Inky's Fri-yay December 27

Well we are in those strange days between Christmas and New Year when you forget what day it is and quite frankly the best thing to do is to lie around and read books. And if you are looking for some books recommendations then you have come to the right place. Just look around at all the great stuff!

In book reviews we have some classic LoveOzYA with silene reviewing When Beatle Meets Destiny.This book was published last decade in 2009. Does the book stand up to the test of time?

Silene has also has a no spoiler review of the new release Lovely War.

Sylvs has reviewed The Magnolia Sword which is the story of Mulan and has also reviewed We Contain Multitudes by Sarah Hensta and even a Christmas themed book The Afterlife of Holly Chase.

On Confessions of a Readerholic and imosself has reviewed out 2019 Inky Award winner The Cruel Prince and given us an END OF THE DECADE post!

 foxlly posts an essay on Life Of Pi by Yann Martel.and if it is fiction reading you are after then foxlly also has a creative writing blog called She and Me and so far has given us some pieces that really pack a punch. Ooft!

Over at Lit Club zitongbooks gives us a brilliant post about the historical parallels in Everywhere, Everything, Everyone and lauraamabel gives us A POEM and a review BUT WARNING! Contains spoilers!

Speaking of Poetry, and oh how I love it when you do speak of poetry, iris has a new blog Poets Alive which is exciting and her first post is about Maya Angelou! And pineapple has poetry on the Overflow blog and has also issued an SOS which I know you can help with! Pineapple is suffering from a lack of no good books! How can that be? Please head over there and help out with some reliable recommendations!

A wrap up of a decade of Inky Awards and some associated articles on the books that defined this Decade.

And speaking of 2020 and of lists, sylvs has made a list of what books she thinks should be on the 2020 Inky Awards Longlists!!!

But do not fear that the end is near! There is so much to look forward to in 2020! Let’s start with the YA Room’s YA DAY!

See you in the next decade!
