[Review] Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 by Cho Nam-Joo

As my favourite and only 5 star book from last year, I couldn't not have a review of this gem! Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 is a 2016 novel by Cho Nam-Joo that was translated into English for the first time in 2020 by Jamie Chang. It describes the life of normal ‘every woman’ Kim Ji-yeong, and in doing so addresses the discrimination and difficulties faced by women in Korean society. It’s publication sparked many discussions around the topic of feminism and gender discrimination in Korea after it’s publication, and as such can be seen as a highly influential feminist novel of our times.

Top 5 Books of 2021

Today I will be doing a countdown of the best 5 books that I read in 2021. This is also all of the books that I rated 4 or more stars (excluding rereads, because I didn't count those). If you didn't know I count 4 as 'really liked and would highly recommend' so even 4 stars is still a glowing recommendation in my books!
