17: High Rise J.G. Ballard [Kindle]

This was April's choice for the book group. The premise of the plot was really interesting, but sadly the writing let it down. Not only was it appallingly sexist, but there were gaping holes in the decisions the people in the high rise made. Good discussion though.

18: The Vanishing Witch Karen Maitland

Good story and twists, loved the little snippets of folklore at the start of each chapter. Very well written characters, who even if you didn't exactly like, you were interested in.

19: Mornings in Jenin Susan Abulwaha

Heartbreaking. Devastating. But so good. So well written. Not one to read in public though, as I cried on the bus, the train, at the bus stop. But so worth having read.
