Not read a huge amount this month, though managed to do some bits and pieces of thinking/work, and listening to some Georgette Heyer in audio form.

Albert Stridemore's Lockdown DiscoveriesAlbert Stridemore’s Lockdown Discoveries by Chick Yuill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve really enjoyed Chick’s novels so far, so was really happy to get this pretty much as it was released … and it didn’t disappoint. Characters feel rounded, I can imagine them hanging out together (or at least, in a socially distanced way, in this book!) and as we continue in lockdown, it felt really timely to think of how each of us is coping with living with the disruptions that COVID-19 continue to bring to our lives.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this over several evenings, and enjoyed the various thoughts that emerged from Jo Brand – very much like her TV personality, which talks straight … but much more sense of how her background as a mental health nurse has shaped the way she approaches life, comedy and TV.
