This is going to be a quick wrap up because I just came back from dinner and I’m really tired. But it was a pretty good week for reading, I finished three books, two of which I really liked.
The first book I read this week is Educated by Tara Westover. I’m not going to talk a lot about it, because I did a review, but I loved it! It’s probably one of the best memoirs I’ve read, and it’ll be out this week, so go get it!
Then I read The Little Book of Feminist Saints by Julia Pierpont, which was really great. I always used to read those little books of saints when I was a kid, and this was such a good take on that. I’ll be doing a full review later in the week, so keep an eye out for that.
Finally, I read Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer. I was motivated to pick this up because the movie trailer looks amazing, but, unfortunately, the book fell flat for me. I appreciated the originality, but didn’t enjoy the reading experience. I’ll have a full review up tomorrow, so you can read more of my thoughts then.
As for current reads, I am currently enamored with Walter Isaacson’s biography of Leonardo da Vinci, which I am listening to on audiobook. It is so good! I can’t believe it took me this long to read an Isaacson bio, but I will definitely be reading more of them. I also just started The Red Word by Sarah Henstra. I’m not far enough in to decide how I feel about it, but I’ll definitely be doing a review later.
That’s it for this week! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend.
