Happy Saturday to one and all! We made it through another week – and the whole world just seems to be getting even more weirder than ever!! What next??!! I think someone needs to invent a chill pill as there seems to be no escaping the insanity at the moment….
If there was ever a time to be thankful for being a reader, it’s now!! So happy to have books to distract me! And it’s been another pretty good week bookish wise for me, although I’ve not read as much as due to the weather forcing me indoors to focus on stuff inside! boo!! But I still managed to finish 3 books, had one lovely bookpost arrival and zero additions to the netgalley shelf! Yay!

PARIS SAVAGES by KATHERINE JOHNSON

Fraser Island, 1882. The population of the Badtjala people is in sharp decline following a run of brutal massacres. When German scientist Louis Muller offers to sail three Badtjala people – Bonny, Jurano and Dorondera – to Europe to perform to huge crowds, the proud and headstrong Bonny agrees, hoping to bring his people’s plight to the Queen of England. Accompanied by Mullers bright, grieving daughter, Hilda, the group begins their journey to belle-epoque Europe to perform in Hamburg, Berlin, Paris and eventually London. While crowds in Europe are enthusiastic to see the unique dances, singing, fights and pole climbing from the oldest culture in the world, the attention is relentless, and the fascination of scientists intrusive. When disaster strikes, Bonny must find a way to return home.
