My Views on Book Reviews

Chat HeaderI have felt very inspired to read recently but much less inspired to write and I think this is due to a little creative dip. I can’t really think of different types of posts to write that I am excited about. Of course, book reviews are one of the main types of posts that bloggers upload but I’m really not feeling inspired to write reviews right now, even though I do really want to write about the books I’ve read recently.

Wonderland by Juno Dawson

Review HeaderI was recently gifted an early copy of Juno Dawson’s latest book, Wonderland, a fantastically extravagant take on Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

I decided I had to write about the portrayal of fandoms – it’s a topic I’m very passionate about and I couldn’t wait to write down my thoughts.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Review HeaderNever Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro has been one of my favourite books for many years now – the film is also a favourite of mine! It’s a story I think about fairly often and the three main characters have stayed with me, always feeling very real and unforgettable. I recently reread the book which I think is the third time I have read it now and wanted to give a review as I don’t think I have ever reviewed this novel before!
