Open, honest & human. A memoir focusing on a high-flying lawyer’s battle with mental health, and subsequent recovery.
‘Born a Crime’ by Trevor Noah lives up to hype, and goes much much further. This was a book that I had seen mentioned on #bookstagram multiple times, and I was eager to get my hands on a copy myself. In short ‘Born a Crime’ is all the things described above and much much more.
‘In Your Defence: Stories of Life & Law’ by Sarah Langford is the first book that I have read that has been recommended to me by a fellow bookstagrammer, and honestly I am stoked.
‘Client Earth’ is the first book that I read cover to cover in 2019. I started a new job in January and didn’t want to overwhelm myself. I opted to keep my reading to a minimum – although this only lasted about two weeks! Located about ten minutes away from my office – so perfect for a lunch time stroll – is one of the last remaining independent not-for-profit bookshops in the area. Naturally, I picked up three:
‘Client Earth’ by James Thornton and Martin Goodman
‘Safe Planet’ by John Cowsill
‘Why Your World is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller’ by Jeff Rubin
