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.
Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Today, I’m talking about Missing by Alison Moore. This review is a bit shorter than usual I’m afraid, because I’m super worn down from being back at work, and having had a busy week generally!
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!
For once, I’m actually reviewing a book not long after it was released! I’ve read some of Kazuo Ishiguro’s other work and enjoyed it, so I preordered Klara and the Sun a few weeks before it was released. I knew it was speculative fiction, which isn’t a genre I usually read, but it’s one that I definitely want to read more of. And this book didn’t disappoint!
