500 Followers + 5 Blog Posts to Check Out

Hi there! I was always planning on doing this post, sharing some of my favourite book reviews from around the blogosphere. But then I got a notification telling me I’d reached 500 followers, and so I thought I would also celebrate that as well 🙂

Thank you so much to everyone who takes the time to read my thoughts, comment on my reviews, and like my posts! 500 followers might not seem a lot to some bloggers, but I’m so happy to have reached such a milestone. Thank you again to all my followers, and for always being so welcoming and supportive ❤ ❤

So, on with what this post was actually meant to be about…

Today I thought I would share some of my favourite book reviews that I’ve read in the past couple of weeks. All of these are brilliantly written, and I recommend them as some fantastic reading this Sunday 🙂

I got this idea when I read a post by nickimags, and Paula also gave me the idea to do my own post, sharing links to reviews across the blogosphere 🙂

1. ‘The Penelopiad’ by Margaret Atwood– reviewed by Alyssa Grace

This is a fantastic review of Margaret Atwood’s novella about the not-so-famous character from Greek mythology, Penelope. In true Atwood style, she reclaims this figure and gives her a story which better befits her. I hadn’t heard of this book until I read this review, and now I can’t wait to read it!

2. ’10 things you need to know about feminism’– post by sophiaismaa

I loved reading this post, as I found it so relatable! I read this quite a few weeks ago now, but it was so interesting and fantastic to find someone who said the same things as I did. I always like it when I find a post which speaks directly to me, and it’s lovely to have a discussion about important issues with other bloggers. Check out this post now!

3. ‘My Cousin Rachel’ by Daphne Du Maurier– reviewed by E. F. Sunland

I love Daphne Du Maurier, and I thought E. F. Sunland reviewed this book brilliantly! They recommended reading this book during a storm on a rainy day, curled up inside. I definitely agree with this recommendation, as I love reading Du Maurier’s books on cold, rainy days 🙂

4. ‘Ash Princess’ by Laura Sebastian– reviewed by  JenAcideByBibliophile

This was a brilliant review, and I liked how much detail the reviewer went into! While long reviews are not something a reviewer wants to write all the time, I think mixing up shorter and longer reviews is a great idea, and this was a fantastic, in-depth look at ‘Ash Princess.’

5. ‘The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie’ by Muriel Spark– reviewed by FictionFan

I actually read this review a while back, but I really liked it! I’ve wanted to read this book for ages, and still I haven’t got round to it. This blogger does a lot of classic reviews- which I love, seeing as I really like classics- so go check her posts out now! And maybe one day, I’ll pick up a copy of ‘The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie’….

Thanks for dropping by this Sunday! Check out my latest review here and stay tuned for another review, coming next Friday 🙂

Have you read any of these books? Are you going to check out these brilliant reviews?  What blog posts should I read this week?
