Mid-Year Bookish Favourites

Mid-Year Bookish Favourites

I’m pleased to say that so far this year I have read 73 books out of my target of 100 (according to Goodreads that’s 17 books ahead of schedule). I have decided that  it’s time to share with you a list of my favourite reads from various categories and genres. I recommend every book on this list and absolutely insist that you immediately buy and read all of them.

Favourite New Fantasy Series

theblackprism

Brent Weeks is a genius. His Lightbringer series is completely refreshing and individual, the magic system is based on converting, or drafting, light to make tangible things. You can read my full review of the first book, The Black Prism, here. There are currently three books released (all over 700 pages in length) and book four is due to be release on October 25th this year! Excited doesn’t even cover it.

Book Review: Moranifesto by Caitlin Moran

Book Review: Moranifesto by Caitlin Moran

I have had the best time listening to Moranifesto. This book by Caitlin Moran is comprised of loads of her columns from the past few years. It covers a huge range of topics, to name a few: feminism, politics, the working classes, periods, and Benedict Cumberbatch. It was my book club’s pick of the month and I am so glad we chose it. (You can check out the club’s Facebook page, S.P.E.W., here.)

Book Review: You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost)

Book Review: You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost)

It is very rare that I pick up a memoir, but after binge watching The Guild on YouTube I just had to get a copy of Felicia Day’s: You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost). I decided to go for the audiobook as I had a credit left on Audible and I knew the book was narrated by Felicia. I am so glad I did!
