Weekend Reads (6)

Today I had already written a discussion for The Cursed Child but I might leave it for next week so I can chew my thoughts some more. However, I posted an Instagram picture explaining as a whole and very simply put my issues with the script without spoiling a soul if you’re interested. And so we are here again with a Weekend Reads.

I’m halfway through The Alchemyst by Michael Scott and although there is action since page 1, there isn’t much to add about it. My second read will be Peter Pan. I’ve been meaning to read it since forever but I never found the time and now that Jen Campbell is doing a read-a-long for it during August it is the perfect opportunity to do so.

I need to continue re-reading Harry Potter especially to try and forget most of the script if possible and so The Order of the Phoenix is next. I won’t manage to get a lot done – I’m well aware – but just a few pages are enough and I wanna take my time.

Anything fun planned for the weekend?

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.
