10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World – Elif Shafak – 04.04.21

According to this book (I don’t know if it’s true or not), scientists have shown that brain activity can continue for up to 10 minutes 38 seconds after clinical death, and that is the premise for the first half of the novel, as we share the thoughts of Leila, a sex worker in Istanbul forContinue reading “10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World – Elif Shafak – 04.04.21”

The Masked City (The Invisible Library book 2) Genevieve Cogman – 23.03.21

The Burning Page (The Invisible Library book 3) Genevieve Cogman – 30.03.21 So, I read the next two books in the Invisible Library series. I’m still trying to decide what I think of the series. I can’t really say anything negative about it – it doesn’t really annoy me (apart from the ‘sexual tension’ betweenContinue reading “The Masked City (The Invisible Library book 2) Genevieve Cogman – 23.03.21”

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – (AUDIOBOOK) Suzanne Collins – 23.03.21

The Magnus Archives Series Three (Podcast Series) – Jonathan Sims – 28.02.21

Maybe because I’ve listened to nothing else for so long, or maybe because I seem to have endless problems with my Spotify playlist insisting on shuffling episodes when I’m out for a run so I keepContinue reading “The Magnus Archives Series Three (Podcast Series) – Jonathan Sims – 28.02.21”

The Lost Future of Pepperharrow – Natasha Pulley – 26.02.21

This is a sequel to The Watchmaker of Filigree Street, which I loved, and follows the same characters, but this time, instead of a Steampunk Victorian London, the action takes place in an historical Japanese setting with the backdrop of growing Japan/Russian tensions and threats of war. I loved the Japanese elements, since while myContinue reading “The Lost Future of Pepperharrow – Natasha Pulley – 26.02.21”
