weekend reads | 2.03.18

This post is more like a March TBR really. These three books are what I'm planning on reading this month. I've already started The Hazel Wood and so far, it is quite average. I think I should learn my lesson here and stop pre-ordering hyped new releases with amazing reviews and just wait until they come out to check out as well negative reviews. Middlemarch I've been meaning to read for ages but it's one of those books I find super intimidating. Why did I decide to pick it up then? Glad you asked. There is some read-a-long going on on Instagram called #middlemarching and it was the perfect excuse for me. My aim is to read 50 pages a day.
The other book is Tender is the Night by Fitzgerald. It's the book for a bimonthly online book club I recently joined and I'll be reading it through March and April most likely.

What are your reading plans for March?

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.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
