This week was a pretty great reading week! I managed to finish a total of three books, all of which I really enjoyed! I have been trying to make more time for reading, and really getting to the books I want to read, so I am really happy with what I was able to accomplish this week.
The first book I read this week is one I picked up on a whim: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. This book is amazing! I was immediately sucked in, and I could not put it down. This is exactly what I want when I pick up YA, and it is every bit worth all the hype it’s been getting. I loved it so much I even decided to give away a copy – CLICK HERE TO ENTER. It was just a such a fun read, and I loved every second of it.
I have kind of been obsessed with historical YA lately, so the next book I picked up is A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. I’ve actually owned this for a while, and finally picked it up because I really enjoyed McGinnis’s The Female of the Species earlier this month, and was intrigued by the premise of this one. It’s gotten some mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it! It was exactly what I was in the mood for after TGGtVaV. It was a bit predictable (and there was a scene early on that almost made me put the book down), but overall, I thought it was a pretty good book. And I am definitely interested in a sequel.
Then, I finally finished Out of the Fire by Nathanael Green and Evan Ronan. It took me forever to read this, not because the book was not interesting, but because I simply couldn’t get into it. It’s not what I normally gravitate towards, but I am a huge fan of Nathanael Green and Evan Ronan’s writing, and wanted to read it because I was interested in seeing how they approached a very different story. Once I got into this book, though I did really enjoy it! It was such an interesting book, and it was fun to see Green and Ronan approach sci-fi.
Currently, I am reading Woman Enters Left by Jessica Brockmole, which is turning out to be a lot better than I expected. The first few lines seemed a little cheesy, but this book has a lot of depth, and it is so interesting. I’ve been binge-reading it during lunch at work all week, and I am definitely planning on finishing it today, because I don’t think I’ll be able to handle it if I can’t finish the rest in one sitting. Keep your eyes peeled for a review next week.
I also started reading The Vegetarian by Han Kang, and this book is… weird. Really weird. But I’m intrigued.
I think that’s it for this week! I hope you’re all having a good weekend! Let me know what you’re reading in the comments, and don’t forget to enter my giveaway for The Gentleman’s Guide for Vice and Virtue!
