It’s been a long time since I did a bookish post like this so I’m pretty excited to do one again. WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. You can share your post on her weekly thread so that other people can read your posts too.
Anyways, enough of the chit-chattering and let’s get started
I am currently reading The Fifteen Lives of Harry August. I’m not sure this book is for me though. The concept is interesting but I am having a hard time connecting with the narrator. There is more tell that show. I guess it couldn’t be helped because of the nature of the story being told but it is getting kind of boring. It’s a well-loved book – it’s just not for me I guess. I am thinking of DNF-ing it actually.
I finished reading Verity by Colleen Hoover. I liked it, but I found the plot to be a bit far-fetched. I didn’t like the romance either, so that definitely didn’t help much. She did a good job making sure the tension was there though. If the plot wasn’t so outrageous and romance annoying, I would have probably loved this.
I am thinking of reading a couple of books but here are the two on my top list.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a recent release that I have read a lot of good buzz about. While The Wicker King is an older one that is also a well-loved book. It has a promise of a good romance and LGBTQ representation, what is there not to like?
I’m going to try and do more of these bookish post in the future. Probably do a Waiting on Wednesday or a Top 5 Wednesday post.
How about you? What are your recent reads?
