The dark net by Jamie Bartlett

An interesting, enlightening insight into the the people, places,activities and possibilities of the dark net.
"SHORTLISTED FOR THE POLITICAL BOOK AWARDS AND LONGLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE Beyond the familiar online world that most of us inhabit - a world of Google, Hotmail, Facebook and Amazon - lies a vast and often hidden network of sites, communities and cultures where freedom is pushed to its limits, and where people can be anyone, or do anything, they want. A world that is as creative and complex as it is dangerous and disturbing. A world that is much closer than you think. The dark net is an underworld that stretches from popular social media sites to the most secretive corners of the encrypted web. It is a world that frequently appears in newspaper headlines, but one that is little understood, and rarely explored. The Dark Net is a revelatory examination of the internet today, and of its most innovative and dangerous subcultures: trolls and …
The highway by C.J. Box

An exciting and nail biting read.
A gripping story from start to finish. Also a terrifying insight into the mind of a serial killer, understanding the background of the killer - what makes him tick. How much anger is stored up in him from way back and why it's there.
C.J. Box has written lots more, enjoy them all.

Goneville : a memoir by Nick Bollinger
"Bollinger was just 18 when he went on the road with the band Rough Justice and its smoky-voiced, charismatic leader Rick Bryant. The next two years were sometimes uplifting and exciting, other times enervating and depressing. It was the 1970s and pot was plentiful. Often, though, the band was short of other things- money, food, shelter, and petrol for its increasingly ramshackle, broken-down bus. Goneville is both a coming-of-age story and an intimate look at the evolving music scene in '70s New Zealand. It shows how this music intersected - sometimes violently - with the prevailing culture, in which real men played rugby, not rock. Nick Bollinger draws on his own experiences, seeks out key players and unsung heroes - and vividly portrays a divided country, set to shatter apart for a generation."

The miniaturist by Jessie Burton
"There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed..." On a cold winter's day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of Amsterdam. She has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt, but instead she is met by his sharp-tongued sister, Marin. Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways... Nella is at first mystified by the closed world of the Brandt household, but as she uncovers its secrets she realises the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall?

Saga : volume 1 by Brian K Vaughan, Artist Fiona Staples

Fantastic. Highly recommend Graphic novel  Saga series, 7 in the series so far.
A family saga just like a soap opera but set in a fantasy world. One set of protagonist have horns, one wings; the outcast offspring has both. The characters are great, it's well written and the drawings are fantastic. the situations that the characters find themselves in this highly different war are exciting and challenging.
I am I am I am : seventeen brushes with death by Maggie O'Farrell

A biography  told through "brushes with death" in the authors life. From childhood to current day, told through chapter heading labeled as parts of the body. A novel and enthralling way to tell your life story. Maggie O'Farrell's writing style uses words so brilliantly to convey fear, loss, happiness, love and creates such a personal story anyone could relate can to this memoir of a life. An absolute delight to read and re-read.
