EtheringtonHeaders-Bookish FindsDSC_0932

Camden Town is a great place to visit. It’s vibrant and busy and packed full of interesting cuisines and shops, and vintage clothes. It has everything you could want, including a Waterstones. I’ve been in a few times, just to admire the books. In the fiction section downstairs you can heard the distant rumble of the Tubes racing by, and it’s a quiet refuge from the bustle if you’re not a huge fan of crowds. I went in last week to buy my soon to be brother-in-law David Rodigan’s autobiography for his birthday, because I’m one of those pushy bookworms that tries to sneak literature into most celebrations, and I couldn’t help buying something for myself as well.

I bought:

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

I’ve wanted to read this book for ages, and almost bought it more than once. I want to be more diverse in my reading, and I think Homegoing will be a powerful novel and one that tracks the path of history. I’m really excited to read it.

See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

Another debut novel that I’m really looking forward to reading. See What I Have Done is an interpretation of the violent real-life murders of Abby and Andrew Borden, and the mystery surrounding them. Andrew Borden’s youngest daughter, Lizzie, was tried for their murders and famously acquitted in 1893.


Have you picked up any new reads this week?
