This past week was only slightly less busy than the last, but I’ve still been feeling tired and super unmotivated. So it’s kind of amazing that I still managed to read as much as I did. I finished two books this week, both of which were five-star reads. So it was still a pretty excellent reading week.
The first book I finished this week is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I have been eagerly anticipating this book since I read Everything I Never Told You earlier this year. And it was just as brilliant as her debut. I am still in awe of how good this book is. I don’t even know what else to say. It’s amazing. You should read it.
After finishing Little Fires Everywhere, I (finally) read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Why did I put this book off for so long? It is every bit worth the hype. This book is so, so good. I finished it in a single day. And that day included eight hours of work. Easily one of the best YA books I’ve read this year.
This week I also started the audiobook of What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, because I’m not all that eager to relive the 2016 election and I was worried it would be feel like complaining. But it’s honestly really great, even though it’s bringing back all of the emotions of the election. I’m glad I gave it a chance.
I am also reading Rose & Poe by Jack Todd, and I’m kind of hating it. I’m almost ready to DNF, which is really disappointing. I had such high hopes for this book, but it’s done nothing but make me super uncomfortable. I’m not sure I’ll make it through the whole book. But I’m going to give it another shot later today.
I hope you’re all having a good weekend! As always, let me know what you’re reading this week in the comments (even though it’ll probably be bad for my TBR).
