Happy February everyone! I hope you’ve all been having a great start to the month. Mine has been kind of insane. Work has been a lot (I’m literally doing two jobs at the moment and it feels like my brain is melting), and I’m prepping for my trip to Prague, which is IN ONE WEEK. So I kind of feel a little bit scattered. But somehow, I finished three books. So let’s talk about them.
The first book I read this week/month was a reread for book club (because they basically only choose books I’ve already read): Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I loved this when I read it a year ago, and was excited to reread it. This time around, I went with the audiobook, which was definitely a good choice. I’m usually not a fan of full-cast audiobooks, but this might have changed my mind.
Then I listened to another audiobook: The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. Which is the first book I finished from my Prague Reading List! (Side note: I am kind of really behind on my planned reading for this year so far.) And I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this! I don’t know what I was expecting, but I could not stop listening to this book. Also, I think this has cemented my belief that Czech literature is really weird. But I kind of like it.
Finally, I read Love, Unscripted by Owen Nicholls. I’ll have a full review up tomorrow. But I’ll just say: didn’t love this one. I didn’t have a problem with the fact that i’s a romance without a happy ending. But I did have a problem with it being so slow. I pick up romance novels because they’re usually fast, fun reads. This one was neither.
That’s it for this week! Hopefully I can get a few more books read this coming week – even though it’s going to be crazy busy – because in exactly a week, I’ll be on a plane to Europe! I am planning on (hopefully having posts scheduled ahead of time, but we’ll see how that goes.
What are you reading this weekend?
