Hello again honeybees! Long time, no see! I have a ton of reviews I need to upload and I can’t wait to catch up–if not now then during Blogmas–and share all of those with you. In the meantime, here’s a short reading wrap up because every year my reading plummets in October and I’m not entirely sure why.
The Body Is Not An Apology: The Power of Radical Self-Love by Sonya Renee Taylor
I absolutely adored this one. It’s been on my TBR since it was a box pick for the Feminist Book Box. (I can’t afford a subscription but I add all of them to my TBR lol). The audio was done by the author and it was AMAZING. It felt like I was listening to a podcast or talking to the author one on one. There were so many amazing quotes to take from this and I really want to reread in its physical form.
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
I had to read this for my English lit class and it wasn’t the worst classic I’ve ever read. That’s about the highest praise I can give it. Lots of Jane Eyre vibes (Jane Eyre I actually did enjoy quite a bit) but the writing on this one was too much and there were so many other themes going on that I didn’t enjoy.
I was one of Goodread’s Spotlights and it’s one of the biggest honors of my life thus far. Right next to my Buzzfeed feature like??? Who am I to grace these sites. I was super nervous about this but I’m so thankful that I got this opportunity.
How was your October? Did anything fun or exciting happen? Did you read anything interesting?
