Welcome to another week of book I have read. Almost the end of May and we have had some weather! I think this last week we have pretty much every season show itself, biting winds, torrential rain, gusty wind, sunshine and I am sure there was a bit of hail as well!
Just aw well I have plenty to read so I can stay indoors, dry, warm and snug. So here is what I have read over the past week…
I received Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forests by Suzanne Simard and have been reading it over a week or so. This book was such a fascinating one to read as it was part biography, part nature, part science and a whole lot of sense. Dr Simard tells of her life growing up and how she noticed a a much deeper relationship between soil and trees. It was such an educational book, and in layman’s terms. Easy to read as it mixed the science, observations and research in with the authors life. A must read for anyone interested in nature, ecology, natural world. I adored this book.
What a beautiful and stunning read The Ladies Midnight Swimming Club by Faith Hogan was. Three women of different generations all reach a sort of crossroads in their lives. I am going to be vague on this one as it is such an amazing read, it had me in tears and I if you love emotional, soul searching stories, women’s fiction or contemporary fiction then you really do need to get this one.
I wanted a light-hearted and fun read and came across Summer in the City by Emma Jackson. This was ideal for reading over an evening, so hit the spot perfectly. Noelle is an author who has writers block and see’s Stephen’s problem as a way to possibly add a touch of inspiration. A fun will they/won’t they contemporary romance read that was a wonderful escapism read.
I had big hopes for Threadneedle by Cari Thomas, I hoped it would be a book that would grab me and transport me into a magical witchy world. Guess what? It DID!!! I adored this book a mix of magic, family, troubles and so, so much more. It is a YA book that has glimmers of Discovery of Witches ( a brilliant series, btw), and has left me so desperate to read more. This is the first book in The Language of Magic series and my full review will be as part of the blog Tour.
There we go, another week done and dusted.
Have a great week ahead and
