weekend reads | 05.01.18

First weekend reads of 2018! I'm still kind of shocked that 2017 is over and I'm currently stuck on my desk with all my notes all over the place, studying and revising for finals. However, I'm taking a bit of time at the end of the day to read for a few minutes the beauty that is the changeling by Victor Lavalle. 

I'm absolutely in love with the writing style and I'm taking my sweet time with it. If you've checked my reading goals for this year you already know 2018 is the time I put the word enjoyment back into my reading and one way of doing that is just reading at my own pace. Some days I'll read, others I won't and that's okay. I don't want 2018 to be a race for me.

What plans do you have for the weekend? Here were are celebrating the Twelfth Night and I'm going to the Three Wise Men parade with my family. Hope you have an awesome 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.
