The #ShitIHaveTooManyBooks Read-a-thon Round 2 TBR!

Okay, that title was a mouthful LOL!

A few months ago, Regan from PeruseProject (https://www.youtube.com/user/PeruseProject/videos) started her own Read-a-thon and even though I couldn’t participate in the first one I decided to take part in Round 2 because one, is summer time and two, why the heck not? I don’t have big expectations for it because I’m in a weird reading slump which means I’m reading but at slow pace which I don’t really mind either but anyways… Here is my TBR for this:


1. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
2. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephenie Perkins
3. Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Shioban Vivian
4. La Princesa Prometida by William Goldman (The Princess Bride)

I’m planning on reading these four books and just in case I finished them all (I wish!) I would probably pick up Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman which has been on my shelves like forever.




The Read-a-thon started this last Wednesday and will end next Wednesday, 6th of August. I will be using both Twitter and Instagram to do daily updates instead of my blog. So go follow me there! Anyways, I will stop writing now!

Happy reading!

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
