It’s been a very, very long week. I worked a few very long days, and was left with very little motivation to read. I didn’t even listen to an audiobook on my commute this week, because I couldn’t concentrate on it. (I listened to Hamilton on repeat instead, so I’m completely okay with it.) I managed to finish two books, but only because I’d read the majority of both of them already.
The first book I finished this week was The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. It’s a young adult novel about a teenage boy dealing with a lot of life changes. I really loved this book. I think it had a lot of really wonderful elements that I haven’t seen elsewhere, and it was a highly enjoyable read. If you liked Ari & Dante, you definitely need to read this one. Click here to read my full review.
Then I finished reading All That’s Left to Tell by Daniel Lowe. Sadly, I didn’t love this one. I’m a fan of ambiguity in plots and open-ended endings when they’re done well, and this book didn’t really do it for me. I did like some things about it, and ended up rating it 2.5/3 out of 5 stars. I’m planning on having a full review up sometime this week.
I’m currently hopping between a ridiculous number of books, because I just can’t get into anything at the moment. But, I’m hoping this week is a bit more relaxed and I can sit down with a book, because there are quite a few that I want to get to soon. I will admit that one of the reasons I haven’t been reading too much lately is because I got back into playing Dragon Age II, and it’s becoming a problem. But, the good news is, I haven’t loved any of the other video games I’ve tried (and there aren’t very many made for Mac anyway), so I don’t think its going to get too out of hand. But man, that game is addicting.
I hope you’re having a great weekend! And, as always, let me know what you’re reading in the comments – I’ve been loving all your great suggestions, and have added a ton of books to my TBR thanks to you!
