Bookish Buzzwords

buzzΒ·word

  1. a word or phrase, often an item of jargon, that is fashionable at a particular time or in a particular context.

Hey, guys, it’s been awhile so glad to be doing a blog post after a week of silence, hope you are well. As you can see in today’s post I am going to discuss Bookish Buzzwords, it essentially one word that sums up a certain tone or theme about what the book is about. For example, if the blurb states the book is about Friendship or War to kind of pitch and grab the reader’s attention, I have a few of these Buzzwords that I would like to share with you today and if you have any books that are about or have some aspect of these buzzwords do tell me, I am always down for book recommendations😊 keep on reading

Handmaids tale by Atwood (really short post)

β€œWe were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom.
We lived in the gaps between the stories.”

Synopsis

Genre: Classic, Feminist Lit, Dystopian, Sci-Fi

 

It was one hauntingly scary tale & it was a dystopian story that actually could take place, almost prophetic or it seemed to have already happened. I was amazed by Atwood‘s way of story telling her writing was poetic and had a sombre tone that will engulf you as you flip the pages.

β€œBetter never means better for everyone… It always means worse, for some.”

The story is told by one of the Handmaids (Offred) in this dystopian setting where women or basic rights are abolished and horrific events and certain rules are put in place that is very disturbing. Women are only supposed to breed and serve the rich and if you fight against the power you are publiclyΒ hanged.

β€œNolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”

I had very mixed feelings about this book, I really didn’t connect with it on a level I would I have preferred but still would highly recommend it.Β I really loved the writing but I felt disjointed from the book. I was a spectator but I would have loved to be thrown in the book. It took awhile for me to finish it but I can say it is a must read because the themes discussed are relevant & very important. Religion, feminism,human rights so much more and I am so excited to read more of her work.

It was only a matter of time before I did this post and I am sure as I continue finding more of King works I will post another one in the not so distant future. He has been one of the best authors I have ever read and I have acquired a sizeable amount of his work. Some people have been asking me… where to start, is he as scary as everyone claims to be, is it hard to get into his work etc. This sparked an idea for a blog post and I can share my experience on how I discovered King and which of his books are more accessible.
