Sarah-Lou is reading...

Funny Ha, Ha : 80 of the Funniest Stories Ever Written
Edited by: Paul Merton
(Oversized Paperback £15)

We could all do with a laugh right about now so this is a very well-timed paperback release & is the winner of The Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year. Featuring stories by Anton Chekhov, Ali Smith, P.G. Wodehouse and many, many more I'm reading one short story each evening to welcome the darker evenings and eke out the chuckles.
Kelsey is excited to start...

The Evening and the Morning
by Ken Follett
(Hardcover £25)

I love Ken Follett and the prequel to Pillars of the Earth is just what the doctor ordered. He always gives history a vivid and tactile feeling helped by a rich balance of characters and a great plot.

Cannot wait to start and will be sad when I have to finish!


Before the Coffee Gets Cold:
Tales From the Cafe

by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
(Paperback £8.99)

After reading Before The Coffee Gets Cold, I was completely enamored with this beautiful story and place, so I am looking for ward to dipping back into the coffee shop, and the lives of the people who wish to see or change their past.

Alice's top Autumn reads...

by Susanna Clarke
(Hardcover £14.99)

After reading a load of non-fiction I have a hankering for something spooky and mythical, and the long-awaited Piranesi will hopefully be just that! This work of supernatural, gothic fiction seems like the perfect novel to read as the leaves change and the nights draw in. 

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

by Ocean Vuong
(Paperback £8.99)

I've been wanting to read this since it first came out in hardback last year! The novel takes the form of a letter written by Little Dog to his illiterate mother, tracing the sweeping impact of the Vietnam war to the secret revolutions in Little Dog's hidden life. Vuong is a poet first and author second, and I'm so looking forward to seeing how he blends the two forms together.

Highland Bookshop Reviews
Braiding Sweetgrass
by Robin Wall Kimmerer

In a series of exquisite and moving essays, Robin Wall Kimmerer, a botanist and a member of the Potawatomi Nation, explores ideas of nature and the natural world through a wholly unique, groundbreaking and well overdue perspective.

Reading that is a feast for the senses, an ode to the natural world, palpable, rich and warm
