It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and wrote a blog post. My brain has been scrambled and honestly, I’ve barely been reading lately. I cannot remember the last book I read! That’s why my big post back is a haul of books I certainly didn’t need.
The world is still crazy, and dangerous, and everything else that 2020 has been. I have barely left the house, and have been the most careful this year. Me and my boyfriend both needed a little book shop recently, so we headed out and here’s what I got:
- I Am Heathcliff curated by Kate Mosse
- The Sing Of The Shore by Lucy Wood
- Fragile Lives by Professor Stephen Westaby
- The Word For World Is Forest by Ursula K. Le Guin
- The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
- Taking The Arow Out Of The Heart by Alice Walker
- Hold The Dark by William Giraldi
- The Innocent Man by John Grisham
- Cemetary Boys by Aiden Thomas
I wanted to focus on getting some more fiction books over anything YA, and luckily I found some short ones here that might pull me out of my slump.
All these books are ones that I’m excited to get to soon, i fell in love with Alice Walker’s writing as we did The Colour Purple at the beginning of 2020 for our LGBTQ+ book club. I also swapped out my copy of The Yellow Wallpaper for this bind-up of that and other short storiesby Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
I have a big break off over Christmas, so am planning to spend a lot of my time reading, and i really hope i’m a little less slumpy than i have been recently!
