Territorio de luz by Yuko Tsushima | 2021 Reads


Territorio de luz by Yuko Tsushima (translated into Spanish by Tana Oshima). Enjoyed this one as a whole and appreciated how raw the portrayal of single motherhood was and how both mother and daughter were affected by it. 

It is a very disjointed narrative mainly because it was published, monthly, as a series of 12 stories in a magazine between 1978 and 1979, so there were chapters that I enjoyed more than others. Sometimes I was very invested and other times I was a tad bored. Despite its narrative structure not being completely to my taste, I have to say it was an interesting read - probably one which will get richer with a reread.

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).
