A mini break

21 December 2015

As you can see content has been lacking on here and that's just due to various reasons! I won't have the time to do any posts for the rest of this month, with it being Christmas and then me going away to Dublin, so I just wanted to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and I hope you all have an awesome New Year :) xxx

December Book List

6 December 2015

Whoops, so I am just a tad bit late with getting this up – but better late than never! As it’s December and this up, I can finally do a little victory dance, because I managed to keep this up for a whole year!

I finished up reading my books for November in early December; it took me longer than expected as there were just days that I was busy so I couldn’t read. I found all the books in November’s reading list so interesting. The first thing I read was The House Girl, this was SO good. I think I really enjoyed it because it was much more than I expected it to be. I kind of wish it had a sequel or just something because in a way I really want to find out what happened beyond the book but it did end in a satisfactory way of some sort. I’d really encourage anyone who’s interested in slavery to pick this up. It has the right emotions in the book and focuses on people who were white that were helping slaves too. It switches between two periods (the time of slavery and present day in the book) but is just so very interesting. The next thing I read was Island, you’ll already know from last month that I wasn’t looking forward to this but I really ended up enjoying this. I think it’s because, as it should be, it’s very different to a brave new world. One thing I remember thinking whilst reading this book is that it literally could have been written in the past ten years, what it talks about is just so current that you can’t really put a timestamp on it. I think I found it really good because it’s a world I can get on board with; I’d whole-heartedly recommend this to everyone.
