My #ReadingRush TBR

This year I finally decided to take part in The Reading Rush (formerly known as BookTubeAThon), mainly because I’m profoundly masochistic. Just kidding! It’s because I love reading!

#GraphicNovelApril

It’s almost the end of April, the weather in the UK is awful only like half of the time, and I decided anyway that it’s spring time so I’m wearing spring clothes, regardless the outside temperature. So you know what that means…

The Miseducation of Cameron Post, by Emily Danforth

Oh boy. Ooooooh boy. Where to start. Well then, let’s start by saying I didn’t think I’d like this book so much. Which is saying something, because I started reading it with fairly high expectations. Make no mistake, I was not expecting this book to completely change the way I see the world or to…

#GraphicNovelMarch

No, it’s not a belated April’s Fool’s joke, it’s actually me! I’m finally back from my 3 month hibernation where I found a job, moved to another country and, alas, didn’t have a lot of time to dedicate to this!

Top 5 Books I Read in 2018

It’s that odd week sandwiched between Christmas and New Year’s Eve where you find yourself sitting on the loo, scrolling through social media and feeling a sharp pang of existential dread when you realise it’s going to be 2019 in 5 days. And how on this godforsaken Earth did that happen?

Le 3 letture peggiori del 2018

Generalmente alla fine di un anno di letture mi piace riflettere su quali siano state le più grandi sorprese letterarie, e quali le più grandi delusioni. L’anno scorso i due titoli in cima alle due liste erano rispettivamente: A che punto è la notte di Fruttero & Lucentini (capolavoro Santamaria sposami) e Abito di piume…

#GrinchReview: “Come fermare il tempo” di Matt Haig

[English version!] Con l’avvicinarsi del Natale, si sa, ci piace pensarci tutti più buoni. Certo, fare recensioni positive ed entusiastiche ci fa sentire in pace col mondo, ma ogni tanto è il caso anche di fare i cattivi e parlare  dei libri che non ci sono piaciuti. Nella Top 3 dei libri peggiori letti nel…

#GrinchReview: “How to Stop Time” by Matt Haig

[Versione italiana!] What is it about popular books that makes you feel bad if you don’t end up liking them? Probably just a truckload of disappointment.  Love is where you find the meaning. Those seven years I was with her contained more than anything else. Do you understand? You can take all the years before…

Consigli: 5 libri nella mia wishlist natalizia

È ufficiale, mancano meno di dieci giorni a Natale. La zona cesarini, il miglio verde, l’ultima ora. Sia che voi stiate indossando a ruota la vostra ampia collezione di maglioni di Natale già da settembre, sia che il primo vocalizzo di All I Want For Christmas vi faccia venire l’urticaria, una cosa è certa: ai regali…

“Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine” by Gail Honeyman

The first thing I feel I should say about Eleanor Oliphant is that it’s completely different from what I expected. I went into it expecting either a) a literary fiction book about loneliness in the modern age or b) a Bridget Jones-style fake memoir of a lonely single woman. In short, I thought Eleanor Oliphant…
