I have no idea how it’s almost halfway through October, but it’s time for another weekly wrap up! This week, I finished two books – both of which were five-star reads – and one short story, which is not bad. I’m also almost done with two other books. So I’m pretty happy. Let’s just jump right into the books!
The first book I finished this week was The Bone People by Keri Hulme. This was one of the most unique books I’ve ever read, but I loved it. If you like literary fiction and are looking for something different, I would definitely recommend this one. If you want more info, you can read my review of The Bone People.
Then I read one of the new sci-fi short stories on Amazon – check out the Forward collection here, I’m definitely planning to read more of them – Randomize by Andy Weir. Because of course I had to read the Andy Weir one. And it was pretty good. I definitely liked it less than his novels, but I still liked it.
Finally, I read Wilder Girls by Rory Power. It’s a weird book, but I loved it. I honestly don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a YA book this much. It was so good. It might just be one of my favorite books this year. Highly recommend. Make sure you check out my review of Wilder Girls.
As for current reads, I am about to finish The Last Man by Mary Shelley. I’m genuinely enjoying this more than I was expecting. The second half of this book is better than the first, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it ends. I’m also very close to finishing The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup (I’ll probably be done by the time you’re reading this), and I’m liking it a lot. So far, it’s proved to be a pretty unpredictable thriller, and I’m a fan.
That’s it for this week! If you want to see what I’m planning on reading starting tomorrow, check out my Spookathon TBR. What are you reading this week?
