Books read in June:
The HolidayThe Holiday by T.M. Logan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wanted to read a lightweight paper book so this seemed to fit the bill … weaves together the possibilities in quite an unexpected way (although maybe felt a little convoluted), and the setting is clearly somewhere the author is familiar with.

Gone GirlGone Girl by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I saw the film – maybe last year – so remembered vague bits of this – May have helped add to the tension in some ways! This is quite a

clever/complex ‘murder mystery’ with a quite weird and difficult ending … but v readable – I wanted to know what was happening next.

The Manipulation of Online Self-Presentation: Create, Edit, Re-edit and Present (Palgrave Studies in Cyberpsychology)The Manipulation of Online Self-Presentation: Create, Edit, Re-edit and Present by Alison Attrill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although with 2015 already starting to look a bit old, there’s a whole load of interesting theory succinctly summarised in this book, some of it long-term re self-presentation, as well as raising a whole number of new debates about what is specific about online (although some aspects of the environment have already moved on).
