Added to Wishlist
- Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings – Mary Henley Rubio. I’ve only just discovered that this exists, although of course there would be a biography of L.M. Montgomery!
- Kojki – Keith Yatsuhashi. This is a total cover add, but Japanese mythology in the modern day? Yes, please.
- Not Your Sidekick – C.B. Lee. Love the sound of this story following Jessica who has no special powers in a world full of superheroes.
- Memory of Water – Emmi Itäranta. I first noticed this when Lianne at eclectictales.com added it to her Goodreads list. The mix of Chinese and Scandinavian cultures alone makes it look interesting.
- Lady Killer, Volume 1 – Joelle Jones & Jamie S. Rich. I think you guess from the cover alone why I’m interested in this one 😀
- The Call – Peader Ó Guilín. A dystopian-horror from an Irish writer. Yay!
- Boone Shepard – Gabriel Bergmoser. Another one that attracted me with its cover, and then intrigued with its bonkers description. Bonus points for being set in Scotland.
- Crosstalk – Connie Willis. I didn’t know that sci-fi romantic comedy was a genre, but I’m certainly willing to give it a go.
Articles of Note
- Gamescon 2016: Game Trailers. I’m not sure how I feel about the new Resident Evil… I just want to shoot zombies, guys.
- In An Ideal World, Abortion Would Be Legalised But Nobody Would Access It. Yup, yup.
- Publisher Wins Rights to Voynich Manuscript, A Book No One Can Read. I love that there are still things we haven’t decoded, and I love that this company reproduces old manuscripts exactly. What I don’t love is how much they cost 🙁
- Netflix to Stream New Anne of Green Gables. This makes two new adaptations!
- Mr Men ‘Makeover’ Sees Little Miss Fabulous and Mr Adventure Enforce Gender Stereotypes. SIGH.
- Bloodbaths and Bad Dreams: Shaun Tan’s Fairytale Sculptures. I’m a fan of Shaun Tan’s graphic and written work, so it’s no surprise that I think these are pretty cool.
- 20 Brazilian Books in Translation. The Paralympics are on, so this is still a timely list. Honest!
- Where Are The Women in Translation? Here Are 31 To Read Now. My TBR list really doesn’t need it, but there are a few on here that look amazing.
- How History Forgot The Black Women Behind NASA’s Space Race. A really interesting read, and I’ll definitely be picking the book up at some point.
- Raspberry Peach Lemonade. But with gin, obviously.
- Crispy Broccoli Parmesan Fritters. YUM.
- Spicy Sausage Meatballs in Tomato Sauce with Herb Rice.
- Smoky Sausage Casserole. I like that this tricks me into eating spinach.
The glory of Fleabag has almost made me forgive the BBC for moving BBC 3 online. That said, I would never have found out about it if it wasn’t for this Guardian article which makes it sound spectacular. And my god, it is spectacular. It’s dark and hilarious and sad and awkward and really fucking good. It’s on the iPlayer, so you’ll have no problems devouring all six episodes in one go like I did. For non-UKers, I’m pretty sure Amazon have picked it up, so you have a subscription to Amazon Prime, go find the glory that is this programme.
