Challenge criteria: A book that’s published in 2018

Have you got books on your already read list that you’ve totally forgotten about? Me too. There are so many books I really enjoyed at the time, but over the years and with so many other books read, I’ve forgotten a lot of them. There are some that I’ve already read that I would gladly sit down and flick through again. I’ve reviewed some of them on this blog, so I’ve added in some of the reviews for a little more info.
This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.
Through rallies and marches, in polite drawing rooms and freezing prison cells and the poverty-stricken slums of the East End, three courageous young women join the fight for the vote.

Challenge criteria: A book about death or grief

I am possibly one of the most cynical people I know. I don’t even know the reason why, but it seems throughout my life I have very little tolerance when it comes to romance. I am the only person I know who didn’t cry at the end of The Notebook. Maybe something happened somewhere in my life that turned me off the idea of a happy ever after. Or I was just born with a heart of impenetrable stone.
