I didn’t write a Sunday Snuggle last week because I wanted to read and post as soon as possible all the books I’ve been reading for the Women’s Prize Longlist. Since I didn’t want to be late and have still books being read by the time the result came out, I’ve been prioritizing posting those reviews.
By the way! I am in the middle of moving from two different apartments in two different cities to a third one in a third city… so the posts in the blog will probably be a lot of pre-scheduled reviews I’ve been saving up, and fewer Sunday Snuggles, discussions and other posts that I normally write closer to the posting date… a lot of reviews of books I’ve read months ago, too. And I will be late with answering comments, I think… so please be patient if my content becomes a little boring in these next couple months! It’s because I’ll be only able to use my hands to pack boxes and will be covered in paint all the time, probably.
My Readings These Weeks
I finished Lost Children Archive! I ended up really enjoying this and might actually *gasp* re-read it at some point. My suggestion, though, is that you get it as a physical copy, because reading on the Kindle was not entirely comfortable. I think it also works well on audio, if you are able to read literary books in audio (I can, but I think most people prefer romances and thrillers in that format). I gave it 4 stars.
I picked up When a Scot Ties the Knot by suggestion of Dani in this post: 7 Outrageous Romance Premises That Surprisingly Work. When I’m having a difficult week, I like going for romances to make me smile. This was sweet and cute and sassy, just the way I like it 🙂 4 stars!
I also read Remembered! I loved this beautiful historical magical realism book. It’s gorgeous and it’s really underrated in my opinion. It has 160 ratings on Goodreads and it needs more hype!
I also started to read Freshwater! This is dark, gritty and so delicious to read. I can’t believe it wasn’t on my TBR before the Women’s Prize. I love those darker fantasy novels and this is blowing me away.
I started The Unhoneymooners on audio! I am not sure how I feel about it just yet but I’m sure it will steal my heart. Also, funnily enough – the book starts with Olive complaining about her bad luck and how her sisters wins all the prizes and giveaways etc… that very minute I receive a text from Swetlana saying I won her giveaway and I just had to burst out laughing. (Thank you so much, Swetlana, by the way! ❤ ❤ )
