So, I read Ursula K. Le Guin’s Left Hand of Darkness a while back- I think it was last year. Truth be told, I didn’t really like it… That might have been because my reading experience was kind of lacking, and also I read a translation. You know how well I do with those. Earlier last month, I picked up The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas from her- I’d heard mostly good stuff about it, but I have to be honest with you. I probably wouldn’t have picked it up had it not been for BTS’ Spring Day. As a part of the theory-making side of the fandom, I had to get my hands on it. In short, it didn’t disappoint.
Today I’m coming back to you with yet another review! I’ve seemed to really catch up on these lately, finally. Today’s book is something you’re all probably familiar with- if you haven’t read it, you’ve most likely heard about it. We’ll be taking a look at a lil extra somethin-somethin from the Harry Potter world- this book is mentioned in the actual series, and I was really excited when J.K. Rowling came out with it!
I read this book a while ago and, although I have to admit to going through the comments on its Goodreads page and finding only mostly negativity, I still haven’t changed my mind about it. I love the book! Let’s get into the review for more in-depth thoughts. Disclaimer: it won’t follow my usual format, as it is a self-help book and I can’t really talk characters and plot here.
So, I’ve barely finished this book at the moment of writing this. I binged more than three quarters of it last night, out of angst and the least bit of self-pity (remember that competition I had? yeah, it didn’t turn out pretty, and the only thing I wanted to do afterwards was read this and listen to music- and that’s exactly what I did).
I’m coming back to you with another book review! Today’s book is Alabama Irish by James Russell Lingerfelt. Disclaimer: this book was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review- all thoughts are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
Back with a review this time! Phew, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted one. I’ve read this for the book club I’m organizing at my school back in January- I wasn’t going to post a review for it, but a tiny comment on a post a while back changed my mind. You guys ask, I deliver!
I read this book back in January, but it stuck with me enough for me to review it, even if I’m a bit late. This is one of those books that I will probably, at some moment in my life, be seen shoving into people’s hands and yelling at them to read it. It’s the perfect book to combat ignorance. Trust me when I say you won’t be able to see the world in the same way as you did before reading this. It’s quite the refresh button for your priorities and ambitions. Keep reading for more in-depth thoughts!
Since this is a poetry book, I don’t think there’s any need for me to say that my usual reviewing method won’t quite work- there are no characters, there is no plot- these are just thoughts spilled on paper. They’re something I enjoy reading, but something that might not quite be others’ cup of tea. Keep reading for the review!
This book was sent to me from the lovely guys over at The Book Publicist, and I’m honestly so grateful for having received it- I don’t know how I would’ve came in contact with it otherwise. It was a really interesting read, written in a quirky, unique way (that I really enjoyed, so it’s all good here!) and it touches some hugely important points! Enjoy the post!
Ever since I finished this book (read: an hour ago, as of writing this), I’ve been wondering how to go about reviewing it. I don’t know what could do it justice- my words seem lacking for this. As a book blogger, though, I have to give it a try. Let’s begin. Enjoy the last day of Blogmas! It's been a ride, folks.
