It’s the last weekly wrap up of 2017! (Next week is New Year’s Eve, so I’m posting my 2017 wrap up.) This year absolutely flew by, which is probably a good thing because it sucked. 2018 is going to be a much better year. But, since we’re not quite there yet, here are some of the last books I read in 2017:
The first book I read this week is Henry IV Part II by William Shakespeare. I don’t have too much to say about this one. It was good, and I enjoyed the continuation from Part I. Not my favorite history (that goes to Richard II, which precedes Henry IV).
Then I read one of my new favorite books: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. I loved this book so much, and can’t wait to get my hands on a physical copy when it’s released on January 9. I already have a review up if you’re interested.
Finally, I finished my reread of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I am so happy that I revisited this one, because I’d kind of forgotten just how amazing it is. I’m also glad I decided to reread it, because I am planning on (finally) reading the rest of the series next month.
I’m currently reading A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki, which I’m planning on finishing this coming week. It’s definitely weird, but I’m really enjoying it. I’m still trying to sort out my thoughts on this book, but I might do a full review.
This week, I also started my reread of Red Rising by Pierce Brown, in preparation for the fourth book in the series, Iron Gold, which is one of my most anticipated releases of 2018.
That’s it for this week! I’m excited to have (almost) a full week off, and am planning on getting lots of reading done.
For those of you who celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a great holiday. And for those of you who don’t, I hope you have a lovely week.
