Well, what a month it’s been. Firstly, a week of government admin and then a flu like cold that refused to go away. I have been doing Booker reading but have not kept up with reviews. So, here is my very unedited update. I promise longer reviews of my favourite books soon.
Firstly, I Dnf’d the history of wolves. I just couldn’t seem to get past the first few pages. In addition, I rather shame facedly Dnf’d days without end. I know that a lot of people love this book. I really appreciate that it has a queer relationship at it’s core and that it looks at slavery. But, at it’s heart it’s another cowboy and western novel written from the perspective of the white guy.
I did finish Underground railroad. I really liked this book but it was not a favourite. There was something that kept pushing me out of the story.
In addition, I finished Exit West. I really loved this book. I loved the main characters. I loved the way that it dealt with it’s main themes of nationality and immigration (expect a longer review when I fully shake this virus and my nose stops running.)
I am currently listening to Reservoir 13 and I am still making my slow way through 4321. I. Keep you up to date with my progress and hopefully manage to some properly edited reviews up now that I am beginning to feel better.
