1. What are you currently reading?

Heartless

So the plan this week was to read Seven Years Gone: Unbound which is book four by the late Liz Iavorschi-Braun. Unfortunately, it was released on ebook only and it was book three with books fours cover. So after a 20-minute conversation with Amazon, they have refunded me and are going to tell me when the issue will be resolved so that I can order it again.

Anyway, I decided to read a standalone novel rather than dive headfirst into another series and since I have read the Lunar Chronicles and I have a thing for fairytale retellings Heartless seems like a good choice.

I’m currently 150 pages into it and it’s made me hungry each time I have picked it up due to the amount of talking of food and tea parties. I was hungry on page one after the talk of some Lemon Tarts. I’m not sure I can make my way through this book without the help of copious cakes and chocolate.  🥞🥧🍰🍭🍫🍿🍪

2. What did you recently finish reading?

The Exact Opposite of Okay

I finished it. It took me a while due to the recovery from my surgery causing all sorts of pressure on my face but it’s done. I did enjoy this book and after the who fantasy scene I have found myself in it was a really enjoyable read.

To go from one feminist book set in the past to one in the present I thought was a good thing as that way I had an insight and good compare the differences. I wasn’t sure whether I’d like the blog post format (ironic with the fact that i’m currently writing this on a blog) but I got used to it and I did like the subtexts and the way she had to explain things like the fact that her grandmother was talking to the dishwasher and clarified it was a person and not an appliance.

I thought this novel was true to life as men and women can do the same things but only the women will be penalised. Like Laura Steven’s writes

 “Basically, if you’re a woman, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.”

So if you would like to check out my review of The Exact Opposite of Okay you can find it here.
