This week was (well, technically still is) Spookathon! Which means I read a grand total of one of the books on my TBR. But, I am writing this early because I have plans, so I’m kind of hoping I’ll get home early enough to finish one more book. We can still talk about the four books and one short story I read the week.
The first book I finished this week is The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup. This was a really dark thriller about a serial killer who leaves chestnut men behind. I thought it was an appropriately creepy thriller for the Halloween season. And, bonus: I actually read one of my Book of the Month picks. You can check out my review if you’re interested.
Then I read Vanity Fair’s Women on Women, which is a collection of profiles on famous women, written by famous women that were previously published in Vanity Fair. It was definitely an interesting read. Some of the profiles were more entertaining that others, but I did enjoy them all. Check out my review.
This week, I also finally finished The Last Man by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, which I actually really enjoyed. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but it was really good. It made me remember how much I love Romantic literature.
Finally, I listened to the short audiobook of You Have Arrived at Your Destination by Amor Towles (read by David Harbour). This was an interesting sci-fi story. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was short and intriguing.
As for current reads, I’m in the middle of Tunnel of Bones by V. E. Schwab, which I am actually hoping to finish before this post goes up (if not early Sunday). And I am listening to the audiobook of Embrace Your Weird by Felicia Day, which is an inspirational book for being more creative. I’m really enjoying both of them so far.
I hope you’re all having a great week! What are you currently reading?
