This was a very heavy-reading week – I normally start counting from the moment a Sunday Snuggle gets post what I count for the next one – and as that happens Sunday early evening, I normally get another few hundred pages in. It’s also normally when I start new books – in this case I started and finished Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, and also got Exit West done.

My Readings This Last Week
I read Exit West this week, which is great because I had it on my TBR for a while now! I picked this up after seeing it on Barack Obama’s list of recommended (or just read?) books of 2017. The story was intense and had everything to be a heartbreaking read. And indeed, sometimes it was. But the writing style made it difficult for me to relate and get emotionally invested,so I ended up giving this 3 stars.
I read Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, a novella from the Reluctanct Royals world which was so delightful to read. They’re both so sweet and I loved seeing more of Likotsi. 4 stars to this novella!
I finished Daughter of the Burning City – I did not love this book, but I did enjoy reading it very much. I considered giving it 4 stars, but although I liked the world very much, it felt a bit too generic for me, so I ended up giving it 3 stars!
I started Middlegame, which is so dark and a fantasy plus sci-fi world, which is really cool.
I got Lying in Wait as an audiobook as well, and this was a really amazing psychological thriller. Just wow. I loved that you get so much of the killer’s POV. 5 stars!
I also started The Gilded Wolves, which totally gives me Six of Crows vibes. I’m really enjoying this so far!
