Round-up of Books I have bought recently

Do I need any more books?

No. no I don’t, but – beside the point.


Here are some of the books I downloaded/were approved to read on Netgalley recently.

Quit like a Woman The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol – Holly Whitaker

The Book Depository

This cost 1 pound something. I had to get this book because I have wanted to read it for a while. I followed Holly on Instagram and it took me ages to realise she had a book. A book that people are expressing is a great read, which isn’t necessarily a good thing. We will see.  

Rising Strong – Brene Brown

The Book Depository

This cost less than a pound. The author came recommended. Another book where I might learn something.

Cow Girl – Kirsty Eyre

Waterstones

Cow Girl was an approved title from Netgalley. Cows and a terrible pun on the cover did it for me. It looks good. A Sunday evening read.

Hickory Dickory Dock – Agatha Christie

It was free. You know I love Christie’s dialogue, more than anything. It’s a Poirot mystery, I prefer Marple. Might have read it in the past.  

Waterstones

Driftwood – Marya Layth

I really liked what Marya was posting from this book on her Instagram feed and eventually thought to buy the book. Proceeds from Driftwood are going to Futures Without Violence a Covid-19 response to helping kids and adults get away from abusive situations.
