Five books this week – an improvement on last week! I adored Rosie Waterland’s Every Lie I’ve Ever Told and Not Just Lucky – both brilliant female memoirs which inspired me to live my best life! I’m really into non-fiction at the moment. I reread Nevernight which was just as brilliant as I remembered.
Not Just Lucky – Jamila Rizvi (Australian author) (4 stars)
A brilliant book about the experience of being a woman in the Australian workforce. It has inspired me to re-evaluate how I interact with other people in my job, how often I apologise for not being able to do things quickly enough, and it has inspired me to consider talking to people about money (something I am not very comfortable with…). Jamila Rizvi’s style of writing is accessible and interesting; it feels like you’re having a wine with a good friend and she is giving you some incredibly valuable life advice.
Nevernight – Jay Kristoff (Australian author) (5 stars)
Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
Soooooo, I went completely and utterly overboard this week…. OOPS! 18 new books! Not entirely sure when I am going to find the time to read them all! What are your best reading tips???
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Gryffindor – J. K. Rowling
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Slytherin – J. K. Rowling
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Hufflepuff – J. K. Rowling
I may have ordered myself all the paperbacks…. Hehehehe! Unfortunately, my house (Ravenclaw) is the only one that didn’t arrive this week! They’re so pretty, but I am seriously going to need a new bookshelf to fill entirely with Harry Potters.
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J. K. Rowling
ANOTHER edition! I love these slipcase editions. The final two should be in my hands sometime in the very, very near future! *party*
