I read three books on American politics by the BBC’s North America Editor, Jon Sopel – If Only They Didn’t Speak English; A Year At The Circus and Unpresidented: All 3 books are informative, amusing and offer an unbiased account (because he’s BBC and the books are published by BBC Books) of behind the scenes in Trump’s White House. I found them the perfect antidote to the constant noise surrounding last year’s election result.
Having had my fill of politics for a while (I put Obama’s memoir back on the bookshelf), I reread two more titles from my bookshelves.
The Flatshare and The Switch by Beth O’Leary: I still think The Flatshare is a great read and I think I enjoyed The Switch all the more the second time around. I have now added O’Leary’s third book to my pre-ordered list. 🙂
What I highlighted: “It’s easy to forget, when your missing someone, that they’re more than just the person you remember: they have sides to themselves they only show when other people are around.” – The Switch
“That’s the messy thing about family tragedy, I guess. Your best support system goes under in an instant.” – The Switch
“But when you lose someone you love, you don’t lose everything they gave you. They leave something with you.” – The Switch
