I missed a week of reading bookish posts because I overcommitted (as usual) to commissioned work and couldn’t find the time to read.
I know nobody cares whether I publish these posts or not, but I want to hold myself publicly accountable for reading and sharing.
If you’d like to read my book review recommendations for Feb, please check out these links:
Sahil’s creative thoughts about the books he reads are just as good as the photos he posts, if not better. Check out this post about A Day in the Life by Anjum Hasan.
I was so taken by the cover art that I clicked to read this post. Irin mentions that it’s a good read as well, rating it a 4.5/5. I loved this bit:
“I really appreciated how IKOACLS explored the theme of differences between people with rich and poor backgrounds. Young people tend to have preconceived notions about others belonging from different kinds of households, and Beck’s character highlighted that aspect perfectly.”
Another book with a mesmerizing cover! And such a beautiful review of what seems to be a heartwarming story.
I enjoyed reading Valerie’s detailed thoughts about this book and she compares it with that of Gyasi’s first book.
I like all of Ellie’s reviews and this one is no exception. Read how she talks about a book that describes the author’s lockdown experiences with an unexpected intimacy.
I like long, descriptive reviews that give me plenty to think about. See what she has to say about Normal People by Sally Rooney:
“…there are books like ‘Normal People’ – books which, from the outside, don’t seem that special, but which are so visceral and real that they alter your entire worldview. Reading this leaves you a different person when you put it down to when you picked it up.”
Talia Hibbert is the flavour of the season, so check out Leah’s review of her second book.
Fiona Leitch’s books have such yummy covers that they always make me feel hungry. I’m yet to read any of her books, but Rekha’s reviews have certainly stoked my interest.
I love children’s books and I always read reviews of such titles. It’s brilliant!
Just look at that cover art (and read the review)!
