I’m reading When Women Were Dragons as the synopsis really intrigued me. I haven’t read much yet, but has really caught my attention. I think this will be a fantastic book on empowerment for women, and I’m really looking forward to seeing where it leads. I’m listening to Utterly Dark and the Face of the Deep which is wonderful. I think this is the first book by Philip Reeve I’ve read, and I’m really enjoying the lyrical style. It feels like it is steeped in myth so I’m looking forward to finding out what happens. I’m reading an e-book of Secret of the Shadow Beasts by an author whose previous books set in Scotland I’ve really enjoyed. This one feels very different – much more fantasy rather than historical based – but I’m loving it.
I’ve finished listening to Between Shades of Gray which is the most incredible story which taught me so much about a period of history I wasn’t familiar with. The author’s note at the end was a great addition. Its definitely a harrowing read that brought lots of tears and anger. I am in awe of the strength and resilience shown by so many as they fought for survival in such harsh and cruel conditions, searching for hope in a hopeless situation. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author. I also finished The Secret Wild which was a wonderful environmental story. I’ve posted my review.
I’m hoping to read Our Sister, Again next.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?

Ooh, you’ve just reminded me of Utterly Dark! It was on my TBR for ages and kept getting sidelined but I need to dig it out and bump it up I think!
I definitely think listening to Between Shades of Grey it was brought to life brilliantly but still almost impossible to get my head round what people endured.

I think Shades of Gray was made into a film but I’m not sure I’d be able to watch it! I’m loving Utterly Dark – I have the book too but the audio is great.

Oh I’ll try and find that film! And great to know the audio of Utterly is good, like you I have a physical copy but I’ll get to the audiobook much quicker!
The film is called Ashes in the Snow. My BorrowBox account has signed me out and won’t let me sign back in so I may have to continue with the physical copy! ☹️
