This wasn’t a bad week, reading-wise. I read a total of three books, which I am really happy with, especially since one of those books was 400+ pages, and I somehow managed to read it in under two days. I love when I can fly through books like that! It made me feel like I’m finally back into my normal reading groove, and I’m hoping to keep it up.
The first book I read this week is not all that exciting. I was bored at work and decided to get to my Shakespeare play of the month, so I read Coriolanus. I liked it, but I didn’t think it was that special compared to his other plays. It was a lot like Julius Caesar, which I just recently read, so that was kind of interesting.
Then I read From Unseen Fire by Cass Morris – you can read my review here – which I was really looking forward to. Unfortunately, it didn’t meet my expectations, but I do think a lot of people might like this one. It’s a really interesting concept, but the execution fell a bit flat and wasn’t enough to spark my interest.
And the book I binge-read this week is The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn. Really enjoyed this one! It was such a fun thriller! It’s been compared to The Girl on the Train, and I think I liked this one more.
I was inspired to keep up my reading streak and immediately jumped into another thriller, Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, which I am currently in the middle of. I’m enjoying it so far, and I’m definitely curious to see where it goes.
I’m also in the middle of the audiobook of The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, which is part memoir, part true crime. Honestly, I’m not quite sure about this one. I’m intrigued enough to continue for the moment, but it’s kind of all over the place. I’ll be sure to update you when I’m done.
Hope you’re all having a great weekend! Be sure to share your current reads in the comments!
