Hello and welcome to my July 2020 reading status! Summer time feeling is already here, in the Eastern-European area. I hope you are all well in this tumultuous times and that you stay safe, preferably at home as much as possible.
Since the previous reading status in June I finished 1 book, but I have high expectations of the next summer months in terms of reading progress.
I am still reading “The Golden Thread” by Kassia St. Clair. I take my time to enjoy it 🙂 It is a non-fiction book about the history of fabric – from silk in China to wool in England – and how fabric influenced areas such as sports and space travel, among others.
In July I finished reading “Girl, Woman, Other” by Bernardine Evaristo. It is an amazing book that tells the story of 12 Black women. I loved everything about this book – starting from the “fusion fiction” narration style to the diverse inter-connected stories of women and the rich human experiences illustrated by Evaristo. Review coming soon!
I might be reading “Hag-Seed” by Margaret Atwood. The story is a retelling of “The Tempest”, so I hope it will bring back the Shakespeare spark in my life. The last book I read by Atwood, “The Heart Goes Last”, was an interesting and bizarre read, so I am very curious to see how this experience will be. The cover looks spooky enough!
In addition, I plan to participate in The Reading Rush readathon next week, so I’ll be back with news!
Till next time … happy reading and #stayhome!
