Someone please explain to me what happened to the first week of September. Because I have no idea. It’s been a long week, and I’m pretty exhausted (yet again, I’m writing this at the very last minute), so I’m just going to jump straight into the three books I read this week.
First up: Recursion by Blake Crouch. This was a great page-turner. I do love a good sci-fi thriller, and Blake Crouch does them best. I really enjoyed this one. If you want to see more of what I thought, check out my review of Recursion.
Then I read Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks by Annie Spence. This is a librarian’s love (and hate) letters to various books. Everything from Matilda to Fifty Shades of Grey. I thought it was a really interesting concept. Some of the letters were fun to read. But it didn’t blow me away. Solid three stars, though.
Finally, I read Well Met by Jen DeLuca, which is a debut contemporary romance novel. I loved this one! It was so much fun. The nerd in me was very happy to read about renaissance fairs and bookstores and Shakespeare. Plus, the romance was really cute. This will likely be a book I pick up again one day when I just want a pick-me-up.
As for current reads, I am excited to tell you that I am more than halfway through The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt! I’m listening to it on audio, and loving it! I have a feeling this is going to end up being a five-star read for me.
I’m also (finally) reading The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang, and I love this book. the reason I picked this up was to jump back on the fantasy horse after being disappointed with The Priory of the Orange Tree last month. And it was definitely a great decision. This book is awesome.
That’s it for this week! I hope you’re all having a great weekend!
