Book Review – Before the Coffee Gets Cold

Cover image for Before the coffee gets cold : tales from the cafe / Toshikazu Kawaguchi ; translated from the Japanese by Geoffrey Trousselot.

By Toshikazu Kawaguchi

Imagine a small café where you can travel back in time. This is a moving story of four visitors to the café, hoping to take advantage of the magic for many different reasons. However, you must follow the rules. To sit in one particular seat. To stay in the cafe. You also have to return to the present before the coffee gets cold. I really loved this book, and I can’t wait to read the sequel!

Book Review – Educated

Cover image for Educated / Tara Westover.

By Tara Westover.

A fascinating and inspiring insight into a childhood within a survivalist family in Idaho. Overcoming the odds, growing up outside of mainstream society, Tara has a very limited view of the wider world. Challenging the beliefs she had instilled, she is torn between a family she loves and the society she lives and studies in. A beautiful and moving memoir.
