TW: racism, slavery, rape. Welcome back! Sorry for today’s review being a little later than usual, but in good news, I’ve been for my second COVID-19 vaccination today, and forgot about writing this review in the excitement! I received this book in the second Feminist Book Box.
I received Their Eyes Were Watching God in the March Feminist Book Box from Hachette, which happened to be both my first book box, and the first Feminist Book Box! I was so excited it had been chosen, because I was aware of Zora Neale Hurston, and this novel, but only had it on the edges of my radar. It was one that I had heard of, and would have eventually wanted to read, but it being included in the book box gave me the perfect opportunity to read!
Today I’m bringing you a review of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which is a really well known classic children’s book. There’s also recently been a new movie adaptation of it, though I think unfortunately it’s only available from that online retailer we all hate. The book, however, is available as a free ebook from Project Gutenberg if you wanted to get yourself an ecopy!
Hello and welcome back! I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Today, I’m reviewing The Wedding of Zein by Tayeb Salih. Tayeb Salih is an author I was introduced to through my degree, and I enjoyed studying his novel Season of Migration to the North so much that I had to buy this book […]
I was so excited when Let’s Get Classical book club voted to pick Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier for their first read of 2021! I read Rebecca for the first time a few years ago, and it’s one I’ve wanted to reread for a while, but my TBR pile always makes me feel so guilty when I pick up a book to reread. Thanks to the book club, I could pick this up guilt-free!
