Goodreads Monday: 18/10/2021

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good start to the week.

I haven’t taken part in a Goodreads Monday for a while so I decided it was high time I returned.

My chosen book this week has been inspired by a fellow bookstagrammar who is reading the novels by Angela Carter. I haven’t read any Angela Carter for years but I remembered I have a very beautiful copy of one her books sat on my bookshelf and I have dug it out to read next.

Once upon a time fairy tales weren’t meant just for children, and neither is Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales. This collection contains lyrical tales, bloody tales and hilariously funny and ripely bawdy stories from countries all around the world – from the Arctic to Asia – and no dippy princesses or soppy fairies. Instead, we have pretty maids and old crones; crafty women and bad girls; enchantresses and midwives; rascal aunts and odd sisters.

I’m looking forward to reading this book because I love how different Angela Carter’s writing is. Thankfully, Carter doesn’t write about damsels in distress and pristine princesses, instead you get strong powerful women who stand no messing.

Please drop me a message if you have read this book or have taken part in Goodreads Monday.

Happy Reading

If you enjoy reading my blog and would like to make a donation I would be very grateful. Thank you
