It’s the start of a new month and we’re officially into the second half of 2020. Let’s hope that we don’t have any new surprises or disasters popping up. Hope y’all have a great July!
Okay onto book updates.
The Three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently still reading 101 Essays That Will Change the Way You Think by Brianna West. I’m reading it very slowly, about one essay a day speed so.. I’ll take a while to finish it.
The second book I’m reading is Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds which I’m listening to on audiobook.
What did you recently finish reading?
I finished 3 books in the last week.
First one was Em and the Big Hoom by Jerry Pinto. It was an eye-opening read for me. The book follows the life of a boy who’s mother battles with mental illness and we see all the facets that come with the illness.
It was a very raw and honest point of view with zero sugar-coating. I really liked it and definitely recommend it.
The next book that I finished was Must Love Jogs by Xavier Neal. I got this book on the Kindle store someday last year when a bunch of romance books were free. I got about 9 of the books and only read 1 of them, so I picked up another in order to try new books.
This book was not great but not too bad as well. It was okay. Not very enjoyable and there are definitely better books out there.
The last book I finished was Release by Patrick Ness. I’ve had this book for quite a while now and it also has a queer main character so I pushed myself to pick it up since it was Pride month.
I have mixed feelings about the book. One half was good and the other half was confusing and had no point to it. Here’s the review that I wrote on Instagram:
What do you think you’ll read next?
This month, I have at least a couple buddy reads. So hopefully I’ll pick up at least one of the books soon.
But, to be honest, I’ve had a hectic few days (if you follow me on Instagram, I posted all about it) and am not in the headspace to actually pick up new books. I’m not sure. Let’s see what I end up reading. No set picks, though.
What did you finish reading recently? Have you read any of the books that I mentioned?
