Celebrating Female Authors for International Women’s Day!

Celebrating Female Authors for International Women’s Day!

On one day each year, the whole world comes together to celebrate what I think, in my humble opinion, is the best species in the world: women! March 8th is International Women’s Day, and here at Wonderfully Bookish, I’m joining in the celebration with a few other great gals.

If you missed my Valentine’s Day post that I did with the four awesome people in the image above, you can read it right here. We’re all joining together again for another blog hop to celebrate International Women’s Day. We’ll each be sharing our favourite female authors, female characters, or anything to do with women in fiction!

Without further ado, here are my top four favourite female authors (in no particular order).

Snippet Reviews: Flawed, One & The Snow Child

Snippet Reviews: Flawed, One & The Snow Child

Hihi! How are we all today? Today I’m going to start a new segment on my blog called Snippet Reviews. I only started book blogging in October 2015, and before that, I read tons of books. I really want to review them all, but with some of them, I read them so long ago. How am I meant to remember enough about them to write a whole review?! I wanted a way to review them and tell you my thoughts without having to go into too much depth. There’s no way I can re-read books either just to review them. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

So, I’m going to start writing Snippet Reviews! They’re going to be very short reviews of only a couple of hundred words, briefly explaining why I liked/disliked the book and why I recommend it (or don’t). In this post, I’m going to snippet review Flawed by Cecelia Ahern, One by Sarah Crossan, and The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.

Author Interview: Eowyn Ivey

Author Interview: Eowyn Ivey

I'm so excited that I got to interview the author of one of my favourite books, The Snow Child. Here's my Q&A with Eowyn Ivey!

I can’t quite believe I’m doing this interview! One of my all-time favourite books is The Snow Child. It’s so magical and mysterious, and I always re-read it around Christmas. Not long ago, I sent The Snow Child’s author Eowyn Ivey a message on the off-chance that she might do a Q&A for my blog. I was so happy when she responded with a yes! So, here it is – my interview with one of my favourite authors! (beams with happiness)

In my 25 bookish facts about me, I admitted that that I have an awful habit of judging a book by its cover. If a cover is unattractive to me, it’s likely that I won’t pick it up – but if a cover it pretty, I will instantly want to read the blurb. This probably means that I’m missing out on some great books just because the covers don’t look very nice. However, in this post I’m going to share some of my favourite book covers and explain what it was about them that enticed me to read them.
