weekend reads | 2.03.18

This post is more like a March TBR really. These three books are what I'm planning on reading this month. I've already started The Hazel Wood and so far, it is quite average. I think I should learn my lesson here and stop pre-ordering hyped new releases with amazing reviews and just wait until they come out to check out as well negative reviews. Middlemarch I've been meaning to read for ages but it's one of those books I find super intimidating. Why did I decide to pick it up then? Glad you asked. There is some read-a-long going on on Instagram called #middlemarching and it was the perfect excuse for me. My aim is to read 50 pages a day.
The other book is Tender is the Night by Fitzgerald. It's the book for a bimonthly online book club I recently joined and I'll be reading it through March and April most likely.

What are your reading plans for March?

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.
