I hope you are having a wonderful January and start to 2023. I have loved sharing with you some of the first posts of this new era of All Things Gee. That being said we have not had a lot of bookish content. I promised you a mix of things and this is exactly what this is.
The first bookish content of the year. Strap yourself in, grab a cup of tea and let’s discuss what I am reading this January.
– 101 Essays that will change the way, you think-Brianna Wiest
“Over the past few years, Brianna Wiest has gained renown for her deeply moving, philosophical writing. This new compilation of her published work features pieces on why you should pursue purpose over passion, embrace negative thinking, see the wisdom in daily routine, and become aware of the cognitive biases that are creating the way you see your life. Some of these pieces have never been seen; others have been read by millions of people around the world. Regardless, each will leave you thinking: this idea changed my life.”
– Beyond the Wand – Tom Felton
“They called for a break, and Gambon magicked up a cigarette from out of his beard. He and I were often to be found outside the stage door, having ‘a breath of fresh air’, as we referred to it. There would be painters and plasterers and chippies and sparks, and among them all would be me and Dumbledore having a crafty cigarette.
From Borrower to wizard, Tom Felton’s adolescence was anything but ordinary. His early rise to fame saw him catapulted into the limelight aged just twelve when he landed the iconic role of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.
Speaking with candour and his own trademark humour, Tom shares his experience of growing up on screen and as part of the wizarding world for the very first time. He tells all about his big break, what filming was really like and the lasting friendships he made during ten years as part of the franchise, as well as the highs and lows of fame and the reality of navigating adult life after filming finished.
Prepare to meet a real-life wizard.”
Normally I would have a lot longer list for my first tbr of the year but I wanted to give myself half a chance of actually being able to get through my first tbr of the year. I also have been waiting to read these for a while and didn’t want to put pressure on myself for getting through them.
What is on your TBR this January?
