Lev's Violin - Cover
September 5, 2021
by Helena Attlee

This book was enjoyable, easy, reading. I got fully immersed in the feeling of the violin culture; in the history and the way the author is follows the story through different towns and countries. This idea of just taking a journey dictated entirely by a spontaneous interest is very appealing. Really enjoyed it!

Diary of a Young Naturalist - Cover
August 29, 2021
by Dara McAnulty

I really loved this book. I think it's interesting for a few reasons. One is that I haven't read many books where an autistic person is describing their feelings and experiences. It's really interesting to learn. Another part that really impacted me was his discussion of how young people are being forced to be more active and outspoken, but, ultimately, are excluded from important decision making, and that adults praise them, but inevitably continue doing whatever they were doing before. That comment hit me quite strongly, and I'm not sure what to do about it yet. Overall, an exceptional read, and will help you appreciate nature!

Alive - Cover
June 13, 2021
by Piers Paul Read

An amazing story and great reading. I picked up this particular second-hand copy in Hay-on-Wye, a self-proclaimed "Book Town", and in it we found a photo of someone, probably the loved-one of a previous reader! The book itself is highly readable; in fact I could barely put it down and read it in just two days!

Beowulf - Cover
June 6, 2021
by Maria Dahvana Headley

I loved this. I've never read Beowulf before, and am very very happy this is translation was the first. Highly readable, with very fun and enjoyable language, and some nice comments from the author at the start. I'll definitely be reading this again, and am now keen to read more books by her! Highly recommended.

Lost Pianos of Siberia - Cover
April 18, 2021
by Sophy Roberts

An amazing read about a journey through various towns in Siberia where the author is in principle searching for a piano, but in reality just enjoying the discover of history and connection through pianos. One of the best books I've read. Will definitely read again!
