My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up - 11th April 2020


Hello!! How are we doing?!  Happy Easter! This is going to be  a very strange Easter weekend - but as long as there is chocolate and books I think I'll be fine! Weather is looking nice too! The sunshine has made my tree peony begin to bloom!!

As for the reading this week, it has picked up again! Mainly because there's been sunshine so I've been out in the garden most afternoons in a comfy spot and managed to get 4 books finished.  There has still be no new physical books entering the house, but there may have been a slight wobble on the Netgalley front..... it was good while it lasted!!

Here's my look back!

THE CONSTANT RABBIT by JASPER FFORDE
out 2nd July 2020

Peter Knox lives quietly in one of those small country villages that's up for the Village Garden of the Year award. Until Doc and Constance Rabbit move in next door, upsetting the locals (many of them members of governing political party United Kingdom Against Rabbit Population), complicating Peter's job as a Rabbit Spotter, and forcing him to take a stand, moving from unconscious leporiphobe to active supporter of the UK's amiable and peaceful population of anthropomorphised rabbits.

LITTLE EYES by SAMANTHA SCHWEBLIN
out April 16th 2020
A spine-tingling portrait of our obsession with technology, from the Man Booker International-shortlisted literary star

They look harmless enough: you could even call them cute. Not quite a phone, not quite a toy, not quite a robot, these are Kentukis. And it doesn’t take long for these apparently innocent devices to fall prey to our dark obsession with technology.

Little Eyes is a chilling portrait of our compulsively interconnected society. Schweblin irresistibly pulls the reader into an unsettling world of voyeurism, narcissism and the sinister reality that lies beneath the most seductive of masks.
