Book Review: Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo

Mainly set in London we hear the story of a proud black lesbian playwright, her sassy super-feminist daughter and a sexually fluid millennial, just to name a couple.

Book Review: One Day by David Nicholls

I can definitely see why this books is a bit love it or hate it. The story of Dexter and Em is given to us in snapshots, Starting from their meeting at uni up to their late 30s, the book oozes sexual tension, but with an increasingly dark edge which reminded me of Sally Rooney’s novels.

Book Review: The New Wilderness by Diane Cook

The New Wilderness – The New Wilderness wasn’t quite I was expecting.
