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.

I might be going away for the weekend as well and I'm already thinking about other titles that I can take with me. I know that I want something light and easy to get through so I might pick up The Wizard Heir. The first book in that series wasn't the greatest but I enjoyed the fantasy aspect of it and I decided to give the second book a go and see if the series is worth completing.

As I mentioned - way too many times, sorry - before, I'm having troubles writing reviews for the books I'm reading; I have zero motivation for it and I honestly don't know why so I'm going to try and write some, even if they are not very long as to put up a mini reviews post but I need to get back on track with my blogging now that I have more free time and I can be more consistent.

Any fun stuff planned for the weekend?

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.
