WHERE DID THIS WEEK GO?????????????
It feels like it just skipped from Monday straight to Sunday!… very strange!
I’ve nothing much to report today so instead of talking about myself and my week I want to link you guys to this AMAZING review of the book ‘Let it Snow’ written by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. I read this book back in 2015 I think and found it to be quite bland and really I can’t remember much about it…
But this week my friend and fellow blogger Gabby @A Gathering of Books and Magic read it in preparation for watching the Netflix adaptation and OMG you guys….
SHE WELL AND TRULY SPILLED THE TEA!!!!!!!!!!
I freely admit I was 100% blind to any problematic instances in this book but Gabby has written the most awesome book about it that really shines a spotlight on issues such as rape culture, slut shaming and general negative female stereotyping.
If you all read one book review this week make it this one right here.
What I read
As for me…. YOU GUYS I GOT A READING GROOVE BACK WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!! I read four books this week and feel so happy about it. The books I read were the 2019 Booker Prize nominee ’10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World’ by Elif Shafak, an eARC called ‘In Five Years’ by Rebecca Serle, a contemporary YA called ‘How to Disappear’ written by Sharon Huss Roat and lastly a graphic novel called ‘Sabrina’ by Nick Drnaso that was longlisted for the Booker Prize in 2018. Reviews for each book will be up on the blog this week.
What I am currently reading
Hahahaha I’m not in a slump, I just have not yet picked out my next read. I have a few ideas floating around my head; Sally Rooney’s ‘Normal People’ is looking like a strong possibility but I am also thinking that I might like to read a science fiction… But I will definitely pick something before the day is out!
