Weekly Wrap Up – May 5

Weekly Reading Wrap Up

I hope you all had a great week! And, if you didn’t, hey, it’s almost a new week. I wouldn’t say I had a great week, but I did have a fairly successful reading week! I finished three books this week, one of which ended up being a new favorite. As usual, I procrastinating writing this post, so let’s just get right into it.

The first book I finished this week is Anna of Kleve by Alison Weir, which I really enjoyed. It wasn’t my favorite in the series (Six Tudor Queens), but I did enjoy learning more about Anna. I reviewed Anna of Kleve earlier in the week, so be sure to check that out if you’re interested.

Then I read A River in Darness by Masaji Ishikawa, a memoir about the authors life in and escape from North Korea. It was definitely a tough read, but absolutely worthwhile. I feel like most of us have a vague idea that life in North Korea is awful, but we don’t really understand how. I really appreciated gaining more insight from this book. If you’re interested, you can check out my review of A River in Darkness.

And last, but definitely not least, I finished The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. This book hurt me, but I loved it. It made me even more excited to read more books by Ken Follett (which is good, because I own the full Century Trilogy.

After finishing The Pillars of the Earth, I’ve been suffering from a bit of a book hangover, so I haven’t started to many new books this week. I am currently reading The Lost World by Michael Crichton. Because dinosaurs. (Really, I enjoyed Jurassic Park a few years ago, and have been meaning to read the sequel.)

That’s it for this week! As always, be sure to let me know what you’re reading in the comments.
