It’s Sunday so it’s time for my weekly wrap up, where I share what I’ve done and read!
I haven’t done much this week except read and watch TV. I finished the adaptation of Normal People and wrote a post comparing it to the book (coming soon!). I also watched It’s a Sin, a show about the AIDS crisis in the 80s, which I’ll talk more about in my monthly wrap up. I caught up on Ru Paul’s Drag Race as well and watched previous seasons – it’s my comfort show. I’ve been on more walks because the weather’s been so nice, and listened to podcasts while I walked. I’m back at online school after a week off, so my reading has suffered a bit while I’ve adjusted again (I forgot how tiring it is!).
These are the posts on my blog this week:
Next week, I’m posting my February Wrap Up and review of Shadow and Bone!
My Week in Books
Much less books this week!
I read Last Night at the Telegraph Club this week, and I’ve realised how much I need queer historical fiction books because this was amazing. I gave it 4 stars overall, because I loved Lily’s discovery of her identity, the sapphic romance and the historical backdrop, but there were a few plotlines or aspects of the story that didn’t feel fully explored by the end. Highly recommend this though! I’ll be attempting to write a review some time in the future.
I started Transcendent Kingdom and it would be great if I could finish by the end of this week and therefore end of the month but we’ll see! Yaa Gyasi’s writing style is beautiful as ever and I love the exploration of science, religion, grief and mental illness in families. It’s very different from Homegoing but I’m enjoying it so far.
Thanks for reading! How was your week?
I’ve heard so many good things about Last Night at the Telegraph Club and that cover is STUNNING – definitely adding it to my TBR! Hope you have a great March! ♥
