October’s reads... . Some brilliant books last month, ranging from the story of Phiona Mutesi, born in the Ugandan slum Katwe and now her country’s first Woman Candidate Master in chess in Queen of Katwe, the hilariously funny Crazy Rich Asians, the The Hate U Give’s incredibly relevant message on race-relations in America, and the final two Hunger Games books (only about 10 years too late)... . #books#bookstagram#reading#readingchallenge2018#91of100#childrensbooks#youngadultbooks#nonfiction#fiction#queenofkatwe#madgirl#bryonygordon#crazyrichasians#kevinkwan#thehungergames#suzannecollins#thug#thehateugive#angiethomas#theresarebeck

September’s reads . Not my normal type of book, but The Givers is a fascinating insight into the world of big philanthropy in the US. With increasing numbers of billionaires seeking to give away their vast wealth during their lifetime to worthy causes, what is less visible is the huge amounts of power and influence being wielded in choosing the projects and organisations that benefit from their generosity - sometimes to the detriment of the ordinary citizen. . Wundersmith is the wunderful follow-up to the amazing Nevermoor, one of my favourite books of last year (and earned a re-read this month in preparation for book 2). Morrigan Crow has earned her place in the Wundrous Society, but faces a hostile and dangerous reception to the organisation that should be her new home and family. Full of charm, hilarious characters and an enchanting world, another year is far too long to wait until book 3! . #books#bookstagram#reading#readingchallenge2018#84of100#childrensbooks#thriller#nonfiction#thedefence#stevecavanagh#snap#belindabauer#thehungergames#suzannecollins#thegivers#davidcallahan#nevermoor#wundersmith#stepboldly#jessicatownsend#turningthetideonplastic#lucysiegle

August’s reads have continued to add more books to my ‘favourite books of the year’ list . The Help is one of those books I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to read. Incredibly tough going at times, but such an important story with far more nuance and detail than the film (good as it is) could hope to achieve. . David Attenborough’s Adventures of a Young Naturalist follows his first three expeditions for the BBC: to find giant anteaters in Guyana, the Komodo Dragon in Indonesia and armadillos in Paraguay. Brilliantly funny and full mishaps, this book brings those adventures to life. . #books#bookstagram#readingchallenge2018#77of100#fiction#nonfiction#nickhornby#iammalala#killeronthejury#stevecavanagh#janefallon#davidattenborough#thehelp#kathrynstockett#sherrythomas#astudyinscarletwomen#fallingshort#lexcoulton#thepisces#melissabroder
