Bookish Rambles | Delirium, To Kill A Mockingbird, Of Mice And Men

I would like to take some time today to recap on some of the books I have read this year. You are probably not aware of how much of a bookworm I am but through my blog I would like to record my bookish thoughts as well as other things! I’m going to name this series ‘bookish rambles’ (inspired by Rhiana)

So, the best series of books I have ever read:

delirium

 

 

I picked up the first book of the series in a charity shop. I was looking for some new books and the words ‘charity shop’ were the first to appear in my mind. After reading the first one, I was totally hooked and had to go to the library to get the next two. I finished this series in about a week. The books are around 400 pages long though incredibly easy to read. Probably a bit too low a level for me but never less, the plot was brilliant. It took some very unexpected twists and turns. Out of all the trilogy, the third one was my favourite? A bit hard to say though! They were all amazing.

To Kill A Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men

 

 

I read these American novels by request of my English teacher. To Kill A Mockingbird took three days (250 pages?) and I loved it. The weather was nice, at the time, so I read a lot of it outside and the plot really engaged me. You may have studied this novel yourself, I have been told it is a GSCE text, so please tell me in the comments if you have! I would not like to spoil any of it for you, but for those that have read it, email me and let’s have a chat 😊

Of Mice and Men was short and sweet but some of the description in it was beautiful. Quite an unoriginal plot sequence which is what made me enjoy it so much! I became attached to Lenny though the ending was no surprise. He never really fitted in. Please tell me your thoughts on this book in the comments – I’d love to have a bookish chat with you all!

Undercover Princess and Princess In Practice

 

Sorry about the quality of this one – I couldn’t find any of better quality!

 

 

These books are brilliant for their LGBTQ+ representation! I love how Connie Glynn (the author) is not covering this up. Also, modern fairytale/princess stories are not seen as much today so this was another good factor! All in all, they are very individual books and I can’t wait to see the next one in the series! Undercover Princess is the first in the chronicles, I’m not sure how many are to come, Connie has not revealed much! 😊 If you have ever read YouTuber’s books then you will be aware of ghost-writing but The Rosewood Chronicles seem to have an authenticity that proves that they are not ghost written. If you have read them, you will be aware!

I would not wish for this post to get any longer! There are many other books I have read this year, so stay tuned for future bookish rambles.

Happy reading! Put down your phone and pick up a book 😉

  1. Hey lovely. I did leave a comment a few days ago but it didn’t ‘stick’ – had some problems with WP/Akismet hating me again recently so it may have gone to your spam folder. I saved it just in case…

    “When something leaves you desperate to track down the others in the series you know it’s a good book! I’ve not come across Lauren Oliver but I’ll make a note! I still remember To Kill A Mockingbird, read that over 13 years ago probably now when I was at school (yikes, now I’m feeling old!) What’s next on your reading list, Erin? I love posts like this to discover new stuff and what you recommend, so I look forward to reading more about, well, what you’re reading! 😀

    • Lauren Oliver was a new discovery for me also, I found ‘delirium’ in a charity shop! I have a lot of Bookish Rambles scheduled for the future, though at the moment I am reading series about the IRA and unsettlement in Ireland. It is very interesting! Thanks for your comment x
