New books...

The Gender Games by Juno Dawson
"Gender isn't just screwing over trans people, it's messing with everyone. From little girls who think they can't be doctors to teenagers who come to expect street harassment. From exclusionist feminists to 'alt-right' young men. From men who can't cry to the women who think they shouldn't. As her body gets in line with her mind, Juno tells not only her own story, but the story of everyone who is shaped by society's expectations of gender - and what we can do about it."

I was lucky enough to win a signed edition from Goodreads and started reading this as soon as it arrived. I tend to take my time with non fiction- dipping in and out of them but so far I am enjoying this.

 We Have No Idea  by Jorge Cham & Daniel Whiteson*
"Prepare to learn everything we still don't know about our strange, mostly mysterious universe.

PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson have teamed up to spelunk through the enormous gaps in our cosmological knowledge, armed with their popular infographics, cartoons, and unusually entertaining and lucid explanations of science."

Bad Choices by Ali Almossawi*
"The wildly popular author of Bad Arguments returns with a funny, smart introduction to algorithms—those perennially misunderstood, increasingly important problem-solving rules that can save you time and lead to better choices, every day. 

Why is Facebook so good at predicting what you like? 
How do you discover new music?
What's the best way to sort your laundry? 

Bad Choices will open the world of algorithms to all readers making this a perennial go-to for fans of quirky, accessible science books."

The Sonterion Mission triliogy by Stewart Ross*
"In a post-apocalyptic world where no-one lives beyond their teenage years, the mysterious Roxanne arrives in Cyrus’s village, fleeing the barbaric Zeds. She claims to be on a mission that can save them all, but can she be trusted? Cyrus joins her in her quest for the legendary Soterion, but the Zeds are determined to get there first."

I couldn't say no to a dystopian! I will be posting in full about this series later in the month.
