It’s reading wrap-up time of the month again. Last month i took a little more of a relaxed approach to the reading wrap-ups i was doing. Instead of giving you reviews of every book i had read, i wanted to just tell you what i read and wanted to discuss what i found most important. I think that’s the way forward, where really, i just want to document what i read this month.
Love, Creekwood by Becky Albertalli
Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas
I’ve purposefully chosen not to review Concrete Rose and i don;’t think i can justify reviewing any of Angie Thomas’ books. They’re excellent, well written, interesting plots with a lot of parts that are educational. I think everyone needs to read an Angie Thomas.
The Sad Ghosts Club by Lize Meddings
Can Everyone Please Calm Down? by Mae Martin
I very much love Mae Martin, so when i found out she released a book all about gender and sexuality, i knew i wanted to pick it up pretty quickly. The tone of this non-fiction book is wonderful, it’s like talking to a friend about LGBTQ+ issues, and exploring things at your own pace. It definitely fits well in the sort of ‘teen guide for adults’ category, where it’s easy to read and understand, but definitely for an adult audience.
Women Don’t Owe You Pretty by Florence Given
I have a full review / rant / chat about this book coming soon. I didn’t know what to expect, but i didn’t expect THAT. It’s a feminism book of sorts, i say of sorts as i think it probably does more harm than good. There was an awful lot of eye rolling whilst reading this.
A Vow So Bold and Deadly by Briged Kemmerer
The final installment in Briged’s retelling series finally was released, and i finished it and loved it. This series for me reminds me of lockdown in England, the first one where it was really warm and you could sit outside… I read the first two books in this series back to back, and i absolutely adored them. So to have the series finish is a little bitter sweet now. It was a great ending, with some plot points i wasn’t a huge fan of, but nothing i can’t look over for these characters.
