Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon | TBR 2017 Round II


It is that time of the year again. It is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon time! I wasn't sure about participating this second time around but I couldn't resist. I always have an incredibly good time, not only sharing my reading during 24 hours straight but also keeping with other people's reading progresses. So, this Saturday (the 21st) you'll find me between the pages of many books.

I have already started Uni but I'll take the day off because I truly want to dedicate all my time to read. I went for short novels and a picture book this time as to not burn myself too much during the day:

- Franklin's Flying Bookshop by Jen Campbell. Perfect when one is starting to notice the tiredness.
- Tin Man by Sarah Winman. 
- The Tobacconist by Robert Seethaler.
- Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.

As always, I'll write another post where I'll be updating my reading and as always, I would love for you to link in the comments where you'll be updating yours.

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.
