Here’s my first post about my monthly Wrap-up: AUGUST!
I don’t insanely read during the holidays if I’m in an actual vacation as it happened this year: I’ve been in Liverpool and Scotland, when I visit a new city I tend to live the moment and the city so I don’t hide my face behind a book except when I’m on a train or airplane.
So here we are.
- The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh ★★★
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman ★★
- What a girl gotta do by Holly Bourne ★★★★
- Harry Potter and The cursed child by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany ★★★★
- The beginning woods by Malcolm McNeill ★★★
I know this wrap-up seems pretty ridiculous compared to a lot of bookworms, but I’m pretty proud of it. I stayed home for only 4 days and I watched a lot of tvshows so… YAY ME!
“WHAT’S A GIRL GOTTA DO” by Holly Bourne (REVIEW)
Holly is always a guarantee of satisfaction for me. I’m so glad I discover her books this year, they’re so full of strength, mental health awareness, feminism and Harry Potter: serious columns in my life. The book tells the story of Lottie who decides to step up and fight against every form of sexism by calling it out in public with the power of horns.
Buy ‘What a girl gotta do?’ now.
“AMERICAN GODS” by Neil Gaiman (REVIEW)
I still can’t get over the disappointment on reading this book. I expected such great things from this book and I had to face a complete different story and got pretty bored and confused with it! I was on the airplane and start to watch the clouds in order to not keep reading the book! SO DISAPPOINTED FROM MR. GAIMAN, I’ll definitely catch another one, I’m not giving up on him.
“HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD” by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany
I still haven’t write a review about it because I don’t know what actually write about without giving away too much. I’m just gonna say that I had ZERO expectations about this story and I remain pretty surprised, especially for all the feelings that it’s been able to woken up. I really enjoyed it — of course, you don’t have to see it as another Harry Potter book but as a theatre play — and I hope I will be able to watch it live in the future.
