Weekend Reads (3)


I’m still reading these two books because 1) I haven’t got so much time these past couple of days and 2) they are so good I wanna take my time with them. A year ago I read the first two books in the Mistborn trilogy and I didn’t pick up the third and final installment straightaway because I needed a break. The second book was heartbreaking. Little did I know I was gonna wait more than a year to get to The Hero of Ages. So far, so good. I love the magic system and the characters as much as the first time.

Fairytales for Wilde Girls though it’s the real deal this week. I picked it up on a whim: a recommendation on Goodreads and oh boy…. It’s so good I can’t even. The writing style is perfection and the story is so fantastical. I highly recommend it and I haven’t even finished it yet!

Also, there is some news blogging-wise. I’ve been having troubles with Google+ comments for a while but I didn’t want to disable them because that would have meant losing all my comments. However, I decided to install Disqus just because I was so fed up. And indeed I lost all previous comments but I hope this new system works alright for everybody (and my sake) and it can make up for this inconvenient. Sometimes blogging gets on my nerves. You don’t know how many times I screamed yesterday to my computer. Anyways, I hope you don’t mind the change so much. Let me know how it goes as to continue with this new one or get back to the old system.


Have an awesome weekend!
And 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.
