weekend reads | 16.03.18


Happy Friday! As you can see my reads haven't changed much from the ones at the beginning of the month. The only book I managed to finish was The Hazel Wood but I'm so close to finishing Middlemarch -- I'm on book 7 and things are starting the get very very interesting. 

Now, I'm debating whether I should DNF Tender is the Night. The book simply doesn't make any sense but I feel bad not finishing it because it was the first choice for the online bookclub I recently joined. The book is divided into three books. I have finished the first one and I'm starting the second one. Truth be told, I only read 30 minutes per day of it because all my time is dedicated to Middlemarch. Once that's finished, I'll try and read more of Tender is the Night because I want to be done with it as soon as possible.

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).
