The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – Thoughts

I am a sucker for dystopian fiction, so I knew I would enjoy this book when I did get to read it. Why I hadn’t read it until now, was because of the subject of the book. The fact that I listened to the audiobook version narrated by the lovely Elisabeth Moss, slightly softened theContinue reading “The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – Thoughts”

Saris and the City by Rekha Waheed – Thoughts

I skim read this book, once I was half way through and realised I wasnt invested in the story or any of the characters at all. For me, that’s as good as DNF-ing the book. This book was one of the South Asian Reading Challenge backlist BOTM for February and I really wanted to likeContinue reading “Saris and the City by Rekha Waheed – Thoughts”

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones – Thoughts

No book is really worth reading at the age of ten, which is not equally, and often, far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond – C.S. Lewis Although I’m not fifty yet, I’m learning to appreciate the wise words of C.S Lewis, now that I have discovered and loved theContinue reading “Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones – Thoughts”

Book two in the Orisha trilogy and the sequel for ‘Children of Blood and Bone’.

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo

This action will have no echo But this book and this duology and these characters have left behind a long lasting echo in my heart. What a splendid sequel!
