Weekend Reads | 7.07.2017


Another friday, another weekend reads! At the beginning of the week I started reading The Clocks in This House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks and in all fairness I'm not sure what to make out of it. It's incredibly dark in its subject matter but the story isn't pulling me in as much as I was expecting but it is at least an interesting novel.

I might be going away for the weekend as well and I'm already thinking about other titles that I can take with me. I know that I want something light and easy to get through so I might pick up The Wizard Heir. The first book in that series wasn't the greatest but I enjoyed the fantasy aspect of it and I decided to give the second book a go and see if the series is worth completing.

As I mentioned - way too many times, sorry - before, I'm having troubles writing reviews for the books I'm reading; I have zero motivation for it and I honestly don't know why so I'm going to try and write some, even if they are not very long as to put up a mini reviews post but I need to get back on track with my blogging now that I have more free time and I can be more consistent.

Any fun stuff 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.

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).
