It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey where you share what you read in the past week, what you hope to read this week, and anything else in between! I haven’t participated in this meme since October, so I thought it was about time to make a post again. Enjoy!
Between Monday, February 29th and now, I’ve completed the following books:
This was actually the second time I’ve read Night Film and I still really enjoyed it! I had forgotten a lot of details from the book since it had been so long since I first read it, so it was great to read it again! I highly recommend it to those who are fans of mystery novels. I also finished This Is Where It Ends and unfortunately, I didn’t like it as much as I thought I was going to. I picked up the book because it sounded like it was going to be intense and emotional, but it really lacked in both departments. I didn’t connect with the characters and I felt like the plot was really lacking.
This past week I also read the following novella:
- The Crown and the Arrow by Renée Ahdieh (The Wrath and the Dawn #0.5)
This novella was extremely short (9 pages) so we didn’t get a lot out of it. I liked being inside Khalid’s head and it definitely made me want to reread The Wrath and the Dawn, but other than that, I don’t think the novella added anything special to the series.
This past week I continued reading but didn’t finish:
- Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I started my reread of this book last month, but because I’ve been sick, I’ve only read up to page 120. I managed to read 35 pages of it this week and I’m really hoping to finish it soon!
This past week I DNF’d:
- The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson – DNF at 40%
I randomly picked up this book while at the library because I love Mary E. Pearson’s The Remnant Chronicles series. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get into this book. I found the writing to be extremely choppy and nothing like what I remember from Pearson’s other novels. Also, the characters and plot weren’t pulling me in. I considered pushing through and finishing it because the book itself isn’t that long, but in the end I just had to DNF it.
What I want to read next:
Other than finishing Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, I’m not sure what I’m going to read next. I have several books checked out from the library and a few coming in the mail tomorrow, but I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for. Also, I’ve been sick for a month now with vertigo and headaches which makes reading hard. I hope to get back to normal soon!
What book(s) have you finished this past week? Did you enjoy them? What do you plan on reading next? Let me know down in the comments!
