Last Now Next #2

LAST - You Should See Me in a Crown. This is a feel good type of book; it is cheesy and over the top but that's the point. It's a book that despite having characters dealing with difficult issues, gives you joy, steals a smile from you and makes you believe in good things happening to good people. I wish though Liz's and Robbie's relationship have been explored more because it was one of the elements I liked the most at the beginning of the book and thought the sibling's dynamic was going to be pivotal point but despite the reader knowing how much they love and care about each other, I wanted more scenes of them together, as well as with their grandparents.

NOW - Stamped From the Beginning. I am going to focus on this book until I finish it. I went on a mini-holiday and didn't take it with me and so fell behind on my reading. It's a book you need to read slowly to be able to process everything but this one should be mandatory for everybody.
NEXT - Love After Love & Hamnet. I wanted to read the latter when it came out and I got it in April but since it deals with grief I didn't think I was ready for it at the time. Maybe it would've helped me but it's a triggering issue for me and I thought it best to wait a bit. I think I'm ready for it now. And I got Love After Love after a bookstagrammer recommendation and I cannot wait to dive into it.

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).
