Wow, talk about a post being overdue!
November was a fairly quiet reading month with only four books read in total, but they were all enjoyable.
- The Thing About Clare by Imogen Clark – I’ve mentioned Imogen before as a friend from my writing group who is doing incredibly well at the moment. It’s easy to see why. Her writing is excellent. I definitely recommend this!
- A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult – I’ve read most of Jodi’s work. I grow tired of her books at times as they can seem a little formulaic to me, especially if I read several of them close together. I really enjoyed this one, though, and it made me think a lot about how political Jodi’s books are becoming and how she combines her creativity with her platform to raise awareness for difficult subjects. In this book, the pro-life debate.
- Utopia For Realists by Rutger Bregman – this was a good read, although I probably could have stopped reading it halfway through as the first part was the highlight for me. The arguments for giving money to the homeless unconditionally, and a basic universal income, were fascinating to me in particular.
- Becoming by Michelle Obama – a fabulous read. I loved her as First Lady and her book is as open, classy and wonderful as I hoped.
