#RYBSAT Round 2 TBR

RYBSAT stands for Read Your Bookshelf-a-thon and is hosted by Miranda from BooKss101 (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo8cV36kdkVG5wpTZLJZMQg), Gary from BookNeedLove (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGJsAa_uPDUcHzBtdxxcYYA) and Lainy from Gingerreadslainey (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWEbV2Z1guEF0SvWF0Ng2qw). It is going to last from Monday 16th to Monday 23rd of June. Basically what you have to do is pick a spot in your bookshelf and start reading from then on and see how much you can read in a week. If you want to see Miranda’s video (that’s how I discovered this read-a-thon) here it is:




My pick is this spot:


I’m going to start reading Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout and continue on with Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott and on and on. I honestly don’t know how much reading I will get done because even though is Summer I don’t know what things may get in the way but anyway the only thing that really matters to me is enjoying the books and have a good time. And if by the end of the read-a-thon I manage to finish The Ring & The Crown by Melissa de la Cruz much better.

Also, I would be updating my progress throughout the week on both Twitter and Instagram so go check it out there! I’m not sure if I would be doing a specific wrap-up for this read-a-thon or just my general wrap-up at the end of the month. We’ll see at the end. Anyway, have a fantastic week and happy reading!

Go find me on Goodreads!

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.
