I wanna start a new series of sorts in which I tell you about the past month. Books I’ve read, music I listened to, places I visited and anything else I feel like sharing. This month I will share the books I read and my thoughts on them. And my favourite bullet journal pages of the month. So let’s start by discussing the reading I did in February 🙂
Today I really wanted to discuss a topic with you that has been on my mind for a long time: growing out of the Young Adult genre. I have been an avid reader of YA books since I was around 10 or 11 years old. I would even go as far as to say that I didn’t read anything else until about 3 years ago, and even then 90% of what I read was still YA. But lately there has been a HUGE shift in my reading taste. I rarely pick up a YA novel and when I look at the new releases, almost none of them really spark my interest. After mulling this over for a while I realised this had several different reasons.
Title: Little Black Book – a toolkit for working women
Author: Otegha Uwagba
Release date: June 15th, 2017
Publisher: 4th Estate
Rating: 5/5 stars
This little book was gifted to me as a going away present a while back and I was immediately drawn to it. Everything about this book just pulled me towards it. The millennial pink cover with a sleek design, the promise of tips for women in the creative industry. I couldn’t wait to get into it. It took me a day to finish and I am sure I will find myself picking it up again soon.
The new year is upon us and that means I get to set my new yearly goals! This post specifically will be dedicated to my reading goals.
Happy New Year!
I finished 2017 off pretty strong when it comes to reading. I managed to read 8 books in the month of December (my second best month, I just couldn’t beat the 13 books I read in July) and in this post up I will tell you what I thought about them. So if that sounds interesting to you then keep reading.
