Weekly Wrap Up May 27 – Short Nonfiction Still Packs a Punch

weekly wrap up

This week, I got a bit better about reading, and I think my slump is ending. It’s just been a bad month all around, and that has definitely affected how I’ve been reading and blogging. Hopefully things get a bit better soon. But in the meantime, I’ve been trying to read as much as I can.

The first book I finished this week is Still Lives by Maria Hummel. I was looking forward to this one, but it ended up being not quite what I expected. It was a slow read, and I had a bit of trouble connecting with any of the characters. I did a full review of this one, so if you want o hear more, you can head over and check it out.

Then I read Dear Ijeawele by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I needed something short, and this fit the bill. It reminded me a lot of We Should All Be Feminist, and I loved it just as much. I am a huge fan of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and think she explains feminism so well. This took me maybe an hour to read, and it was definitely worth it.

As for current reads, I am about a quarter of the way into Caroline Kepnes’s newest novel, Providence. This one is something a bit different for her, and it reminds me quite a bit of something Stephen King might have come up with. I’m enjoying it so far, and I’ll have a review up before this is released mid-June.

That’s it for this week! I hope you’re all doing well. What are you reading this weekend?
