As usual, too many books at once. I'm listening to the audiobook of Dietland by Sarai Walker, which so far is funny and intriguing.

I'm partway through Radically Speaking, a collection of essays editerd by Diane Bell and Renate Klein, which I need to get into a bit more, and Difficult Women by Roxane Gay (a short story collection).

I've also just started Feedback, by Mira Grant, which is a zombie story by the author of the Newsflesh Trilogy. So far, so good.
My main reading matter is crime fiction but for the month of March I am reading, or have read, the following books - this is what I do in my leisure time!

I’ve started Golden Hill by Francis Spufford, clever historical fiction, absorbing from the first chapter. Unlike another period piece His Bloody Project by Graeme MacRae Burnet which was too stiff and courtroom oriented for me. I’m also into Nothing But Trouble by Kerry Wilkinson a solid copshop drama but I find his writing style a bit amateurish despite his status. I got through Vivienne Westwood by Vivienne Westwood, a kind of autobiography, an insight into her British fashion house from the seventies until the present, one eccentric fashionista.

After reading My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, I had a couple of questions relating to the subtext about families. I puzzled over it for a day before I moved on to Atomic City by Gold Coast author and resident Sally Breen, a challenging, convoluted neo-noir book without speech quotation marks which I learned to embrace. Next came Black Teeth by Zane Lovitt, a long book for what it was; Lovitt’s first book was brilliant but this one needed massive editing. I listen to e-audio books for variety and at the moment I’m chuckling along with Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett interspersed with delightful Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach. I don’t get bored!

Matthew Reilly's The Great Zoo of China.
I loved Reilly's Jack West series and one-off novels 'The Tournament' and 'Contest', actions from page 1.
