I forgot to mention on my update-on-reading challenge that I had challenged myself to improve my photo taking and make my instagram a bookstagram. While my phone photo taking is still not great, I have been attempting to keep a bookstagram, so I thought I’d share a couple pictures I took that aren’t too shabby.
Man, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. My deepest apologies. I’ve got another Anna Rant on the back burner, I promise.
Anyway, on to it.
Top Four of This Period (in no particular order this time)
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
This book was just as incredible, although maybe not quite as good, as The Secret History. Donna Tartt’s writing in this book is just stunning. At times, I felt as if though I were studying a painting rather than reading a book because her description is so vivid – which is quite appropriate for a book that revolves around a painting. This novel is also very character-driven, which I absolutely adore.
Before anyone thinks that this is a list of books from 2017 that I liked – stop right there. I don’t read many new books. Ergo, the title is “My Favourite Reads of 2017” not “My Favourite Books of 2017.” See?? Alright, we can continue.
I definitely didn’t read as many books as I am usually prone to doing, but that means I can just move on up from here and read more next year!
Without further ado, here is my top ten list (the ordering could probably be shifted around a bit as always).
