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!!!

Because POETRY!

It was ok.

At long last I GOTTA ZOOoooOOM.

Did you watch Good Omens? Any idea where is the end I should start reading The Discworld from?

LET ME KNOW.

    1. I love the show more and yOU KNOW IT!!! and the fandom is so good. so pure. so talented.
      From Gaiman I’ve read Coraline…and….was not impressed….honestly whoops maybe I was too young and it flew over my head or the translation was just horrible. Still very much interested in The Ocean At The End of The Lane!!!!
      Daisy Johnes was read as an ebook because audiobooks are waaaayyyy too expensive and no library here can have such thing.

  2. I’m a little nervous about Daisy Jones because of the format it’s told in, but I adored Evelyn Hugo by the author SO much, I’m very excited to read more just as well? I’m confuuuuuuused.
    I hope you’ve been well, happy reading ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Ahh yes the confused feeling!! I get youuu I was also a bit iffy but IT’S GOOD!!! Try the audiobook if nothing else, it’s being praised all over the place so maybe it is That Good. But I know audibooks can be hard to come by. Best of luck with it, hopefully you’ll love it more than I 😂 !!!

    1. The show is amazing and I love it so much!!!!! Honestly, I didn’t connect to the book half as much as I expected, and I was only there for Crowley and Aziraphel – which there is plenty of in the TV show and Michael Sheen and Devid Tennant do A FANTASTIC JOB of bringing them to life! It’s so weird not to like such a cult classic though, yet here we are, in a club of 2 against the die-hard book fans 😂.

  3. aahhh i’m so sorry you never really liked a gaiman novel – the graveyard book is one of my favorites. i have never read any of his adult novels though so perhaps i wouldn’t like good omens as much. i also wholeheartedly agree with ilsa’s opinion on the cover of the beginning of the world in the middle of the night – it’s one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever laid my eyes upon!

    1. I’ve read half of The Graveyard Book graphic novel and I really liked the story so who knows maybe I’ll join the love puddle soon. And yes that cover is truly stunning and it becomes even more perfect when you know that all the small elements of it actually have relevance to every short story inside! shallow admission but, in a moment of weakness, I did buy it because of the cover a little bit as well.
