Yesterday was my blog anniversary! Three years have passed since I published my first blog post – a review of The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. To celebrate, I decided to share with you three of the posts that I enjoyed writing the most for various reasons. They are examples of part of the type of content that you can read on my blog and are in no particular order. The titles link to the posts, in case you are interested in reading them.
In 2018, I started a new category of posts about bookish places. I hoped to write one feature each month about either a special bookshop, a library, a museum associated with books or a specific author, etc. I’ve only written two so far, though. But I particularly cherished writing the one about the places connected with the life of Fernando Pessoa in Lisbon. It includes photos and even a (very shaky) video that I edited specially for it.
It was a challenge to write a review of Rebecca that conveyed how much I loved it. In the end, I think that I managed to fully express my appreciation for such an atmospheric and mysterious story, which is full of compelling characters.
The disdain for genre fiction infuriates me. It’s obviously normal not to like every single book genre there is, but that doesn’t mean that only literary fiction has artistic merit. I delved into this subject on the post linked above and took the opportunity to add my opinion to the debate about the merits of genre fiction.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog!
