TransPitch #1: Goliath, by Tom Gauld

“Is someone going to come out and fight you now?” “I hope not.” Goliath is Tom Gauld’s first graphic novel and it is a retelling of the Biblical myth from the point of view of Goliath himself. It is also the only graphic novel by Gauld that has not been translated into Italian yet. I…

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!

Mid-Year Book Tag

June rolled around and hit me in the face like a truck hitting a mosquito on the motorway. Anyone else? Good. To feel less useless, I thought I’d do the Mid-Year Book Tag to try and have an overview of what I’ve read so far this year and make sure I stay on track. For…

3 LGBT+ Books I Read and 3 Books I Want to Read

It’s finally June! The sun is shining (well, not in the UK, but I’m assuming it must be somewhere), days are getting longer and longer, but most importantly… it’s Pride Month! Happy Pride to everyone in the LGBT+ community, and thank you for your support to all the allies out there. And what better way…

“Motherhood” by Sheila Heti

I wish this review could consist of me quoting the entire book to you by screaming it at the top of my lungs. Alas, that would be a bit dificult (not to mention mildly frightening) so we’re stuck to pen on paper – or… bytes on screen, I guess? “Why are we still having children?…

#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?

#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…
