Currently #2

A long time has passed since I last did my first currently post (10 months I believe) but I thought fitting to write another one.  Although my days are spent being more worried about Uni work than anything else, I decided to spend this week finishing Winter by Marissa Meyer and the rest of the Little Black Classics I own. Suitably enough, I have 7 LBC left to read it and it’s my intention to do so, one each day. It doesn’t take a lot of time to go through them and they will be a nice distraction between study hours, I think, as well as will be the poetry collection by Frost. Winter, on the other hand, will be my companion before going to sleep.

During the last weeks of December all my reading time will be spent re-reading Harry Potter (finally!) after trying to do so for the last three years and failed. And even though I might not re-read the entire series I will be happy with whatever I can manage; I simply just wanna be back in Hogwarts with my favourite trio and their gang.

What are your plans this week? Are you taking part in #HarryXmasToYou?

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.
