Birthday Book Haul



What better way to come back to the blog than with a bookhaul? My family and friends really outdid themselves this year and I ended up with this amazing haul for my birthday. I am very excited to read them all but considering how many there are and how lenghty (looking at you War and Peace & Fortunata y Jacinta), it is more than likely I won't be able to get through them before the year ends. Last year I gave myself the challenge and did it but I am not sure about this year. Will try though.
  • Guerra y Paz by Leo Tolstoy.
  • Fortunata y Jacinta by Benito Pérez Galdós.
  • La escritura indómita by Mary Oliver.
  • El palacio de hielo by Tarjei Vesaas.
  • Todo el mundo puede ser ANTIFA by Pol Andiñach.
  • El legado de las diosas by Katerina Tucková.
  • Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls by T Kira Madden.
  • The Covent Garden Ladies by Hallie Rubenhold.
  • By Ash, Oak and Thorn by Melissa Harrison.
  • Wake, Siren: Ovid Resung by Nina MacLaughlin.
Have you read any of these? 
Happy reading!

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.
