This month I am trying to clear my #netgalley tbr. Therefore, you will be seeing a lot of short or joint reviews. I don’t find them enjoyable to write and hopefully, after this month, I will to more exciting things with this relaunched site. I will tell you more later. But, for this month, this is going to be what we will be doing. First a few books that I dnf’d. I received these books from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
The Library of Ice
Readings from a Cold Climate
by Nancy Campbell
Pub Date 1 Nov 2018
In theory, I should have really liked this book. It has gorgeous prose and a brilliant subject. However, I Attempted to read it on several occasions and failed. I can’t put my finger on why, but I just couldn’t get into this book.
Fight Like A Girl
by Clementine Ford
Pub Date 20 Sep 2018
I thought I would enjoy this book. I have an interest in the subject. In fact, I took a BA Hons degree, and higher degrees, in women’s studies. However, this felt a little 101 and I was bored. If you are new to feminism, and need an introduction, this could be useful. However, if you are advanced in your feminism, then I’d look elsewhere
The Labyrinth of the Spirits
From the bestselling author of The Shadow of the Wind
by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
I really liked the author’s earlier works. However, I don’t know if I read this book at the wrong time, but it just couldn’t grasp my attention. It’s a perfectly serviceable book, but it lost me.
From Slave Cabins to the White House
Homemade Citizenship in African American Culture
by Koritha Mitchell
Pub Date 15 Oct 2020
This should have been my kind of book. I really like the subject matter. But, it may have been the time when I tried to read it, I just couldn’t get into it.
