May Twitterature

We once reach the middle of the month again, so it’s time for another Twitterature round up as part of Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Roundup. Short, casual reviews in less than 140 characters.

Drums of Autumn (Outlander Series) by Diana Gabaldon: Yet another fascinating novel that covers space and time. Fantasy, romance and history. Sounds good? Check out Outlander first.

Forget Yourself by Redfern Jon Barrett: Dystopian, LGBTQ novel set in the future challenging our conceptions of relationships, world view and gender roles. (See full review here).

Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down by Nicey & Wifey: Excellent introduction to the tea and biscuits culture of Great Britain.

Lipstick Jihad: A Memoir of Growing up Iranian in America and American in Iran by Azadeh Moaveni: A young woman’s struggle to find her identity in the mix of her Iranian heritage and her American upbringing in a different Iran. (The full review is here.)

Make Your Brain Work: How to Maximize Your Efficiency, Productivity and Effectiveness by Amy Brann: An excellent overview of the brain, the way it functions and how to optimize and maximize efficiency, productivity and effectiveness. (Full review next Wednesday)

What have you been reading this past month?


  1. I keep hearing amazing things about the Outlander books and I STILL haven’t heard any of them. Soon?


    • I’d recommend them, they are hard to describe though! A delicious mix of history and fantasy with a hint of romance. They are long though, I am slowly making my way through the series reading other books in between.
