Excited to start the next trilogy in the Mara Dyer universe. I hope it keeps the same tone.

I’ve been seeing this book everywhere for ages and finally caved and bought myself a copy. I’m hoping it a contemporary in the same vein as those Jenny Han writes. *fingers crossed*

#BQ The Yellow Wallpaper by Casey Carlisle

The next of the top 5 quotes from the most memorable novels read has to include the short story ‘The Yellow Wallpaper‘ by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. A narration on mental illness, post-partum depression, and being trapped in a archaic marriage, unable to play the role of a dutiful housewife. It was the first time I’d read anything so heavily steeped in symbolism. It was required reading for my first year of university and seemed to open my eyes in regards to feminism, equality, and gender roles.

Are there any books that opened your eyes to views on society?

Interested to see how this trilogy wraps up… I’m on the fence about this collection and ‘Rebels of Eden’ could tip my opinion either way.

Has anyone read this yet? What am I in for?

#BQ Left Hand of Darkness by Casey Carlisle

I thought I’d post the top 5 quotes from the novels that are the most memorable in the coming month – ones that have stood the test of time and really made me think.

‘The Left Hand of Darkness’ challenged my thinking about gender and gender roles when I first discovered it in my schools library at 13 years old. I think it planted the seed of  feminist attitudes in regards to equality and deconstructing gender as a social construct.

What books have stuck with you through time. How have they influenced you attitudes?

I’ve been good and avoided watching the movie… hoping to find some time to read this soon and then see how the film stacks up.

Anyone completed both the novel and the film? Which do you feel rates better?

#BQ Final Draft by Casey Carlisle

After loving ‘Noteworthy‘ I was interested to see what Riley Redgate would offer next… another queer lit with ‘Final Draft‘ tickled my fancy with the main character writing a book on the road to self discovery. Review coming very soon 😀
