Weekly Recap August 2017 #3

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)

FullSizeRender 26

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)

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:

  • 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*
