This was a pretty great reading week. Because, even though I read less than I wanted to, I still managed to finish two books, and both of them were five-star reads. Which is kind of awesome. But I’m starting this post at the very last minute due to technical difficulties, so let’s jump right in.
The first book I finished this week was The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang. This is definitely my favorite fantasy book of the year so far. I loved it. (I definitely regret waiting so long to pick it up.) I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. You can check out my review of The Poppy War if you want to read more.
Then I read (listened to the audiobook, actually) Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. I swore I watched the movie adaptation years ago, but then I read the book and I’m pretty sure that’s not true, because I didn’t remember a single thing. Now I have to watch it, because I really loved the book. I had a hard time getting into it, but I’m glad I gave it a second chance.
As for current reads, I’m about a third of the way through The Anatomy of Dreams by Chloe Benjamin. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. But I don’t think I like it quite as much as The Immortalists. I’m also reading Toil & Trouble by Augusten Burroughs. Which, if all goes according to plan, I will have a review up for tomorrow. (Though Friday is more realistic at this point.) I’m trying to squeeze more books in before the end of the month, so hopefully this week goes well.
What are you reading this weekend?
