I began 2018 by reading this fabulous little book (and it is little at just 110 pages!).
I had actually begun it last year but never finished it for some reason so I picked it on New Years Day and tore through the rest of it.
I adored this book, its a gentle, clever, clean read full of metaphors. This is the 10th anniversary edition which contains extra Superheroes which don’t all appear in the story. I found them all to be a little bit samey after a while. You can have too much of a good thing sometimes! But it didn’t detract from the book itself.
It contains lots of lovely illustrations throughout the book too by Tom Percival which really adds to the storyline.
It gave me all the feels this book and was a quick and easy read for when you dont have too much free time.
A bit of culture for a change here. I am so stoked for Circe by Madeline Miller so thought id read about Circe in readiness plus i just love these Penguin Little Black Classics. And then we have some poetry by Emily Bronte, as you should know by now I am a massive Bronte fan and have been for nearly 40 years!
I have wanted to read this for such a long time and now that i am planning an exciting blog post all about The Brontes this will come in very handy. I am a sucker for letters, diary entries, text, emails etc. Real or fictional so this is gonna be soooooo good.
I saw the next 3 books on Ariel Bissett’s channel and I trust her taste impeccably so I know i’m gonna love these. But this book is so gorgeous. It has this strange 3/4 size dust jacket as if they had run out of paper! but the naked hardback beneath is just book porn basically, look!
You cant really see it but the speckles on this are silvery and shimmery! just stunning.
