Bookish Things I’ve Enjoyed This Week #4

… or just welcome if you’re new here. I’ve realised that I see a lot of book-related things around the internet that I enjoy each week and want to share them with you. This maybe books I’ve read, not read, blog posts I’ve enjoyed, or book-related articles. I’ll also include books I’ve discovered this week and would like to read in the future.

I hope you enjoy this post and let me know what your favourite bookish thing from the week was in the comments below!


Articles
  1. Has anyone else heard good things about Akwaeke Emezi’s book The Death of Vivek Oji? It’s currently on my TBR and it was interesting to get an insight into the author’s motivations behind the story.
  2. I love to know what authors are reading so I am popping back to this article on quarantine reads for inspiration when it comes to my next read.
  3. The third article is the odd one out but stay with me here! I watched Interview with a Vampire for the first time ever this week. For those of you who are not aware, the film is based on a book by Anne Rice with the same name. I am in love with this film. It’s so bad it’s brilliant, and it got me wondering how on earth Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise were cast in roles they are clearly not suited to. Thankfully they had a very young Kirsten Dunst there to save them.



Blog posts

This is a fantastic blog post from Little Sea Bear about dyslexia. It outlines what dyslexia is, what is it to have dyslexia, and things people can do or use to help them with the challenges of dyslexia. It’s a really accessible but comprehensive blog post, which I highly recommend you read. I am currently trying to work out what I need to do to make my blog more accessible and I found this post valuable.


Booktube

I’ve not watched a huge amount of booktube this week but I loved Wonderfully Bookish’s video on twin tropes. It felt fresh and original, and got me thinking about what books I’ve read with twins. I also enjoyed another book haul from Jen Campbell which contributed yet again to my TBR.

Twins in Fiction – How Are They Represented? – Wonderfully Bookish
Yes, I bought more books 📚 (I am predictable) – Jen Campbell


Flash Fiction

So, whether we (in the northern hemisphere) like it or not, the days are already getting shorter. A few weeks ago it emerged that my book light had fallen apart beyond repair so I am in the market for a new one. I have found a design I love but the reviews are pretty poor. Do you have any recommendations? Please comment or tweet me if you do!


Don’t forget to let me know in the comments what your favourite bookish discovery of the week is!
