Book recommendations to match your reading mood

ROMANCING THE SHELF

With going into lockdown many of us have hit a reading slump period. I went through that in May and let me just add that it was awful. Since then I’ve been trying to fill my time by reading books according to my mood. That’s not to say I haven’t made a tbr, I’m just choosing those books according to how I’m feeling in the moment. And if i’m not in the mood I’ll just move it to the next month or whenever I’m feeling it. I’ve put together this post with some book recommendations depending on what you’re up for!


 

Book that reads like a memoir

If you feel like reading a book that has a memoir like feel to it then I recommend giving If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha a try. Mind you the story might not really be for everyone but I found this on particularly interesting. It follows the lives of 4 Korean women. Honestly this blurb says it a lot better than I can, ‘A riveting debut novel set in contemporary Seoul, Korea, about four young women making their way in a world defined by impossibly high standards of beauty, secret room salons catering to wealthy men, strict social hierarchies, and K-pop fan mania.’

Vampires Galore | 2 weeks of Vampire content

Vampires Galore

Look at what you’ve stumbled upon.

I’ve gone through great pains to make this post. I’ve been trying to come up with new content to spice up my blog and reading. This pandemic is slowly taking away my energy to blog and university hasn’t ended completely just yet. The amount of stress is real but I had to read an arc of a vampire book and ended up falling down the rabbit hole. I wasn’t one of the readers who grew up with Twilight but it has been of the series I’ve been wanting to read just out of curiosity. The only vampire books I’ve read have been Vampire Academy and some other books that aren’t predominantly about vampires but feature them. So this was a really fun challenge to put together! (even though I ended up reading a particular series).

Today’s post is about a book that blew me away and one that made me interested in historical fiction, The Gilded Wolves. I had never read a book by Roshani Chokshi before this.

I went into this book with such high expectations (and it didn’t disappoint) and I’m here to attempt to get you to read it.
