Welcome back to Friday’s Further Reading!
If you missed previous posts, you can check them out here. Friday’s Further Reading is chance for me to share some interesting reads I’ve come across in the past few weeks. These could be short stories, poems, posts from other bloggers, or news articles; bookish and otherwise.
Most of the things I want to share today come from fellow bloggers.
Here’s a recomendation post based on tarot cards from Paperbacks and Planners. I love this series; I love tarot but I’m trash and don’t read my cards as much as I would like. This series always makes me want to pick up my deck.
Laura Tisdall wrote an excellent post about the recent controversy about the new Hunger Games novel, given it will be told from the perspective of President Snow. Laura looks at the debate surrounding the idea of writing from the point of view of an oppressor.
If you haven’t watched Tiger King yet, what have you been doing with your time in lockdown? No, seriously, what are you up to, because I’ve run out of things to do so please, let me know. In the meantime, Katie at Never Not Reading shared four books you can read if you loved the rollercoaster that is Joe Exotic. I’m definitely going to check out The Man Who Loved Books Too Much!
Finally, my favourite lecturer from university has started a BookTube channel, called Books Up Close! The first video is a review of Call Me By Your Name – I adore the book and the film so I was really excited to hear Chris’s thoughts on this. Do go check out his channel and like and subscribe.
