Weekend Reads | 21.04.17


And it's Friday again! Today, I have a lot of Uni work to do in the morning and then I have classes from 7pm to 10pm so I don't think after that I'll do much at all... On Saturday I have a hen party and I'm kinda excited because I've never been to one before so I hope we can all have an awesome time. And considering we'll be partying the whole night I will probably sleep all Sunday. However, the cosy reading night is also happening from 7 to 10 pm (8 to 11 in my timezone) so I might join in.

So I don't really know how much reading I'll get done but I'm gonna try and make some progress on Dreams of Gods and Monsters, the third and final installment on the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. I was planning on reading Crooked Kingdom this weekend but since finishing Days of Blood & Starlight I thought I might as well complete the whole series and be done with it. I wasn't really much impressed with the second book so I hope the conclusion will be good.

Anyways, those are my plans for the weekend. What about you guys? Any special plans?

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.
