Update + TBR

Hey guys! I'm back today with a lot of  book titles that I want to discuss. Books I'm reading, my TBR list, books I'm buying, and books I've just read.

Talkin' About: What is more important than books?

Books and Life: The Connection
Hello everyone! Today I have a little different talkin' about discussion post. I am not discussing any particular aspect of books/questions that have to do with certain topics found in books but rather what books mean to me, how they have been slowly going away (NOOOO) in my busy life, and all the concerns that come with it. 

26 CLASSICS: Things Fall Apart Review #7

Title: Things Fall Apart
Author: Chinua Achebe
Genre: Classics

Blurb: Things Fall Apart tells two intertwining stories, both centering on Okonkwo, a “strong man” of an Ibo village in Nigeria. The first, a powerful fable of the immemorial conflict between the individual and society, traces Okonkwo’s fall from grace with the tribal world. The second, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of Okonkwo's world with the arrival of aggressive European missionaries. These perfectly harmonized twin dramas are informed by an awareness capable of encompassing at once the life of nature, human history, and the mysterious compulsions of the soul.

How to Be a Woman Review

Title: How to Be a Woman
Author: Caitlin Moran
Publisher: Ebury Press
Genre: Nonfiction

Blurb: Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

Bookish DIY: Conversation Flannels

Hey everyone! Today I'm here with something really fun and exciting...a DIY! I honestly love expressing my bookish love through anything possible, hence the overload of merchandise in my closet and my room. This is something I did awhile back that I got quite a lot of compliments on. 

26 CLASSICS: The Metamorphosis Review #6

Title: The Metamorphosis
Author: Franz Kafka
Genre: Classics, Magic Realism 

Blurb:  Kafka begins his masterpiece, The Metamorphosis. It is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetle-like insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing -- though absurdly comic -- meditation on human feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction.
