My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up – 5th November 2022

Hello and Happy Saturday! November we are now in you…..and the shops have gone full on Christmas and I’m sick of it already LOL! Roll on January I say…. I’ll have book tokens to spend haha!!

And speaking of books, it’s been an ok bookish week for me!  I managed to finish 5 books, 2 of which are for Netgalley November so feeling happy about that!  Just 1 newbie on the Netgalley shelves too, and then there were some charity shop book purchases that I just couldn’t NOT treat myself to….

Here’s my look back….

Just one caught my eye on Netgalley this week…

THE GOLDEN MOLE by KATHERINE RUNDELL

** SHORTLISTED FOR WATERSTONES BOOK OF THE YEAR **

The world is more astonishing, more miraculous and more wonderful than our wildest imaginings.

In this passionately persuasive and sharply funny book, Katherine Rundell tells us how and why.

A lavishly illustrated collection of the lives of some of the Earth’s most astounding animals, The Golden Mole is a chance to be awestruck and lovestruck – to reckon with the beauty of the world, its fragility, and its strangeness.

A swift flies two million kilometres in its lifetime. That’s far enough to get to the moon and back twice over – and then once more to the moon. A pangolin keeps its tongue furled in a pouch by its hip, a Greenland shark can live five hundred years, a wombat once inspired a love poem.

And then I dared to wander in to a charity shop for a browse…. and at £1.50 a book I couldn’t resist these… I guess I’m now a Macmillan Collector’s Library collector!!
