Keeping up the pace pretty well – getting a bit behind on my Netgalley backlog, as I’ve not managed to read all those for a while, but I’m off on holiday this month, and will only be taking a Kindle with me, so that should help me get through a few of those!
This month I’ve read:
Season of Longing by Sadie Matthews
Say My Name by J. Kenner
22 Dead Little Bodies by Stuart MacBride
Invaded by Melissa Landers
Them: Adventures with Extremists by Jon Ronson
I really enjoyed this. It’s a little dated now – predates 9/11 by a couple of years – but it’s a fascinating exploration of how paranoia and conspiracy can be catching. Ronson is much like Louis Theroux – he has a very straightforward way of approaching interviews, presenting what happened usually without any commentary on what he thinks or feels, leaving the interpretation open to the reader. And even though the topics covered include some horrible stuff (there’s a moment where a domestic is ‘punctuated by gunfire’), there’s enough black humour to make it a really entertaining read.

Data Runner by Sam A. Patel
