What have you been reading? I've picked up some awesome library books in the last couple of weeks,
Kindred Spirits - Rainbow Rowell.
I liked this book fine, but it wasn't my favourite by Rainbow Rowell. I liked the main character, Elena, and loved the twist at the end, but the story just didn't grab me.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl - Ryan North and Erica Henderson.
I really, really love Squirrel Girl. This collection of the first 4 Squirrel Girl comics is so cute and funny. Doreen Green tucks her tail into her trousers and goes to college, while saving the world on the side. I love tippy-toe her squirrel friend, the inclusion of Iron Man and her knitting room-mate. I've had the Squirrel Girl theme song stuck in my head for weeks though!
The First Rebellion - M.C. Beaton.
I feel a bit ashamed for liking this book so much. On the one hand it's full of bluestockings, feminists and the story is so engaging I Need to know what's going to happen! But on the other hand the women are kissed, sometimes forcibly, in the manner of a she-says-no-but-likes-it-really Mills and Boon romance. Which makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. But not so uncomfortable that I'm not going to read the rest in the series.
My Tiny Garden - Lucy Scott and John Cardwell.
I love this kind of book with photos and stories of lots of inspiring gardens. These are all tiny gardens, and I especially like the one on a houseboat!
