Book Review: ‘The Bear and the Nightingale’ By Katherine Arden | I’ve Read This #WomenWriters

Another aspect of this novel that I really enjoyed was the winter setting and atmosphere. Arden does a superb job of creating a visceral environment for the reader. I felt the cold when outdoors with the characters and I reveled in the warm firelight that they huddled around at night. #WomenWriters

Book Review: ‘This Sweet Sickness’ By Patricia Highsmith | Changing Pages #WomenWriters

She was known to be keen to show that right does not necessarily prevail and in fact justice is often not done. This book does both of these things cleverly. #WomenWriters

David Hockney: 60 Years of Work at Tate Britain | Changing Pages #Art

He paints skies and swimming pools so blue I want to dive right in. Sunlight shimmers and dances off the water in these paintings amid an array of vivid blues and greens that seem to intensify the longer you look. #Art

Book Review: ‘All Night In The New Country’ By Miriam Bird Greenberg | #Poetry #WomenWriters

If you would’ve told me a few years ago, Six Rivers Press published what can best be described as a post-apocalyptic poetry book, I wouldn’t have believed you (“the post-apocalyptic genre is strongly associated with fiction, thereby it’s closely tied to works such as The 5th Wave or something” my snooty nerd-self would’ve replied).

Book Review: ‘Brain Fever’ By Kimiko Hahn | #Poetry #WomenWriters

There are some writers who have a knack at creating something refreshing; something that is so enjoyable, you don’t realize you’ve already read halfway. Kimiko Hahn has this quality.

Book Review: ‘Love Sonnets & Elegies’ By Louise Labé, Translated By Richard Sieburth | #Poetry #WomenWriters

We travel back in time within memories that could have been created today; within moments that reveal the fears, desires, and betrayals felt by the lovers of our past, our future, and even our imaginations.

Book Review: ‘Adventures Of A Terribly Greedy Girl’ By Kay Plunkett-Hogge | Changing Pages #Foodie #WomenWriters

This book was bought for me by a friend. She had read a pre-release review and immediately thought of me. Now I’m not sure if I should be offended or not. Greedy, moi? Surely not.
