Monthly Wrap Ups

February Wrap Up

Here what has been happening on My Booking Great Blog this month!

Book Reviews

I’ve read some great books this month! I’ve listed the links to the books below with a short snippet as to why I enjoyed them:

Book Events

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Irenosen Okojie following my review of Speak Gigantular.  Her answers to my questions were amazing! This, for me, was a huge thing as it is the first author interview I have done on this blog.

This month, I met Hannah Kent at her launch of The Good People.  She discussed her research and what made her want to write her second book.  I will be writing a post on that shortly so look out for that!

I also attended a thoroughly enjoyable evening called A Celebration of Female Artistry hosted by Picador and Unit London where celebrated artists and poets discussed and performed pieces inspired by Jessie Burton’s The Muse.  Quite simply – it was one of the most original and interesting bookish event I have ever attended.  I hope more publishers do this going forward.

Bookstagram

Well, our little #febbooksarelit challenge went down a storm with a little over 1,400 posts for the challenge!  We have released #marbooksarelit which heavily references women as March is Women’s History Month! If you are on bookstagram – come join us!

There is a lot in the pipeline next month with Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction and Man Booker Prize International Prize longlists being announced together with some other innovative book events.  I will be posting quite regularly as a result!

  1. Too bad Auster’s book wasn’t worth it! Have you read any other books by him? I’ve only read Oracle Night but I didn’t think it was anything special, plus the story-within-a-story strategy was just annoying to me. Also I don’t know how popular Oracle Night is, I just read it because someone said it was similar to Danielewski’s House of Leaves (which it wasn’t at all lol), and so I’ve just been hesitant about checking out his other work.
