Bookish Links #28
Sunday, 19 March 2017
Welcome to another round of Bookish Links - our monthly list of awesome links from around the web! Here are our top picks for March...
1. Spend Less, Read More! - we love shopping for books as much as the next person but it can get expensive with all the amazing titles on offer. Jade's post shares five great ways to save the pennies when it comes to buying books. Do you have any tips to add to the list?
2. Budget Buys - we also enjoyed Beth's post showcasing five titles she recently picked up from a local Oxfam bookshop all for under £10. Do you opt to buy second hand books?
3. More Titles For Your TBR - it wouldn't be a Bookish Links list without an article or two that will add at least five more books to your TBR pile, right? This month we're loving this recent list from Bustle which shares fifteen Contemporary YA picks all due for release in 2017. Which of these titles are you most excited about?
4. Addictive Reads - speaking of books to add to your TBR, we also loved this list of 'unputdownable' titles from Anne over at Modern Mrs Darcy. The seventeen titles featured are all books Anne read in twenty-four hours or less. Have you read any of these books?
5. Bookmark Love - this article showcases some fun and unique bookmark ideas with something for every type of bibliophile. Do you have any unusual bookmarks in your collection? Let us know!
6. Reading Goals - we loved reading about Emmie's idea to keep on track with her 2017 reading goals by documenting reading thirty books before June. How do you keep on top of your bookish goals? Let us know in the comments!
7. Manuscript Notebooks - these gorgeous bookish notebooks and journals from Manuscript were brought to our attention by a great post from Angela at Paper Lovestory. All of the products feature recognisable book covers and we think they would make perfect gifts!
8. Positive Portrayal - Puput recently shared her thoughts on the portrayal of girls in YA Lit and why she thinks we need to see a more positive representation with less stereotyping. If you have any top recommendations for books that feature strong female friendships or positive role models leave them in the comments section below!
9. New to YA? - in this handy post Nihaad shares her top five recommendations for YA newbies, featuring Historical, Romance, Contemporary, Fantasy and Non-Fiction subgenres. Which books would make your list?
