LEONARDO DA VINCI BY WALTER ISAACSON ➤ 47% read
This book is such a huge chonker but so interesting! It’s just a biography about Leonardo Da Vinci but wow I’m learning a lot. Some of the included art is so beautiful too and I’ve never seen it before but I love it! I’m finding this really interesting to work my way through.
THE LIFE AND TIMES ➤ 30% read
Yes, I am still reading this fanfic but I haven’t been in a fanfic mood OKAY.
THE QUEEN OF THE TEARLING BY ERIKA JOHANSEN ➤ 3.5 stars
This book has been on my TBR for a long time I’m happy I finally picked it up. This was a bit of a mixed bag. I liked the character, the setting and the politics but this book was slow and spent too long building up to too little of a climax. It felt like one long prologue. I’ll definitely continue the series though.
THE SWORD OF KAIGEN BY M.L WANG ➤
I won’t say much about this now as I’m part of the blog tour which has just started and will reach my blog soon. This is Avatar: The Last Airbender meets The Poppy War in an East-Asian inspired fantasy setting.
NO FRIEND BUT THE MOUNTAINS BY BEHROUZ BOOCHANI ➤
My second read for non-fiction November. This is about a Kurdish journalist on Manus Island who details his experience in the detention centre through a series of texts collated by an Australian journalist. This is a really important book that came out in Australia in 2018 and one I feel I should have already read.
I, IAGO BY NICOLE GALLAND ➤
This is historical fiction about Iago from Othello, looking at his life before the beginning of the play. I’m interested in seeing how the author approaches detailing this life. I’m also hoping for some dark themes and complex morality in this.
That is all for today’s WWW.
