Here is my October wrap up! Not pictured- as I borrowed from a friend and sadly had to return, I also read the Northern Lights trilogy by Philip Pullman for the first time (I know right) and absolutely loved it.
I've rated each book out of 5 stars: ·The Diary of a Bookseller, Shaun Bythell. A really fun, insightful read ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
·The Tinman, Sarah Winman. Touching and beautifully written ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
·War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy. AMAZING, I enjoyed this so much more than I thought!!!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
·Alias Grace, Margaret Atwood. Thrilling and enjoyable ⭐⭐⭐⭐
·Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides. Really interesting and sad ⭐⭐⭐⭐
·Chernobyl Prayer, Svetlana Alexievich. Haunting, but something everyone needs to know about and understand ⭐⭐⭐⭐(and a half).
·Julie and Julia, Julie Powell. An interesting portrayal of mental health and ways in which people can overcome such issues ⭐⭐⭐
·The Waves, Virginia Woolf.
Interesting but slightly hard to read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
·What I Talk About When I Talk About Runnung, Haruki Murakami. A really readable blend of running and writing and a bit of background to a great novelist. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
*Animal Farm, George Orwell. Orwell at his finest, with a bleak portrayal of society. ⭐⭐⭐⭐(and a half).
·Swimming, Roger Deakin. Really interesting but I would never consider swimming where he does! ⭐⭐⭐
·Language, Xiaolu Guo. A really vivid picture of how immigrants feel when coming to other countries and not being able to communicate as they would want. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
·The Northern Lights Trilogy, Philip Pullman. Sooo good! Why didn't I listen to all the people who told me to read these before?? ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Did anyone read some fab books last month, any suggestions at all? I can't decide what to read next!!
