Going back in time! “Sapiens” by Yuval Noah Harari is a must read for those curious about the human race and its origins. Controversial at times, Sapiens is not only incredibly informative, but it will change the norms of your thinking! ...
Why are we significant? Why are we insignificant? Evolution? Or Religion? What makes us intelligent? Fiction vs Non Fiction? Man Vs Woman? Human vs Animal? ...
These are a few of the questions this book raises and seeks to answer...so for those inquisitive minds out there, prepare to be taken on a journey through our existence!

Two of my pics for summer reading in my garden are The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand which was advertised as the author’s first mystery set in Nantucket (very light on the mystery but still a good, quick book), and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman which was advertised as a comedy but is actually painful to read at some points about Eleanor’s social awkwardness and loneliness.

Man! What a weekend - a sudden downpour on Saturday then a crazy drop in temperatures on Sunday. It feels like Fall but I’m not falling for it. My latest read would also have me thinking it’s Fall with a warm, cozy cover and lots of mention of tea! I’ve been better about writing my favorite quotes and reflections for each book but I have so much room for improvement. 📕

"She knew how to hit to a hair's-breadth that moment of evening when the light and the darkness are so evenly balanced that the constraint of day and the suspence of night neutralize each other, leaving absolute mental liberty." || Tess of the D'Urbervilles: A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented by Thomas Hardy, first published 1891

Recently I read Wide Sargasso Sea (my thoughts on it coming next 🙂), which is supposed to be the prequel to Jane Eyre, my problem is that I now find myself torn between feeling sorry for Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre and loathing him in Wide Sargasso Sea 😫 does anyone been in such a position??? He wasn't really my favourite character to begin with but I sympathised with him nonetheless, but now that I read the prequel I found my self thinking that karma is a b**ch! And well, what goes around comes around! ~
~Wide Sargasso Sea is a very well written novel telling the story of Antoinette (the mad woman in the attic/ Jane Eyre). The novel is narrated by both Antoinette and her unnamed husband (Mr. Rochester obviously😒) and it shows what got Antoinette to the state we see in Jane Eyre. In my opinion, I think Antoinette would've gone mad eventually, she was mentally and emotionally unstable, (plus, madness does run in her family) but Rochester's handling of the situation was monstrous, and it only shows how far selfish, greedy, and sadistic people would go to secure their wealth and position in society. I loved Wide Sargasso Sea, so heartbreaking and has so many layers to it. Would totally recommend it. .

Next up for #WITmonth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With only 11 days left of August, I’m hoping to read these two recent re-issues by Penguin -
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Child of Fortune by Yuko Tsushima (translated by Geraldine Harcourt)
Child of All Nations by Irmgard Keun (translated by Michael Hofmann)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yuko Tsushima is an author I was introduced to earlier in the year when Penguin kindly sent me a copy of ‘Territory of Light’ - which was a revelation. This was followed by ‘Of Dogs & Walls’, ‘Flames’ and then this, which I’m really looking forward to. Judging from the blurb, it sounds very much like the continuation of ‘Territory of Light’ - and I’m curious to find out.
‘Child of All Nations’ on the other hand, will be my first by Irmgard Keun, so I’ll post my thoughts later!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A note on the covers:
I’ve grown up around Penguin books, especially Modern Classics and I really like the recent redesign - with the ‘eau de nil’ colour. I have to say though, it doesn’t work with every cover and I’m certainly not a fan of using the exact same image and layout from the previous edition and just changing the type colour. However there are plenty of new titles/designs that fit perfectly with this hue - these two being prime examples.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you read any works by these authors? What do you think about the new-look Modern Classics? Do you have a favourite series?
