    Stacking the Shelves – 20/02/2021

    Hey friends. Today I am bringing you this weeks Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. All you have to do is share what books you got in the previous week. You can find more information here.

    Summary: Hilarious, bold, sparky and surprising, this is the funniest feminist book you’ll read all year.

    Alex is a rebel from the tip of her purple fauxhawk to the toes of her biker boots. She’s tried everything she can think of to get expelled from her strict Catholic boarding school. Nothing has worked so far – but now, Alex has a new plan.

    Tired of the sexism she sees in every corner of St Mary’s, Alex decides to stage the school’s first ever production of The Vagina Monologues. Which is going to be a challenge, as no one else at St Mary’s can even bear to say the word ‘vagina’ out loud . . .

    Hey friends! Today I am doing this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and the topic is Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers (in honor of Mardis Gras, which is today!). I’ve picked 10 books that I have read and really enjoyed, and think you should read too. I also managed to pick some books that I don’t mention on my blog all that often, so I’m happy that I can give them some more love.

    Published by: Clink Street Publishing
    Pages: 272
    Release date: 26/01/2021
    Where to find: Goodreads | Amazon
    Summary: …an island in Japan, where bicycles, food and love mix for high adventure.

    A retired professor-poet and a young doctor-jazz singer cycle Shikoku in the Seto Inland Sea. Their wanderings unite them emotionally and physically, and help them to overcome past tragedies and to discover new lives in themselves and each other. They are aided by bicycles, cherry blossoms, wild coastlines, hot spring bathing and Japanese cuisine. They discuss love, life, art and religion. The usual conflict between good and evil is subdued, and while the love story is the motive force, it is not the only intrigue. Shikoku is a “novelogue,” not only because their adventures take place through cycling, but also because the characters undertake a voyage to a better life.

    Top Ten Tuesday: Valentine’s Day/Love Freebie

    Hey friends! Today I am doing this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and the topic is Valentine’s Day/Love Freebie. I have decided that I am going to share with you 5 romance books that I have read and enjoyed, and 5 that I want to read, hopefully soon. I don’t really read a lot of romance, so this seemed like the easiest way for me to do this post.
