How are you guys doing this week? I finally got to see To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and it was SO CUTE, I smiled throughout the whole movie! Omg, I loved Lara Jean.
This week I got no books! YAY! Progress. Also, Noriko posted our discussion on Six Four, a Japanese crime thriller, on her blog! Here’s the link if you guys wanna read our spoilery talk on the book: Booktalk: Discussion on Six Four
Interesting Reads Around the Web
My Readings This Week
I finished The Poppy War! It’s an awesome book, so very dark, and I really enjoyed the story. It’s so complex and gruesome, and do take care if you decide to read it, there’s lots of violence, drug abuse etc. 5 stars to this dark tale.
I advanced a bit on The Changeling and I’m almost halfway through now! I’m not entirely sure yet if I like this book or not. It doesn’t grip my attention a lot, and I’m not sure in which direction the book is going, but I’m interested in the mystery and wonder if it’ll be a dark magical realism in the end! Hopefully I’ll finish it this week.
Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows was such a surprise! I had heard great things about this book, but I had no actual idea what to expect. This was a wonderful contemporary read, so unique, fresh and well-rounded! Also I love the cover, I think I’ll buy a physical copy. 5 stars! Do you guys want a review? I feel like this book isn’t talked about enough!
I also read Vox, which is like a 2018 version of The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s awesome to see this book, an even more realistic take in my opinion. This book is haunting and will make your blood boil – so, of course, I loved it. 4 stars!
Books I DNF-ed:
Ugh I wanted to love Dread Nation so much! I listened to it for about an hour and nothing happened at all, except for lots of descriptions of people and some girl hate. I wasn’t too excited about it… where are the zombies?? I’m thinking I’ll pick this up as a physical book or ebook, since I might like to read it more than to listen to it. What do you guys think?
