This book I bought as part of a 3 for the price of 2 offer on the way home from Berlin (a long & convoluted road). I had wanted to see the film, but missed it at the cinema. It is Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly.
Little Tales of Misogyny by Patricia Highsmith was picked up in a second hand book shop somewhere. It was on my suggestions list. It’s been a brilliant book for the tram journey into the city as they are mostly very short stories and it’s very portable. Also it gets your brain working for whatever else you’re about to do.
Emma by Alexander McCall Smith was a gift from my sister who thought it amusing to give me a book with the same name, and that’s based on one of my preferred Austen novels. As well as retelling this story has moved the action (is that the right word?!) to Norfolk. So three good reasons to read it.
Only Human by Gareth Roberts is book number ten – picked up in a fabulous second hand shop in Manchester while we were whiling away the hours before our flight to Berlin. This is published as part of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary.
A lovely anthology of short stories which “extols the female virtues of discontent, sexual disruptiveness and bad manners”, according to the back cover blurb for Angela Carter’sBook of Wayward Girls & Wicked Women.
