Wrap Up: October and November 2020

Wrap Up Floral

Hello everyone! Here in the UK, our second lockdown ended last week and I’m happy that my local library has reopened again. It’s a comforting place to visit and picking your next book from the shelves really is therapeutic. Whilst the library was closed last month, I was thankfully able to borrow some books from their online catalogue. So without further adieu, here is my extended wrap up for October and November.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I listened to the audiobook which is well narrated by the author. Prior to checking this out, I knew very little about Native American Indians and it’s an eye-opening book. This is a coming of age story about Junior, a Spokane Indian teenager who decides to leave his reservation and attend an all-white school. It manages to be both funny and heartbreaking, and I got a little teary-eyed towards the end.

I Would Leave Me If I Could by Halsey ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I Would Leave Me If I Could is a collection of poetry by the singer-songwriter Halsey. Her poems are raw and emotional. Hopefully I can post my full review soon.

Love Potions and Other Calamities by Charlie Laidlaw ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is the third novel I’ve read by Charlie Laidlaw and it’s a humorous mystery set in a Scottish village with an interesting cast of characters. And of course, a large black cat which is prowling around! Full review to follow.

  1. Three interesting books, Shaz! Great to hear you enjoyed them all 😊 That’s lovely to hear you can go back to your library again. I think my nearest ones are still closed for the moment, but hopefully not for long! I hope you are having a wonderful December so far 💜
