What are you currently reading?
The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller
This was recommended to me by another bookstagramer. I’m not one that gravitates to the contemporary genre, it’s not one that I typically enjoy, but I’ll usually give recommendations a shot. I’m still not sure how I feel about this one. I’m nearly halfway through, and I don’t really like it, but at the same time, I don’t not like it either; it’s confusing. I don’t care much for the characters, but I do find the dynamics between them all and the history that shaped them to who they are now interesting.
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
This series has been on my TBR list for a while thanks to the Netflix show. I honestly have no idea what order these books go in; my library says this is the first in the series, yet other lists say it’s Blood of Elves. IDK, but I’m reading this one first and then maybe reading Blood of Elves – if anyone knows the order of this series leave a comment and let me know please! I’m just over 40% through, and it’s good. There’s some jumping around, but a lot of it was used in the show, so it’s cool to be able to read it and picture the scenes from the show in my head.
Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather
I just started this one, in chapter two now, and it’s going well so far. This is one that I found randomly when searching my library’s ebooks, and it sounded cool.
What did you recently finish reading?
I recently re-read Dead Silence by S.A. Barnes. I really enjoyed this when I got it last year, and the re-read was every bit as enjoyable as the first read.
What do you think you’ll read next?
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
I watched the series on Amazon and was entranced, so I figured why not give the series a go and find out what happens next.
