Covid 19: An Extraordinary Time (Creative Responses to the 2020 Pandemic Book 1)

What an extraordinary way to pay homage to a truly extraordinary time. The book (edited by Debz Hobbs-Wyatt and Gill James) is a collection of fictional stories, vignettes, true accounts and poetry - all of them bearing witness to the months of the 2020 Covid pandemic. 

Important. Entertaining. Historic legacy. Time capsule.

Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger

This is a fantastic book. It has everything a psychological thriller needs to make it to the number one spot: an excellent premise, multi-dimensional characters, swift pace and issues to think about once the reader turns the last page. 

On the surface, the book is about a woman who finds her perfect match on a dating site, only to have him disappear in mysterious circumstances. However, the book is also about topical issues like loneliness caused by the lack of face-to-face interaction, family love, guilt, forgiveness, return to nature, healing.

Probably Lisa Unger's finest yet.
