The Murmur of Bees – Sofía Segovia, Simon Bruni – 30.05.20

This book was recommended to my by my daughter, and since it was only 99p on kindle I bought and read it. It’s translated from Mexican and set in the early twentieth century. The story is told to the backdrop of the Mexican Revolution and the spread of Spanish Flu, along with the Great DepressionContinue reading “The Murmur of Bees – Sofía Segovia, Simon Bruni – 30.05.20”

The Hoarder – Jess Kidd – 21.05.20

I have read quite a few of Adam Roberts books and some I absolutely love and others I am a bit meh with, this one sadly fell into the later category for me. It’s somewhat confusing working out if it’s set in our distant future, or in an alternate reality, and while the end ofContinue reading “Polystom – Adam Roberts – 18.05.20”

Machines Like Me – Ian McEwan (AUDIOBOOK) – 14.05.20

I listened to this while making my most recent patchwork quilt (https://www.instagram.com/p/CAkRQ2Jgeio/) so it’s forever linked in my mind with sewing squares together! I found the audiobook very interesting – a young man buys a prototype android and owning it has profound implications to his life. The book raises a lot of issues about whatContinue reading “Machines Like Me – Ian McEwan (AUDIOBOOK) – 14.05.20”
