It’s been a crazy week at work and I ended up not reading a whole lot. Hopefully next week I have a more or less stable work schedule and can read a little more – I’m also feeling a bit sick this weekend, so today it’s mostly resting and not so much reading.
Weekly Wrap Up
Gideon the Ninth, by Tamsyn Muir / Review ★★★★★
This was such a fun read, I had a great time reading this. It was hilarious, and I particularly enjoyed that it has so many different types of necromancers put together in an abandoned mansion. Such a cool book.
Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune, by Roselle Lim / Goodreads Ongoing
I have conflicting feelings about this book: I love that it’s sweet and it revolves so much around food. I enjoy books like those so much! But it reads like a YA book, and it’s not particularly well-written, which agonizes me a bit. Also the character development seems not entirely believable to me… I think it will end up being a 3 star book.
Ninth House, by Leigh Bardugo / Goodreads Ongoing
I started this book almost immediately after Gideon the Ninth because I was craving something to fill the whole in my heart that it left and since I wanted to pick up something released this year, I thought I better tackle Ninth House, instead of getting to ARCs that aren’t due till next year. It’s so far not really great, but it’s entertaining and I think it will get much better soon!
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 this week either.
