What I'm reading and listening to this month - February
We all know that reading and listening to music is good for the soul!
We’re big lovers of the written word and a good old hum-a-long here at Cloverleaf, so we’ve asked our colleagues to share what’s getting their earbuds buzzing and sparking their word-nerdiness at the minute...
This is what Jayne is up to…
I’m enjoying reading ‘Don’t Call me Snowflake’ by Lucy Nichol which is about challenging Mental Health Stigma. It’s written in quite a quirky way with some good contributors. The book examines the challenges around language and has some interesting tales which we can all relate to.
On a lighter note, I had to read Prince Harry’s ‘Spare’ which I actually thought was really well written. I’m kind of on the fence with ‘Haz’, but one thing I do know is that I cannot think of anything worse than having every element of my life scrutinised in the press. For all the wealth, palaces, and privileges that come with being born into royalty, there’s still absolutely no way would I trade places.
Music-wise – I’ve just discovered Olivia Rodrigo; her song ‘Brutal’ is ace and highly recommended. I’m also going to see the brilliant Kid Kapichi in Leeds tonight with my teenage sons, described as ‘A night of indignant punk rock, chaotic pits ,and politically charged lyrics’ - I should feel right at home. 😁
