This is a bi (f/f) retelling of The Little Mermaid with influences of Norse Mythology. It's a short, fast paced book full of surprises. I liked it, the moral ambiguity, the diversity, the fact that you could recognise the original story and that it was unpredictable at the same time. I loved the sexism that got challenged and the plans to overthrow the patriarchy. #girlpower
I absolutely loved this book. It's the story of Ramona, a tall, blue haired girl who lives in a trailer with her father, recently pregnant sister and her sister's boyfriend. She's struggling, with life, with love, with money, with family. She's real, and I love her.
I have so many good and wonderful things to say about this book! It was an absolute gem. If you're one of the few who hasn't heard of it or hasn't read it, you've now found your perfect summer book: A super cute contemporary full of love and diversity, with important topics and conversations, delightful to read.
This is a short, quick read about Jess Pike, an author who signs the lease for a cottage without having seen it in person. Even though it's rundown and has a lot of mystery surrounding it, she quickly falls in love with Enysyule, the cat who lives there and the village she now lives in. But then the history and secrets surrounding her new home catch up on her and she has to fight for its future.
When I read hauls, I am always wondering where everyone else gets their books (especially if we're talking about uncommon editions), why they picked them and how they can afford so many. So I thought I would specify all those things for you, in case you were weirdly interested like me 😊 If you click the title of the book, it will send you to the site where I bought it (or where it can be bought, if I didn't purchase it myself).
From the bottom up
This is the story about five Australian girls going on a big, awesome backpacking adventure. That is until it turns out that Kit, the glue of the group, the girl who brought them together and knows all of them, can't go. Now the other four girls have an added stress factor to this holiday, and that while each of them already has their own worries.
Definitely the best book so far.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It has a Jewish MC and a wonderful hate to love relationship. The growth, both in the relationship as in the characters themselves, was wonderful.
Apparently, none of the books I've read over the last two months are available to take pictures with. They were all either ebooks or borrowed, so yeah 🙈😊
This was an interesting period. At the end of March, I started getting out of my reading slump and I was going strong until half April. After that, I spent six weeks in the hospital because of mental health issues. Predictably, this exhausted me completely and I read practically nothing anymore. So here's a combined wrap-up of April and May, in which I read 12 books.
