'Project 10 Book'

A month ago, Lauren over at A Blonde Librarian posted a post explaining she is going on a spending ban, which basically means she is not buying any books for the time being. And I thought it was an amazing idea and decided to join as well. So basically Project 10 Book means that I won’t be buying any books until I’ve read 10 books from my TBR which is incredible humongous (you don’t wanna know). Sometimes I wish I can freeze time because the amount of books that are published every other week that I want to read is outrageous.

So instead of keep buying (which is one of the many reason why I’m completely broke) I’m gonna try and do this because I think is a pretty realistic goal. Don’t get me wrong, I do admire those who say they are going on a book buying ban for like 6 months because I know I couldn’t do that. My will power is not that strong and I’m sure after those 6 months I would probably buy all the books with no control whatsoever and I would end up in the same situation.

The list of books I want to buy is huge as well so bear with me and wish my luck… Jeez, I feel like I’m going to war or something. I do feel like every book blogger or avid reader struggles when it comes to buy books. And you need to add to the equation that I also like to collect them. I’m what people know as a book hoarder.  So I need to change that. Period.

Therefore, going on this ban doesn’t mean that when I read 10 books of my TBR I’ll go on a book buying spree. NO. That’s not my intention. Once I’ve finished those 10 books I may treat myself with one or two books. No more. That way I can narrow down the books I wanna buy and consequently I’ll buy those I really want to read instead of buying whatever title I come across. And if this works I’ll continue doing it. And maybe, in the end, it would help me with my lack of self-control. Who knows? It could be the perfect therapy to solve my problem LOL.

Anyways, do you have this problem too? I need to know, just to feel better about myself ;)

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.
