The Current Contemporary Literature Book Box Explained

Despite quite a heavy subject, this novel is hilarious and heartwarming. I adored every bit of this book, the witty part, the sad part and the angry part. It really helps understand how people with mental issues struggle to get through life when not diagnosed properly. Meg Mason is so talented that even a subject of this nature is enjoyable to read. Definitely one of the best books I have read recently.

 Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason (Orion Books, 2021)

Martha Friel just turned forty. She used to work at Vogue and was going to write a novel. Now, she creates internet content for no one. She used to live in Paris. Now, she lives in a gated community in Oxford that she hates and can’t bear to leave. But she must now that her loving husband Patrick has just left.

Because there’s something wrong with Martha. There has been since a little bomb went off in her brain, at seventeen, leaving her changed in a way no doctor or drug could fix then and no one, even now, can explain—why can say she is so often sad, cruel to everyone she loves, why she finds it harder to be alive than other people.

It feels like the end but maybe, by going back, Martha will get to start again. Maybe there is a different story to be written, if Martha can work out where to begin.

The Current 100% Murder Mystery Book Box Explained

When cosy crime meets romance, you get the perfect summer read ! I love to discover a new series where I can relate to the main character. Kitt is a bold librarian whose soft heart and daring spirit might lead her into problems… what a joy ! Get your beach towel and sun glasses, you are in for a good chill on the beach.

Murder by the Minster by Helen Cox

It’s a perfectly normal day for Kitt Hartley at her job at the University of the Vale of York library, until Detective Inspector Halloran arrives at her desk to tell her that her best friend, Evie Bowes, is under suspicion of murder. Evie’s ex-boyfriend Owen has been found dead – with a fountain pen stabbed through his heart – and all the evidence points to her.

Kitt knows there is no way Evie could murder anyone – let alone Owen, who she adored. Horrified that the police could have got it so wrong, Kitt decides there’s only one thing to do: she’s going to investigate Owen’s murder herself. She’s read hundreds of mystery novels – how hard can it be?

With the help of her assistant Grace, and the occasional hindrance of the library’s eccentric regulars, Kitt summons up all her investigative powers (absorbed over years of reading everything from Agatha Christie to Ian Rankin) and gets to work.
