Weekend Reads | 7.07.2017


Another friday, another weekend reads! At the beginning of the week I started reading The Clocks in This House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks and in all fairness I'm not sure what to make out of it. It's incredibly dark in its subject matter but the story isn't pulling me in as much as I was expecting but it is at least an interesting novel.

Book Review | Ties by Domenico Starnone

Ties by Domenico Starnone {Goodreads}
Published by Europa Editions in 2017
Paperback edition; 150 pages {BookDepository}

“In case it’s slipped your mind, Dear Sir, let me remind you: I am your wife. I know that this once pleased you and that now, suddenly, it chafes. I know you pretend that I don’t exist, and that I never existed…” are the words which open Ties, a novel about a fractured marriage told from the perspective of the wife, the husband and the children. I went into it with zero expectations since I received it in my March Moth Box and haven’t heard about it before and I was taken completely by surprise.

June 2017


June is over and good riddance! I should acknowledge that although the beginning was stressful with my last two finals and sad because Sense8 got cancelled, the end of the month was way better. After a lot of fight from the fandom we got the amazing news yesterday that Netflix is gonna give us an ending for the show, after saying the cancellation was irrevocable. I still believe this show deserves way more seasons because everything about it is amazing but I'm happy that we can - at least for now - get the ending we deserve so that the story gets closure. And who knows, if we bring in enough numbers we might get a third season.
