I think I am finally out of my reading slump – this week I managed to finish a bunch of book I had started weeks ago, so it looks like a very prolific week reading-wise but really it’s just the result of reading many books at the same time and finally finishing them.
The two audiobooks I read this week were just okay, although objectively good, neither really impressed me too much – maybe I’m still having audiobook hangover from Lock Every Door? It’s possible. It was just so good.
I received from Netgalley:
On Audible, I got:
Weekly Wrap Up
I finished Girl of Fire, which was a decent read but I wasn’t wowed by it. Still, a solid YA fantasy! 3 stars.
I finished A Spell of Winter and really enjoyed it! It was so mysterious and gripping. 4 stars.
Trick Mirror was a bit of a mixed bag for me: I could not care for a lot of the essays, but really enjoyed others.
I read We Have Always Lived in the Castle! This was a fantastic read and an unquestionably 5 star book. Whimsical, suspenseful, dark, I loved every moment of this.
I read Most Ardently, a cute F/F retelling of Pride and Prejudice that I enjoyed so much! This was such a nice and sweet romance to change the pacing of my latest reads.
I started the second book in The Poppy War – The Dragon Republic. I’m only about 10% through but it’s already so intense!
I also started The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware! While definitely interesting, I think I’m hoping for… more? I can’t explain exactly why, but I’m not too invested in it as of now. It’s not a bad book at all, though – in fact it’s really good.
