The Sunday Snuggle W45/2019: Weekly Wrap Up

Hello readers!

This week has been a little crazy and with very long workdays, so my reading suffered a bit. I could have read more but I don’t like reading like a chore and would rather do it when I am in the mood for it. Which, of course, means that I won’t get as many books read as normally, but that’s okay, because I’ve already surpassed my Goodreads goal and my 2019 ARCs are almost all reviewed! Or DNF-ed. Either way.

From Edelweiss, I received:

Weekly Wrap Up

jade war fonda lee how to randall munroe last true poets of the sea julia drake

Jade War, by Fonda Lee / ★★★★★ Review to come

I initially gave this 4 stars but then I was thinking of this book for a long time after finishing and was really impressed by it, so I changed the rating to 5 stars!

How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems, by Randall Munroe / ★★★★☆ Review

This was a surprisingly quick read, and very funny! I think I liked the other book by XCKD better, but this was really cool. Also Dr. Katie Mack and Serena Williams feature in two of the chapters and that’s always a win for me!

The Last True Poets of the Sea / Ongoing

This is a really sweet, although a bit trope-y YA contemporary that I am enjoying! It’s got a love interest who is a historian, which I am quite partial to as my fiancé is a historian, it’s got F/F romance and a main character recovering from “romance addiction”. It’s nevertheless a story with depth and seriousness, and I think it might be a 4 star book!

Girl, Woman, Other, by Bernadine Evaristo / Ongoing

I just started this one! Still on chapter one, but I’m super excited to have received an eARC and so far it’s really good.

Bibliophile, by Jane Mount / Goodreads Ongoing

I didn’t actually pick this up this week, oops.

Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen / Goodreads Ongoing

Didn’t pick this up either.

This is how you lose the time war, by Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone / Goodreads Ongoing

I’m about to finish this one, actually! This is a beautiful, evocative sci-fi that is perfect for fans of poetry and literary fiction. If you like metaphors and imagery, this is a lovely book, even if you’re not a big fan of sci-fi. On the other hand, if when you read “time travel book” you think action and Blake Crouch, you will not like this one.
