Book Babbles: BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK UNBOXING AND AN IDEA

In my last wrap up I discussed the fact that I have been reading more lately and it was suggested that I share some of what I have been reading.  So, in that vein I wanted to share two things with everyone!

First, I recently purchased a “Blind Date With A Book” from Under The Radar Books on Etsy.  Brittany aka Under The Radar Books is a terrific booktuber who I have been watching for several months.  If you haven’t seen her channel check it out here, especially if you like less known books, literary fiction, and magical realism.  Brittany just opened her Easy store with the idea of setting readers up on blind dates with books.  You simply pick any genre of book and Brittany will pick a book and send it to you!  If this sounds like fun you can find her store here!

I selected “Brittany’s Choice” which meant that I told her some of my favorite recent reads and linked her my Goodreads account (which you can do if you have one but you don’t have to have one in order to get a book), and then I waited!  Last week my blind date arrived!

Not sure if you can read that but on the tag Brittany put a few “clues” as to what the book is…any guesses?

I am so excited!  I had not heard of this book but I am really looking forward to giving it a try!

On to my second bookish topic.  I definitely am planning to include what I am reading in my monthly wrap ups but I wanted to see what you all thought about me starting to include some book reviews/discussions of what I am reading?  I am currently reading COLD COMFORT FARM with two other awesome booktubers (Kate Howe and Ange of Beyond The Pages, both of whom are great especially if you like the classics) and I am really enjoying discussing the book with them.  I am also giving serious thought to watching the film version after I finish the book and writing a post about it.  I am also reading a biography of Catherine the Great and thinking about watching THE SCARLET EMPRESS afterwards.  So, let me know what you think and if you would be interested in seeing some posts about my reading in the future!

    I’d definitely be interested in book reviews and discussions, and I recommend the Cold Comfort Farm film, though it’s been a while since I saw it (or read the book, for that matter). Also, thanks for the information on Blind Date with a Book! I have a lot of reading to catch up on at the moment, but I’d love to try it in the future.
