IN SEPTEMBER …

[CELEBRITY]

Stranger than Fiction reviews The Hottentot Venus: The Life and Death of Sarah Baartman, by Rachel Holmes. She writes, “Holmes has done extensive research using a variety of records and secondary sources. She gives a lot of background information about the area and historical events during Baartman’s life in Africa that gives a greater understanding of the people and attitudes of that time.”

[RELATED TO A PODCAST]

Sarah Steel, the creator and host of the popular ‘Let’s Talk About Sects’ podcast, examines the dynamics of cults and the people involved with them in Do As I Say: How Cults Control, Why We Join Them, and What They Teach Us About Bullying, Abuse and Coercion. I thought it was, “…an interesting, thought-provoking read that should suit a range of readers interested in the topic.” Read my review at Book’d Out.

[PUBLISHED IN 2022]

Denise Newton Writes recommends True Friends by Patti Miller. “It is a book to savour, one that made me laugh and sigh in recognition, and that I continued to think about long after I’d closed the cover.”

[MEDICAL MEMOIR]

The Button Pusher by Taylor Page is a graphic memoir about growing up with ADHD for a middle grade/teen audience. In her review at Book by Book Sue writes, “On its surface, this is a very enjoyable, beautifully-drawn graphic story of childhood and adolescence, told from a boy’s perspective. But there is also so much emotional depth to this memoir, plus fascinating information about ADHD.”

[CELEBRITY]

Robert Jobson’s William at 40: The Making of a Modern Monarch was a bit of a disappointment for Laura at Reading Books Again. She writes, “If you have ever read any newspaper article about William, or a social media post, then you probably are familiar with the material in this biography.”

    I’m determined to read at least one, and hopefully 2 non fiction books in October.
