The Woman in the Photograph | Stephanie Butland

Pickpick

This book was really genuinely moving, I read it in one day. The protagonist is a young girl who makes a feminist friend and calls off her engagement to focus on her career which is a refreshing standpoint and I thought she was a really likeable character. The narrative skips back and forth to her as an older woman from the start of her career which makes for an interesting narrative. An ‘Every woman should read this‘ sort of book.

squirrelbrain I loved this one too! 💕 3mo
ReadUntilYourEyesAreRed @squirrelbrain yes!! Best Readers First book I‘ve had 💓 3mo

The Bees: A Novel | Laline Paull

I wouldn‘t usually reach for this sort of fantasy novel but this is such an immersive, and imaginative read I would recommend it to any one who likes dystopian fiction. Strangely you immediately connect to the heroine my only critique would be the plot is a little jumpy, but I enjoyed the style of writing. I also spent ten minutes getting a picture of my copy next to this cute little bee in the corner 🐝 😂😂

squirrelbrain Love that you spent so long waiting for a 🐝- the things we‘ll do for a great Litsy pic! 🤣 3mo

Set in Singapore, this book is told from the perspective of three women across their lives. Age 16 Szu is lonely as her ex-actress mother ignores her. Amisa, Szu‘s mother tells the story of her growing up and then Szu‘s only friend Circe 17 years later in 2020 is struggling through her divorce. A very well written novel of haunting memories, growing up and friendship.

Read this in one go yesterday, it‘s incredible. Sort of like The Great Gatsby meets You by Caroline Kepnes, completely over the top and compelling critique of the upper class. Also a must read for anyone who loves books based in New York! @squirrelbrain

squirrelbrain Lovely pic! Hope you‘re having a fab time... 😘 And, yes I may need to borrow this when you get home..! 😁 6mo

The Mars Room: A Novel | Rachel Kushner

Mehso-so

I loved this book although the change of perspectives was almost a bit unnecessary, I wish it had followed Romy all the way through in a way as Doc didn‘t add a lot. Overall all a very good read ,comes across as almost non-fiction. P.S. lovely to get back to Litsy for summer hot tub reads after the busy exam season :)

The Kite Runner: Rejacketed | Khaled Hosseini

Completely heart-rending story and one of the most immersive books I‘ve read in a while. Definitely want to read more from Hosseini, has anyone read “A Thousand Splendid Suns”?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️☕️

TrishB A Thousand Splendid Suns is even better 👍🏻 makes you cry. 14mo
Kaye I liked the both. It‘s hard to say which I liked more. I think the second one had characters a female could relate to more so it might be a bit better in that area. Both excellent 14mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz One of my all time favs 14mo
squirrelbrain A Thousand Splendid Suns is even more harrowing, I found.... 14mo
ReadUntilYourEyesAreRed Oo I think I might have to risk it and hope I don‘t cry too much! Thanks guys :) x 14mo

This book is crazy but I loved it, keep reading dystopian/ speculative fiction at the moment :):) “Words can be like x-rays if you use them properly”
