Favourite Review

Amber @ Bibliomavens – Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I’ve had a copy of this book sat on my shelf for a while now, but Amber’s review just makes me want to throw my TBR out of the window and pick it up straight away! Taylor Jenkins Reid is clearly becoming a favourite author of her’s and her love for the authors writing shines though in her review.

“This book had so much to say about a lot of things. Usually I find that books that tackle a lot of social or political issues don’t give anything enough time or get bogged down in the attempt. This book didn’t do that. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo gave everything its due. It talked about feminism and claiming female power in the era of men. It had LGBTQ+ representation everywhere and explored those struggles in the mid 1900s. It also discussed racism, divorce, the media, and so much more in a nuanced and believable way.”

Favourite Tag/Meme

Dini @ Dinipandareads – #TopTenTuesday: I Liked It… But I Can’t Remember Much About It…

Dini is one of my all time favourite bloggers and a great bookish friend. I always love her TTT posts, and this weeks was no different. She strayed a little from the scheduled prompt and instead gave us a list of books she loved but can’t really remember! I definitely related to a few of these.

Six of Crows – I remember the basic things but the fine details (for the duology) are all gone!
Strange the Dreamer 
– Same as above but I absolutely loved the gorgeous writing!
A Thousand Pieces of You – I loved the multiverse concept but can’t remember much else.”

Favourite General Bookish

Lauren @ Lala’s Book Reviews – Asian Author Book Recs Part 2

Lauren has curated a fantastic list of books from all genre’s written by Asian authors. Some of my favourite books have made this list, and there are definitely a few on there I will be adding to my TBR.

“Hi everyone! Sometimes I forget that I have a voice in the online book community (no matter how small it might be, but a voice none the less, and today I wanted to share some more books written by Asian authors; please note that even though even though I’m trying to focus on Asian American/Pacific Islander authors, there are other Asian others who reside in other countries on this list as Asian authors in general do not get enough attention.”
