Reading List (23/1)


A school approaching learning in a different way.

Fiona the hippo!

Over the weekend I finished Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I couldn’t to stop listening, could not put it down. (I’ve made excellent progress on my latest scarf as a result.) It is a tragic book, about everything unsaid between families. It is also about the silence women endure – the silence of not saying what they want, or being unable to do what they want because of societal expectations. I seem to be on a roll of books with this theme at the moment.

Cake for breakfast anyone?

A new report out on hunger and poverty in the UK.

It occurs to me that the seeds have contrived all of this to bring us together.An article on the importance of art in more scientific spaces, of what art can do in helping people understand seeds and agriculture.

The instagram village.

How making can help improve moods during these dark dark January days.

Last week I finished The Watchmaker of Filigree Street which is yet another book I have loved already this year. I listened to this also (I’ve had a bunch of Audible credits to use up) and I loved the soothing, slow narrative of the book. That makes it sound boring but it totally isn’t! It is one of those books that will give you a warm, happy feeling on the inside.

Grace Dent’s first restaurant review in The Guardian is a joy.

Have a good week! x
