"Billy Kahora brings technical nous and organisation to his prose. That, in alliance with his grasp of the ins and outs of a certain Kenya, which I will dare call middle-Kenya, is what works for his writing... There is the vocabulary of the drinkscape (booze flows through the writing in quantity enough his prose could be designated a distillery). There is the near-casual psychological violence committed on almost every page."

Scribbles and Ink (hardcover) •
Two artists, two styles, and one book that may not be big enough for the both of them. See, Ink (the mouse) likes things to be clean and precise. Scribbles (the cat) is the opposite. But while there should be plenty of room for each of them to make their art without getting in each others way, or on each others nerves, THEY CAN'T MANAGE THAT! And from there paint splatters, ink goops, pencils get broken and brushes go wild until...it's not a work of art, IT'S A MESS! Discovering that they are no longer having any fun, the duo tentatively tries to collaborate instead of clobber, and, thus, a disasterpiece becomes a masterpiece. Include a giant fold-out and a detachable sketchpad. With this much creative friction, will this disaster-piece ever become a masterpiece?

China’s handling of the coronavirus has impacted the global economy and fuelled anti-Chinese campaigns.

Many countries are looking for alternatives for their production. This presents a new opportunity for India to expand its manufacturing base, and play a significant role in revamped global supply chains.

A buccaneering novel full of adventure but also the realities of seagoing expeditions in the 1800's. The heroine is Marie-Louise Girardin, a widowed mother during revolutionary France who must leave her son as a newborn and join the Recherche and the Esperance on their rescue mission in search for La Perouse and his crew. It is based on a true story and we see how her alter ego Louis Girardin overcomes dangers not only from the elements and the unknown but also men and their ideals in a time where women were not in charge of their destiny. 
I was surprised at how the story was condensed at around 400 pages (I read it on ebook) when it spans a few years. I admired the way that Stephanie Parkyn respected difficult topics such as colonialism and slavery without making a political statement or endeavouring to rewrite history. It was a page turner for me and bittersweet to reach the end of the novel.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng - another iso read. This book took me a little while to get into but it was a great read with a few twists and sub plots! Looking forward to watching the series starring and produced by @reesewitherspoon (everything that woman creates is gold, seriously!)- Steph F 🌟

Well well well @amyengelauthor what a ripper, suspense, thrilling, didn’t see it coming this turned out to be!! “In other places, the murder of two little girls would have blanketed the entire town in horror. Here, it was just another bad day.” #thefamiliardark 5 🌟

Can I be real with you? I can’t remember the last time I’ve read a book all the way through, without feeling drained or overwhelmed or exasperated by what’s going on in the world outside of the pages I’m reading. Can I be really honest? Quarantine isn’t even the reason for my inability to finish a book, though it hasn’t helped. No, no this has stretched on a good while, I’m ashamed to say.  I’d blame university: “I’m not reading the books I want to read”. I’d blame work: “Well I spend all of my time reading, by the time I finish I just want to rest my eyes.” I’d blame my home environment: “No body will let me have one minutes peace to read this book.” When in all honesty, the excuses I have are lame. Don’t get me wrong, I have read some books, but not as many as I’d like. It’s usually the books I end up getting really invested into that suffer the most - (I must pick back up from where I left off in An American Marriage). •

My mind wants to read, my concentration span on the other hand has other ideas. •

Children’s books have my heart mostly, just because of the emotional connection that forms after having read them. And they’re quick and to the point! I love seeing a child laugh at the funny illustrations or repeating the rhyming scheme of a book that gets stuck in their head. Children’s books just remind me of my childhood and the avid reader I was. I also just love the fact I get to play a part in passing on that same feeling to the next generation. I love it when a child can really see themselves in a book too. Love love love it and will hopefully point you in the direction of great children’s authors and illustrators very soon. •

However I’m on a journey to rediscover what I like in books again and I really want to be held accountable and disciplined. So starting in June, I’m going to challenge myself to read two books and review them. I love me some romance and some non-fiction, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and venture outside of my comfort zone. Maybe I’ll try a thriller… (LOL maybe, maybe). Anyone else feeling the same and want to take part in the challenge? Let me know below x

📚For anyone who enjoys crime/thrillers and is looking for some good escapism. But if you haven’t read Don Winslow before I highly recommend starting with ‘The Power of the Dog’ before FX turn it into a series.

Over the years H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche visited Nepal many times, feeling deeply connected with the country and its spiritual energy. On one of those trips, an unexpected and unplanned stop at Nyanang Phelgye Ling Monastery led to a chance encounter with an old and kindly monk and a lifelong connection with this Dorje Shugden monastery.

The Safe Place - Anna Downes (June release) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
•

Right, any book with advance praise from JP Pomare, Chris Hammer AND Christian White is a book I’m going to want to read immediately! 
The Safe Place has a brilliant “creepiness” to it because you’re not really sure what’s going on - plenty of red flags coming up as you read but nothing to make it obvious what’s going on which I love in a thriller. I also love a thriller when technology gets taken away - in this instance limited internet connection/phone signal - it adds wonderfully to the suspense. This kept me guessing right up until near the end - I had theories throughout but I was pretty far off the mark. I really liked the ending though I feel some will find they’ll be left wanting. 
Thank you to Netgalley, Affirm Press and Anna Downes for the opportunity to read and review this ARC. #netgalley #thesafeplace •

SYNOPSIS: For struggling actress Emily Proudman, life in London is not working out as planned – in fact, it’s falling apart. So when she is offered a live-in job working for a wealthy family on their luxurious coastal property in France, she jumps at the opportunity to start over.

The estate is picture-perfect, and its owners exude charisma and sophistication. But as Emily gets to know the family, their masks begin to slip, and what at first appears to be a dream come true turns out to be a prison from which none of them will ever escape – unless Emily can find a way to set them all free.
