August Books | 2020


August is over. And I read a ton of books. I am quite surprised myself... and on top of that, there was only one 'so-so' book and the rest were all amazing reads *throws confetti around* 💃💃

  • Love After Love by Ingrid Persaud (8.5/10).
  • Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert (9/10).
  • Stamped from the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi (10/10).
  • Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-GarcĂ­a (7.5/10).
  • Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell (9.5/10).
  • Pew by Catherine Lacey (6.5/10).
  • Ship of Destiny by Robin Hobb (7.5/10).
  • The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter (8/10).
  • The Deep by Rivers Solomon (9/10). I read this one twice and I highly recommend it. Once you know how everything connects you can fully focus on the themes explored.
  • Almendra by Won-pyung Sohn (8.5/10) [translated into Spanish by Sunme Yoon].
How was your month?

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 BrontĂ« 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).
