My 5 Star Predictions – 1


, , , , , , , , , ,

Reviews5 star predictions is something started by Mercy’s Bookish Musings on youtube, if you aren’t subscribed to her channel you absolutely must be because she is one of the reasons I started reading voraciously again. But I saw her doing this, then I saw a lot of others doing it so I thought I’d join the crowd and do one myself. As you can see I’ve marked this as 1 so others may follow. I’m thinking I will do this whenever I have a book haul. What do you think?

We also have Easterine Kire’s Son Of The Thundercloud, an author from Nagaand who features Naga legends in this awesome book. (PS, she is also a Jazz poet and I had to google what that was but it is soooo cool!) They also have Intimacy Undone and The Year Of The Hawks on the longlist. I can’t wait to see which one wins.

Non Fiction November Recommendations

Non fiction November is a month long event happening in the book community every year (third year running) for the month of November in which the hosts, Olive and Gemma, try to encourage people to expand their non fiction reading horizons by increasing their reading of said genre.

There is also a goodreads group for the same and you can check out the announcement videos by clicking on each of the host’s names. Continue reading
