Can you believe it’s nearly April?!
With Spring and the end of my university’s Winter term looming, I thought it time to treat myself to the many ‘to-read’ books stacked up upon my Goodreads shelf!
That’s why next month’s review theme is going to be ‘Editor Picks’, a month when I review a book chosen specifically because I’ve been putting off reading it for so long!
I’ll be posting what next month’s review material will be both here as well as on my Instagram @thatbookblogger on April 1st so make sure you follow the site to stay updated!
If you would like to make a suggestion on what you want to see me review in the future, make sure to leave a comment on my ‘Contact’ page or over on my account at Instagram!
In the meantime,
It’s fair to say that the fiction and poetry of many of the finest writers of the past century or so…have been deeply autobiographical. The link between the life and the work is one of the things we’re curious about and look for when we pick up the latest book by a favourite author.” – James Shapiro ‘Contested Will’
I’m happy to reveal that February’s ‘Famous Figures’ most voted material is James Shapiro’s 2010 ‘Contested Will’!
You voted over on Instagram that Shapiro’s explorative text should be reviewed over Lucy Worsley’s ‘Jane Austen At Home’.
Shaprio’s novel explores the many conspiracy theories and rumours surrounding of one of the most famous, and elusive, playwrights and poets of the 17th century. Not only does he explore never-before seen details surrounding ‘the bard’s’ life and career, but asks why so many other authors have been suggested to write the plays that are still so popular today.
My review will be uploaded sometime around mid-February so make sure you follow and keep posted in order to receive regular updates and information.
