This post is an opportunity to recap the past week on my blog and in my personal life. It’s also a chance to set up some goals for the upcoming week and share the music/films/TV shows/podcasts that I’ve loved this week.
Quarantine/lockdown/whatever you want to call it has been odd so far. We had some lovely weather in the UK this week so I actually spent a lot of time in the garden tending to the new plants and reading. I finished three books and I contemplated starting a fourth but I couldn’t decide what to read next so I’ll probably wait until tomorrow. I’m stuck between How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee and Giant’s Bread by Mary Westmacott (aka Agatha Christie).
I also continued to work on the final chapter of my PhD thesis and I even managed to play Animal Crossing every single day. Working from home has been working well for me this week and I hope this productivity continues.
- Books I Need to Read by Women of Colour
- Top Ten Tuesday: Classics by Women Writers on my TBR
- Book Review: Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
- Book Review: The Color Purple by Alice Walker
- Book Review: The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
- Favourite Twentieth-Century Women Writers
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata – This is one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a while. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I will read it again at some point in the future.
The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton – What a sad novel! The plot was rather bleak but I liked Wharton’s writing a lot and I do think I’ll read more of her work in the future.
Middlemarch by George Eliot – I finished this book a couple of hours ago and I will have a review up by the end of the month!
I hope everyone is safe and healthy and I wish you all a wonderful week.
