This week was a bit more relaxing than last, because I ended up only having to work one day. Which means I actually read a book! And not just one. We just won’t talk about the fact that I spent most of the week procrastinating on my homework. I really need to get my ass in gear next week, because, at the rate I’m going, I am not going to finish this book (aka my thesis).
Anyway, onto the books I read! The first book I managed to finish this week is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz. I loved this book! I listened to the majority of it on audiobook, which is narrated by Lin Manuel Miranda, and it’s so good! I really enjoyed it, and only switched to the ebook because it’s faster and I wanted to get to the end. I started this as part of the Diverseathon last week, so I’m a bit late finish it, but it was really good. I gave it five stars.
Then I wanted a quick fun read, so I picked up the last installment of the Deanna Madden series (which begins with The Girl in 6E) by A. R. Torre. If You Dare was not quite as good as the first book, but I did really enjoy it. I don’t usually read erotica, but I really enjoyed that this series was mostly thriller with a bit of erotica thrown in for fun. I really enjoyed this series so far, and if there is a next book, I will definitely read it.
I am still slowly making my way through The Guineveres by Sarah Domet. I’m not sure what I think of this book yet, but it’s definitely a slow read for me. I do want to find out what happens, so I’m going to stick with it. The characters are intriguing, and it is a bit of a mystery. And I received it for review, so I will hopefully be reviewing it soon.
Starting tomorrow, I will be participating in the Banned Book-a-thon, which takes place through Banned Book Week. This year, Banned Book Week celebrates diversity, and I have a lot of great books on my list. I will have my full TBR and more information about the readathon up tomorrow morning, so keep an eye out for that if you’re interested.
And let me know in the comments if you read anything great this week, or if you’re planning on reading anything specifically for Banned Books Week.
Have a great weekend!
