I thought a blog would be a great way to exchange book recommendations as I love reading and writing reviews. I've also started putting pen to paper, and have recently completed a creative writing course. Maybe you'll be reading one of my books down the line!?
If you want to share about what you're reading, or anything at all for that matter, let loose and go for it!
Here's the challenge for day 3:
Pick your favorite book and recreate it OR reimagine the cover either live (with yourself or a willing participant as the cover art) or drawing, sculpture, crafts, painting, etc.
There were so many I liked that I put up 6! I'll give a brief summary of each one.
I like the simplistic nature of this one and I love that shade of green, so soothing.
Asking For It
The plastic image of the doll relates so much about this book and the way woman are objectified. It really speaks to me.
Tarryn Fisher's covers are lovely, but this one stands out as beautiful
Every Heart A Doorway
What's not to love about this image?
The Travelling Cat Chronicles
I love cats and snow, so it's a perfect combination
Conversations with Friends
This cover is so vibrant and simple. I love it.
I'm really starting to love this book. It's funny and extremely thought provoking.
It was all such an insult, the Hamptons. It was an insult to economic disparity. It was an insult to leading a good life and asking hard questions about what one should sacrifice in the name of decency. It was an insult to having enough- to knowing that there was such a thing as enough. Inside those houses weren't altruistic, good people whom fortune had smiled down on in exchange for their kind acts and good works. No, inside those columned, great-lawned homes were pirates for whom there was never enough. There was never enough money, goods, clothing, safety, security, club memberships, bottles of old wine. There was not a number at which anyone said, 'I have a good life. I'd like to see if I can help someone else have a good life.' These were criminals- yes, most of them were real, live criminals. Not always with jailable offenses, but certainly morally abhorrent one's. They had offshore accounts or they underpaid their assistants or they didn't pay taxes on their housekeepers or they were NRA members.
Guess what guys, I just joined this website where I've published the first chapter of my novel and you can read it too. I can't remember how to inset links, so I've just put it here:https://www.inkitt.com/stories/drama/358942?utm_source=share_author&fbclid=IwAR27Qy71w3sCBy1Y-anFSJ4mQG7bhV8bdLAtLvZbLZz7LOHbVIlNF1Yk-7Q
Todays challenge: Adaptation Aspirations
It may be a bit ambitious, but I'm hoping to finish all these books this week for Bout of Books, plus a slim guide to the workings of the economy by Yanis Varofakis that's not in the catalogue. Even if I don't finish them all a few done would be great. I was just ironing and listening to the BBC adaption of The Importance of Being Ernest (Oscar Wilde). I'm nearly finished it and it's proving fantastic, with performances from Judi Dench and Colin Firth. I'll have that finished by tonight.
The challenge today, introduce yourself in six words:
Words abound today, why not always?
