The Strange Bird sees Jeff VanderMeer return to the world that spawned Borne, crafting a novella from the point of view of a piece of Company biotech. The story follows its eponymous bird, who escapes from the laboratory in which she was built. Once in the outside world, she cannot connect with other wildlife and struggles to know which humans she can trust in a landscape destroyed by technology and the people that created it.
Taking part in this year’s OWLs Magical Readathon has been so much fun! I managed to complete all the OWLs I needed for the career of Hogwarts Professor, plus two extras, giving me a total of nine and an overall grade of Outstanding!
I thought I’d steam through books in April because I had so much time off but turns out I struggled to find time in the first couple of weeks! I spent four lovely days in Yorkshire with my family and managed to read a little in the evenings. After that, my mum came to stay with me in London and we were super busy seeing the sights so I didn’t get my butt in gear and buckle down with my books until the second week of April, but I quickly made up for lost time!
Happy Easter! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend however you’re spending it. We’ve had amazing weather here in London, so far I’ve spent most of this four-day weekend in the sunshine but today I think I’m going to cosy up with a book and work on my OWLs! This tag was created by Rosie the Reader, but I first saw it on Paperbacks and Planners. It looks super fun and I haven’t posted much this week so I thought I’d join in. I won’t tag anyone but drop you Easter Book Tag posts in the comments below so I can check out your answers if you do take part.
