Summer TBR


Summer is officially here. I say officially because in Spain we've been dealing with a horrible heat-wave since the beginning of last week and I cannot fathom how people love summer. I hate it, with a passion. And I cannot wait for autumn and winter if I'm honest.

Anyways, I'm not here to hate on summer although I love doing just that. I'm here to share with you all my summer TBR. I did the exact same thing in spring. So it's gonna be the same now: I've picked 5 titles which I wanna read during the summer months. I hope to read more than 5 books during the next three months but these 5 are a priority of some sort.

  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've been meaning to read this book for ages now but I'm terrified of the hype. However, I do want to watch the TV show adaptation and for that to happen, I need to read the book first.
  • The Clocks in this House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks. I pre-ordered this book the moment I heard about it because it sounded so so good. It came out in April and despite wanting to read it, I couldn't because of damn finals. Now I'm free. Yay! I hope it lives up to my expectations though.
  • Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham. This book is part mystery part historical fiction. In present day Tulsa Rowan finds a body in her family's property and she tries to find the truth behind it. But it also deals with past Tulsa and the horrible events that happened in 1921. I know this is gonna pack a punch. I've heard nothing but amazing things.
  • The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry. If you don't know about this book, where have you been living? Under a rock? It was everywhere last year and it has been released in the US the past week I believe. It is a very hyped book in the book community and that's why I've been putting it off for the longest time but I need to know what all the fuzz is about. It sounds just straight up my alley.
Any books you're planning on reading this summer?

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).
