Hi there! I was always planning on doing this post, sharing some of my favourite book reviews from around the blogosphere. But then I got a notification telling me I’d reached 500 followers, and so I thought I would also celebrate that as well 🙂
Thank you so much to everyone who takes the time to read my thoughts, comment on my reviews, and like my posts! 500 followers might not seem a lot to some bloggers, but I’m so happy to have reached such a milestone. Thank you again to all my followers, and for always being so welcoming and supportive ❤ ❤
So, on with what this post was actually meant to be about…
Today I thought I would share some of my favourite book reviews that I’ve read in the past couple of weeks. All of these are brilliantly written, and I recommend them as some fantastic reading this Sunday 🙂
1. ‘The Penelopiad’ by Margaret Atwood– reviewed by Alyssa Grace
This is a fantastic review of Margaret Atwood’s novella about the not-so-famous character from Greek mythology, Penelope. In true Atwood style, she reclaims this figure and gives her a story which better befits her. I hadn’t heard of this book until I read this review, and now I can’t wait to read it!
2. ’10 things you need to know about feminism’– post by sophiaismaa
I loved reading this post, as I found it so relatable! I read this quite a few weeks ago now, but it was so interesting and fantastic to find someone who said the same things as I did. I always like it when I find a post which speaks directly to me, and it’s lovely to have a discussion about important issues with other bloggers. Check out this post now!
3. ‘My Cousin Rachel’ by Daphne Du Maurier– reviewed by E. F. Sunland
I love Daphne Du Maurier, and I thought E. F. Sunland reviewed this book brilliantly! They recommended reading this book during a storm on a rainy day, curled up inside. I definitely agree with this recommendation, as I love reading Du Maurier’s books on cold, rainy days 🙂
4. ‘Ash Princess’ by Laura Sebastian– reviewed by JenAcideByBibliophile
This was a brilliant review, and I liked how much detail the reviewer went into! While long reviews are not something a reviewer wants to write all the time, I think mixing up shorter and longer reviews is a great idea, and this was a fantastic, in-depth look at ‘Ash Princess.’
5. ‘The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie’ by Muriel Spark– reviewed by FictionFan
I actually read this review a while back, but I really liked it! I’ve wanted to read this book for ages, and still I haven’t got round to it. This blogger does a lot of classic reviews- which I love, seeing as I really like classics- so go check her posts out now! And maybe one day, I’ll pick up a copy of ‘The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie’….
Thanks for dropping by this Sunday! Check out my latest review here and stay tuned for another review, coming next Friday 🙂
