Whose Story Is This?: Old Conflicts, New Chapters

Rebecca (Y) Solnit

£12.99 £12.34

Solnit is always a heavy read for me, and this volume of her recent essays is no exception. However, I always find the penetrating intellect, historical analysis and context, and sheer force of her prose to be inspiring. I'm so glad to live in a world where I get to read her writing. - Aleks

Call Me By Your Name

Andre Aciman

£9.99 £9.49

Goodness me, my Pride memo came a bit late didn't it? Happy to be here guys. This is technically my second time reading this as I listened to it on audio in January. However, I retained absolutely nothing so all my familiarity is coming from the movie. I am trying to be open minded and not jump to critique the "usual" parts of this book that most people jump on so hopefully I can come away with a more well rounded, and maybe positive, view on this novel. - Courtney

Son of the Thundercloud

Easterine Kire


This novel melds Christian mythology with the folklore of the Nagas, a mega ethnic group indigenous to the Northeast region of India. It is a fable-like tale heavily inspired by oral traditions. The novel is an affirmation of the power of storytelling and how it is synonymous to hope in times of distress. I am actually reading it for the second time as it is the July pick for my book club. - Areeb
