This week was a pretty good start to the month. I read a few things I’d been meaning to read for a while, and crossed an ARC off my never-ending list. So, I’d say it’s been a pretty successful reading week. Because I procrastinate, and only have a few minutes to write this, I’ll just get right into it.
The first two things I read this week are I Hate Fairyland, volumes 1 and 2 by Skottie Young. I absolutely love this series, and I’m so sad it ended. But I did like where these two volumes went, and I thought the ending was really satisfying. I will definitely be rereading this series again at some point.
Then I read In the House in the Dark of the Woods by Laird Hunt. This was a really interesting horror novel set in colonial New England. Personally, I didn’t love it. But I do think it was a good book. You can read my full review if you’re interested.
As for current reads, I am just about done with The Real Lolita by Sarah Weinman, which is really interesting. It’s a bit different than what I was expecting – I thought it was going to be mostly about Sally Horner’s kidnapping, but it also discusses Lolita and Vladimir Nabokov quite a bit. I’m really enjoying it, and will likely finish it today.
I’m also almost done reading Born to be Posthumous by Mark Dery, which is a biography of Edward Gorey. I’ll do a full review later this month, but I am enjoying it quite a bit.
This week, I started Vengeful by V. E. Schwab, and I am loving it so far. I’m taking my time with it because I don’t want it to be over, but I’m really excited to see where this book goes.
And, finally, I started reading Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. Mostly because I needed a physical book to bring to work, and Vengeful is signed so I didn’t want to take it out of my house.
That’s it for this week. I hope you’re all having a good weekend. What are you reading this week?
