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

52696537. sy475

 

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.’

The Raven Boys was one of my most anticipated reads for this year.

I’ve put off reading it for so long because I was worried about all the hype that was surrounding it. Since I worried so much the book ended up siting on my shelf for around 4 years. I vowed to read it this year, and I finally did! The Raven Boys was an interesting read. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I was told the books after are even better than the first. I’ve already started The Dream Thieves!

So, if you need motivation to start this wonderful book, keep scrolling!

  • IMG_4574 - Copy (2) The Characters

I believe that this book is very character driven which is one of the things I love. Not that it doesn’t have a plot, but you get to know each Raven boy in their own way. Also, most importantly we have Blue our main character. I really felt attached to the characters, and fell in love with them all pretty quickly.

Blue is eccentric with her very own sense of style and not at all psychic. Gansey was by far one of my favorites, and I will protect him at all costs. Ronan grew on me the further I got in the book. He isn’t easy to love but I ended up loving him regardless. Adam on the other hand has his own issues and I spent majority of the book wanting him to be okay. Noah is the cutest. I found him very weird in the beginning but with time I loved him just as much as the rest.

Today’s post is all about female authors of color and their amazing books!

Some I’ve read and some I haven’t, but I’ve included reviews for some of these books in hopes that readers (Including me) will decide to pick up these books some time soon. And to support the bloggers who wrote reviews features!

Every blogger featured on this page wrote a wonderful review. The point of including their reviews is for readers to get to know more book bloggers. Also to recognize the amount of effort each one put in his or her review. Blogging is a lot of work and I hope you’ll decide to support these bloggers (and authors of course!) for what they do.
