If we were having coffee, we’d sit outside in the glorious sunshine. I’ve cleaned the patio and garden furniture, and the trees are finally blooming again so it’s an explosion of green out here. The grass is a bit high, but I love a wild garden. It’s pretty and whimsical, and there are spring flowers like daffodils and crocus flowers everywhere.
If we were having coffee, we’d inevitably talk about books while sipping our brews. What have you read this week?
I’d tell you that I’ve read some NetGalley ARC’s I recently got access to. One was a travelogue called Last Tango in Buenos Aires, the other was a poetry collection called Leave This Song Behind. Being a travel writer myself, I really liked Last Tango. It’s been a while since I read a proper travelogue, and I’ve gottwo more on my To-Read/Review list: Braving It and Street of Eternal Happiness. I’m usually not one for poetry and it’s been years since I last looked at a poetry collection. And I have mixed feelings about Leave This Song Behind. While some were really good, others came across as pretentious, and more than once I was left baffled whether such a random collection of words could really be called poetry. My reviews will follow soon.
I’ve been quite busy with the A to Z Challenge. This week was the first proper week, and I’ve written reviews for Cross Bones, Down Under, Everything Is Illuminated, Fahrenheit 451, Gulliver’s Travels and Holy Cow. It’s going quite well, and I’ve now actually found a book for every letter!
Have you seen my Instagram A-Z Challenge yet? For every book I review on the Challenge, I’m trying to get a cover picture as well (as long as I still have the book).
Over the next few days and weeks, I will be posting more reviews with the #60Books hashtag. My own Reading Challenge is for 60 Books according to various topics, and I started reading and reviewing on my other blog. Whenever I have a bit of free-time, I will migrate the reviews over to Literati Girl.
Thank you for having coffee with me. Same time, next week?
