weekend reads | 16.03.18


Happy Friday! As you can see my reads haven't changed much from the ones at the beginning of the month. The only book I managed to finish was The Hazel Wood but I'm so close to finishing Middlemarch -- I'm on book 7 and things are starting the get very very interesting. 

Now, I'm debating whether I should DNF Tender is the Night. The book simply doesn't make any sense but I feel bad not finishing it because it was the first choice for the online bookclub I recently joined. The book is divided into three books. I have finished the first one and I'm starting the second one. Truth be told, I only read 30 minutes per day of it because all my time is dedicated to Middlemarch. Once that's finished, I'll try and read more of Tender is the Night because I want to be done with it as soon as possible.

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.
