Weekly Wrap Up May 20 – Disappointing End to a Great Series

weekly wrap up

I have been reading so slowly this month, and I’m pretty sure it’s because I’ve been too stressed out to enjoy reading. And I hate it. This week was particularly bad. I think I’ve reached my limit and I’m still trying to find a solution. I’ve just been in a terrible mood, and its not really getting better. But I did still get through two books this week, so it wasn’t s total loss.

The first book I read is Only Human, the last book in the Themis Files trilogy. Honestly, I was a tad bit disappointed, because it took me a while to get into it. It wasn’t quite as good as the first two books. But I did still enjoy it. You can read my full review of Only Human if you want more of my thoughts.

Then I read my Shakespeare play of the month, Hamlet. Really enjoyed this one. It didn’t manage to top Macbeth or King Lear, but it’s up there. Don’t really have much else to say about it. (Also, I’m tired and my internet is being spotty, so I want to finish this post quickly.)

As for current reads, I am working my way through Still Lives by Maria Hummel. I’m hoping to finish in time to have a review up tomorrow, but we’ll see how that goes.

Hope you’re all having a good weekend! Let me know what you’re currently reading in the comments!

  1. At least you got through another Shakespeare play– those always take me ages! 🙂 Right now I’m reading the last book on my required reading list of the term and I’m SO EXCITED by the prospect of being done. Hope you have a lovely week <3

    1. I’ve gotten in the habit of reading them online at work when I’m bored, so I fly through them. (Shmoop has some great side-by-side modern English translations that help a lot).

      And thanks! I hope you have a great week, too.

  2. Currently reading House of Names by Colm Tóibín. Recommended book, even though I’m still reading it! One of those novels you feel compelled to never put down and I wasn’t even sure I’d be interested in it…

      1. I honestly first came across him and his books a couple of weeks ago. I was at a bookstore in London and got pulled right away toward the cover of House of Names. I’d like to check out whether there are any translations to Italian…
