The Grudge: Scotland v England 1990 by Tom English.
A Bientot by Sir Roger Moore - his final book before his death in May 2017.
Star Trek: Black Fire by Sonni Cooper
Another set of books I'm slowly catching up on now, not having read when they first came out. And kinder on my sensibilities than the reboot movies.
Tintin: Herge and his creation by Harry Thompson.
I just finished "Mornings in Jenin" by Susan Abulhawa this weekend.
It was an emotional read that made me cry. It follows a family in Palestine from the 1940s until 2002 and how three generations of this fictional family are effected by real life events like the forming of Israel, the six days war against Egypt in 1967 and a massacre in Lebanon around 1982.
Reading this book gave me a better understanding for Palestine and it's people as it's written by an American author whose parents are from Palestine. It also made me understand how horrible it is to live in oppression in refugee camps. So yeah it was an interesting but sad read.
The book can be recommended to those who are interested in learning more about the topic and that particular POV.
Total Recall by Arnold Schwarzenegger (his autobiography).
The Saint in London
This is the twelfth Saint book, which puts me one-third of the way through the ones that Leslie Charteris wrote before the series was continued with other writers.
Please share some thoughts about this book (and any future books that you may post about)!
The last book I finished was My Sister Milly, by Gemma Dowler. Absolutely heartbreaking but a story that needed to be told. You really get an insight into what that family went through, but also what an absolute sub human piece of filth Levi Bellfield is.
What Katy Did/What Katy Did at School/What Katy Did Next by Susan Coolidge
Back to the children's classics.
When Lions Roared - The British and Irish Lions in New Zealand 1971.
Brilliant account by the players of the epic Lions victory over the All Blacks - their only test series victory to date.
Pironi - The Champion That Never Was.
Biography of Didier Pironi.
I've just finished "Montesquieu, Rousseau, Marx" by Louis Althusser. As Marxist critiques go, it was okay but there were no pictures in it whatsoever.
Star Trek: Strangers From the Sky by Margaret Wander Bonnano
The story of a hushed-up first meeting between humans and Vulcans a century before the official one -and of course Kirk and Spock are somehow involved.
Working The Wheel by Martin Brundle.
A description of many of the F1 circuits on which Martin Brundle has competed during his career.
