This has been a particularly long week, but I feel like I am finally getting back into reading, which I am super happy about. It doesn’t feel like such a struggle to pick up a book. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed it keeps getting better.
The first book I finished this week was Providence by Caroline Kepnes. I had high expectations for this, because I loved You, but it just felt a little bit flat for me. I didn’t love the story (possibly because I haven’t read the Lovecraft book it seems to be influenced by). It almost felt like something Stephen King might have written, but I think he would have done it better. You can read my full review of Providence if you’re interested.
Then I read Black Klansman by Ron Stallworth. This is a fascinating memoir about a black police officer who infiltrated the KKK in the late 70s. It wasn’t the most exciting thing I’ve ever read, but it was really interesting. And I will definitely be seeing the adaptation when it comes out.
As for current reads, I finally got back into audiobooks and am a few hours into I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara. I’m not sold on the narration, but the story and writing are both really great! Glad I decided to pick it up.
That’s it for this week. Really hoping I get back into my normal reading/blogging routine soon.
What are you reading this weekend?
