February Book Club
As the snow continues to fall and temperatures remain rather chilly, there's nothing better to do than curl up with a good book. At La Sororité we've selected our favourite few to inspire, comfort and surprise as we all spend more time indoors.
Such A Fun Age Kiley Reid
Enchanting, authentic and thought-provoking, Such A Fun Age explores themes of friendship, privilege and race in a narrative that's as off-beat and intriguing as its characters. After a misunderstanding one evening, a babysitter and the family she works for begin to analyse their thoughts and actions in a spectacular tale of overcompensation and overthinking. An eye-opening read that poses some really interesting questions that will stay with you long after you've finished the final page.
Girl, Woman, Other Bernardine Evaristo
Complex, intriguing and extremely clever, Girl, Woman, Other takes contemporary writing to another level - no wonder it won the Booker Prize in 2019. Evaristo's novel follows the lives of 12 Black British women over the course of several decades, with a narrative that intertwines each story with outstanding skill. Immerse yourself in the struggle, joy and dreams of these incredible women - with the promise of a rather astounding finale.
Educated Tara Westover
In the words of Barack Obama, this truly is 'a remarkable memoir'. Educated follows the incredible life of Tara Westover and her pursuit of individuality. A fierce bildungsroman-esque journey that chronicles Westover's tough childhood and how she found freedom through education and learning. Compelling and emotional, prepare to feel inspired by this novel. Her writing about the complexity of family ties and how these twist and turn during her formative years is nothing short of fantastic.
