This post is inspired by The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle by Matt Cain, a delightful book I had the opportunity to read and review recently. Pride month is over, the stores have taken down their rainbow banners, and companies have reverted from their ROYGBIV-inspired logos. But that doesn’t mean PRIDE is over, or thatContinue reading “Beyond Pride Month: Five Proud Books”

Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do
You know that saying about readers having many lives through the books they read? I love it, because there are so many things I can’t do, but would love to. Then there are some things books have inspired me to do… or at least to dream about.
Top Ten Underrated Books
I’m linking up with The Broke and The Bookish to bring you ten of my favourite books with fewer than 2,000 ratings. All of my books on last week’s list, save for one, have fewer than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads, so I haven’t included any of those books on this list (but you should totally check them out, too!)
Ten More South African Books To Devour
1. Kwezi by Loyiso Mkize
A new South African superhero comic, starring authentically South African characters. Such an important step in having representative books, but also a really fun comic that I would recommend widely. I intend on buying every issue, and buying some to donate to the children’s wards at my hospital too.
Ten Reasons I Love Audiobooks
I only started listening to audiobooks two years ago. I’m pretty easy-going when it comes to books: while print will always be my first love, I’m not the type to scorn ebooks and audiobooks. Reading is reading, and I love it! That said, there are some reasons I have grown to love audiobooks:
Ten Books Every Lifelong Learner Should Read
I like the concept of lifelong learning. I love the idea that you are not stuck with learning only about whatever you studied in college/university; I love the idea that you can gain knowledge about almost anything if you are inspired to do so (thank you, Google). I believe I am a life-long learner; and I believe that books are at least partially responsible for that.
Books To Read If You’re In The Mood For A Saga
I’ve been trying to find the right name for this particular kind of book, and the best I can come up with is “saga” – you know, those books that usually span a few generations, or at least several different stages of a character’s life. They are usually historical fiction, but I find that whatContinue reading “Books To Read If You’re In The Mood For A Saga”
Books That Were Out Of My Comfort Zone
I’m linking up with The Broke and The Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday. This week is somewhat similar to the previous TTT, Books That Were Hard To Read, but also not entirely. 1. Skin by Ilka Tampke
Ten Best Non-Romantic Love Stories
I’m linking up with The Broke and The Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday Valentine’s-themed freebie to bring you ten of my favourite non-romantic loves in books (in no particular order).
Top Ten Books I Read in 2015
What a year! It’s interesting that as I perused the list of books I read in 2015, I realised that I couldn’t simply choose the books I gave the highest ratings to. Ratings are fallible in that way, I guess. So there are some books here that I gave four or three “stars”, while someContinue reading “Top Ten Books I Read in 2015”
