April was a fun and busy month for me, as I did a lot of travelling in between work. Despite being busy, I still managed to find time to pick up a few books.
When I visited my sister in France, we went to Paris and I treated myself to Men Explain Things To Me from Shakespeare and Co. This is a short anthology of feminist essays, which I’ve since read and enjoyed. I also found out that the author, Rebecca Solnit, went to university in Paris, so it was a quirk of fate that I happened to buy the book there.
I went to London for a weekend in the middle of April and I picked up a copy of Circe from Waterstones Piccadilly (the first time I’ve ever been). This is one of my more highly anticipated reads of the year, but I haven’t managed to start it yet (thank you giant TBR pile). Hopefully I’ll find time to get to it in June or July.
As well as the gorgeous hardbacks of Circe and Men Explain Things To Me, I bought a hardback copy of Of Fire and Stars from the wonderful Kelly @KellysRambles, and traded my ARC of Everless for an ARC of The Smoke Thieves, which I’m currently reading (but sadly not loving).
Have you picked up any good books recently? Do you prefer to buy paperbacks or hardbacks?
