That might be a good non-fiction companion to the novel I just finished. 3y

"From a decade of devouring novels, Olive knew charming men were deadly. [...] Be Vigilant and Prize Your Virginity was a subtitle many of these stories could have taken, most of them written by men. Olive knew all this and she didn't care. She didn't give a damn."
