You know how they say – Sun’s out, BOOKS out…
….because on here we defy society’s expectations of my gender to strip down in minimal clothing and feel bad about my body and choose to instead use my wonderful eyeballs to acquire knowledge and experience some awesomestuff books.
Yeah that’s what they say.
Anyway, let’s leave the patriarchy and my own “i’m not like those other girls”* rants aside and get back to the object of mirth – BOOKS.
*hopefully the dripping satire was evident mate
So let me figure out how to make this quick because, as they say in those youtube videos, I have places to be in a limited rather short mount of time.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid : Bands + the 70s + struggles of humans
While I like this book more than some people, I also like it less than many others. There are some emotional moments but the format made me care about only 30% of the cast.
It did introduce me to Fleetwood Mac though so let it not be said my time was lost.
The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night by Jen Campbell : Fairytales + magical realism + metaphors or metaphors
Jen’s youtube channel is one of my favourites and it always throws me in the pit of her miscellaneous interests ergo I had to read her book and see what it was all about.
What is was all about is hearts in boxes, flower girls, names of colours in code, disability and fun facts.
Again, liked some, disliked some, were confused by many. Still an interesting read.
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman : Angels + demons + british humour
I never really found a Gaiman book to love and this was no exception in the grey, kind-of-meh-and-disappointingly-so category.
Never thought I’d say this but – the show was better.
I’ll wait for my guillotine now.
Carusel (eng: carousel) by Ioana Gruia : Poetry!!!
It was ok.
At long last I GOTTA ZOOoooOOM.
