Black History Month

October is Black History Month here in the UK and as such I wanted to share some of the books I’ve read this year, fiction and nonfiction, as well as the books I’ll be reading this month.

Good Intentions | Kasim Ali

As the eldest son of a working-class Pakistani family living in a traditional/typical community, surrounded with “aunties” Nur grapples with the consequences of his decision. He wants to be a good son, he loves his parents but he also loves Yasmina.

Books verses Movies

Lazy weekend afternoons had me channel hopping, and I stumbled across an old adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express (1974) I remember watching this film twenty years ago and falling in love with all things Agatha Christie and her epic detective Hercule Poirot. To this day I haven’t read a single book by her, although I own a good few.
