It’s the first weekly wrap up of November! Are there really less than two months left in 2018? Because I am not ready. This week was a long one. Work was crazy, and I ended up getting the flu. So I haven’t had a ton of time for reading. But I did manage to finish two books I’ve been working on for a while and fit in a graphic novel.
The first book I finished this week was my reread of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. I first read this maybe fifteen years ago, and remembered almost nothing, so I’m so glad I decided to revisit this one. I really enjoyed how interesting and dark it is. Definitely a fan.
Then I decided to bite the bullet and finally finish The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu, the sequel to The Three Body Problem. Sadly, I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much. I think the different translator may have had something to do with it. But also, my favorite part of the first book was the game (I won’t spoil it if you haven’t read it), and that wasn’t part of this book at all. While it totally makes sense to the story, I definitely missed it.
Finally, I read everyone’s an aliebn the ur an aliebn too by jomny sun. This is a cute graphic novel about an alien visiting earth. I’ve been staring at this one for ages and am so glad I decided to read it because it was just cute and fun. Kind of like a children’s book, except it’s for adults (really the only reason is that it uses big words). Made me miss reading kids books.
As for my current reads, they’re basically the same as last week: The Dead Zone by Stephen King, Vengeful by V. E. Schwab, and The Unbound by Victoria Schwab. Nothing particularly new or exciting to say there. I’m hoping to finish these this week (at least one or two of them) so I can finally move on and start my nonfiction reading for the month.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend! What are you currently reading?
