Summer is over. Autumn is here. Did I read any of the books I mentioned in my Summer 2021 TBR post? Let’s find out…
Books I Read
I really enjoyed this one! It’s a beautiful, lyrical retelling of the creation story of the Gĩkũyũ clans and I was captivated by it. I don’t think it’ll be for everyone but, as I said in my review, I’d recommend looking at a preview if there’s one available on Amazon or another website to see if it appeals to you.
Just like the wonderful cover, this collection of stories by Mariana Enriquez was weird, unsettling, and, at times, disturbing. I’ll be posting my review will be up at the beginning of October. I did want to have it up this month (September) but I’m still working on the review.
Poirot got upstaged by a dog called Bob and I loved every moment of it. To be serious though, this was a very fun mystery with a fantastic cast of characters and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
One word to describe this book: bittersweet. I loved it and I’m so glad it was recommended to me. It was just so sweet and sad and tender. Brilliant. Just brilliant.
Listen, I’m not a big fan of Austen’s work. We have a complicated relationship. But, despite that, I really enjoyed Pride and Prejudice. I can see why people love it so much and while it didn’t turn me into an Austen stan, I’ve finally found an Austen novel that I will willingly re-read.
I think this was my favourite book from my summer TBR. I’ll be forever grateful to the person who recommended this book to me because it was utterly fantastic and I loved it. Do yourself a favour and pick this one up if you haven’t already.
This one was a bit weird. Not what I was expecting at all. I’m still figuring out how I feel about it and I might need to re-read sections before I actually review it.
I don’t read non-fiction or philosophical works very often but I found this collection very interesting. Did it give me PhD thesis introduction vibes? Yes but the essays on sleep and dreams were fascinating and I’m glad I picked it up.
Oh, what a character Moll is! I didn’t love the writing (damn you, Defoe) but I loved the story and the characterisation of Moll.
This was a strange book but I liked it a lot. Very experimental. I have so much to say about it but I’ll leave that for my upcoming review.
Can you believe I actually read everything on my Summer TBR? No, me either. I hope I have as much success with my Autumn TBR.
