[Weekly Update] Guess My Literary Doppelganger! + Stacking the Shelves + New E-ARCs

This month being Women’t Month, I’ve been coming across so many wonderful recommendations on Instagram. Those are pretty much the highlight of my day! I’m always looking for diverse authors to fill up my reading lists, especially those that are not too well known. Going through recommendations has made me realize how narrow my own reading experience has been and this is something I’m going to change in the upcoming months!

Last Week on the Blog

I enjoy Shakepeare’s works. He is a bit of a chore to read but the amount of creative insults I get to horde from his plays makes up for it. My review for Macbeth by William Shakespeare is not based on any literary analysis, considering I haven’t studied shakespeare’s work in depth nor am I familiar with the linguistics. But that shouldn’t stop anyone from picking up his works!

I participated in a blog tour for Sparrow Squadron by DL Jung; I haven’t read the book yet but I do believe it’s worth checking out. Sparrow Squadron is a Young Adult Historical Fiction – a rare for me – about a young woman who joins Air Force during World War II. The author also wrote a guest post about the inspiration for the book, so you should definitely give the post a read!

And finally, I introduce you to My Literary Doppelgangers! This was such a fun post that turned out to be more introspective than I had initially assumed. Without looking at the post, can you make a guess who my literary doppelganger might be?

On The Gram

I’ve been participating in various photo challenges on IG for March and it has helped me so much with my creativity. Playing around with Photoshop is probably one of the most frustrating yet rewarding things.

Stacking The Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality where we share the books we’ve added to our shelves! First up, are the new e-ARCs I received through NetGalley this week!

The Radical Element  was one copy I was really hoping to get approved for. It’s an anthology written by YA writers tell the stories about “the girls of all colors and creeds standing up for themselves and their beliefs.” The cover for The Hawkman by Jane Rosenberg LaForge caught my attention and I’m glad it did because the plot sounds very interesting. It’s about an American schoolteacher and an Irish musician who hide away in a small cottage during shattering events in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Below are books that I got during an online sale! The first is Wolves and Daggers by Melanie Karsak which is said to be a  steampunk retelling of the fairytale Red Riding Hood. Highland Raven by Melanie Karsak also caught my interest for being a Celtic inspired historical fantasy book with Macbeth influences. Melokai by Rosalyn Kelly is about a legendary warrior. The book is only a preview copy though.

  1. Oh, Shakespeare is a lot of fun! Last year I made it a goal to read a lot of his plays and although I was having a hard time with him from time to time, overall I really enjoyed it!

    Great pictures for Instagram and amazing Photoshop skills!

    Hope you will enjoy all of your new books!

      1. Romeo and Juliet, Othello, The Taming of the Shrew, Titus Andronicus (which was a lot of fun), The Two Gentlemen of Verona (also had lots of fun with this one) and all three parts of Henry VI. I hope to read more of his plays this year too.
