Lifestyle & Leisure

By Kate Duggan

From historical fiction to dystopian literature plus new releases
to older books that deserve more attention, there’s plenty to get
your teeth stuck into this month.
The Midnight Library – Matt Haig
Nora’s overdose doesn’t result in, as she’d hoped, nothingness.
Instead, she’s transported to the Midnight Library, where she
gets the chance to try the other lives she could have led if she’d
made different choices. As she faces her regrets (from not
marrying to not becoming an Olympic swimmer), Nora discovers
that the path not taken isn’t always the panacea she thinks it is.

A Song for the Dark Times – Ian Rankin
Rebus is back, but this time it’s personal: his son-in-law is missing. Rebus heads
out to solve the mystery. His daughter seems to be the obvious main suspect,
so which role will Rebus prioritise – detective or father? Meanwhile, back in
Edinburgh, DI Siobhan Clarke is on her own case, that of the murder of a wealthy
Saudi student. These two very different cases may turn out to be part of the same
tangled web. A Song for the Dark Times is a gripping crime thriller with plenty of
twists to keep you turning the pages.

Gather the Daughters – Jennie Melamed
On the island, girls are little more than wives-in-training – following the decrees
of the founding ancestors and submitting to every demand of their fathers. They
have one brief period of freedom over the summer, when they live wild and do as
they please. The summers are short-lived, and the girls know that they’re destined
to be married once they hit puberty. But one day they decide to take back their
freedom, at whatever cost. Gather the Daughters is pretty disturbing and there are
a lot of triggers, but as dystopian literature goes, it’s one that will stick with you for

a very long time.
Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng
Whether you’ve watched the Amazon Prime series or not, the book is
well worth a read. To the outsider, Shaker Heights seems like the perfect
town. And no one is more perfect than Elena Richardson. Her daughter
Izzy, on the other hand, is impetuous and disinclined to follow the rigid
path laid down by her mother. When artist Mia Warren arrives on the
scene with her daughter Pearl, the fragility of a ‘perfect’ life becomes all
too apparent. A many-layered read about motherhood, secrets, race and
the many nuances of right and wrong.

A Room Made of Leaves – Kate Grenville
A Room Made of Leaves is the fictionalised account of a real woman’s life –
Elizabeth Macarthur. It’s set in the late eighteenth century. Women had few
prospects beyond marriage, so when Elizabeth marries the cold, ambitious John
Macarthur she has little choice but to follow him wherever he decides to go, even if
that’s to the other side of the world to live in a new settlement in Australia. A must

for historical fiction fans.
