Plain Bad Heroines by emily m. danforth | 2021 Reads

Plain Bad Heroines by emily m. danforth. I truly thought I would love this and I didn't. I enjoyed it and I am glad I read it but I will be lying if I said I am not disappointed. What I loved about this book was the first part of the story and Libby's storyline during the second part, as well as the atmosphere danforth managed to create throughout; but all in all, I expected more. Something was missing for me and I found the last chapter very underwhelming: I was expecting the two storylines (the present one and the past one) to fully merge but it felt like they never did so what was the point really?

However, concerning my overall enjoyment of the story, I do think I am to blame, partially, for not giving it my full attention and instead reading it here and there. My enjoyment - and especially my engagement with the novel - would have been greater had I read it more consistently. Maybe it is one to reread in the future.

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).
