Well, this last week was incredibly uneventful in my world of reading.
I am not necessarily in a reading slump, but I am definitely not on top of my game. I cannot decide what kind of reading mood I am in, and that resulted in me currently reading five different books at once. Oops.
In the last week, I picked up The Power by Naomi Alderman. I am loving it so far, though the narrator on the audiobook has a bit of a whiny voice that I am not totally a fan of. I really love the concept of it, and I cannot wait to see where this book goes. Women taking over and having supernatural powers? Hell yes.
I also made some more progress on The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin. When I say some progress, I mean very little. I have set this one aside to read four different books, and I am still sad about it, because I’m really enjoying it.
I am also still reading A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. Haven’t made a lot of progress on this. It’s very interesting, but because I made the mistake of picking up so many other things, I have hardly made any more progress.
The book I have been putting more attention towards (despite this book not being a fantasy, even though it’s May and Wyrd & Wonder–facepalm) is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I have had this book on the go for so many months now, making very little progress at a time. I have been heavily annotating and analyzing it because I never got to study it in school, so I am doing it myself. Hence the long-ass reading time. Hopefully, I’ll finish this in the next couple days, though; I only have 90 pages left.
Finally, I am still slowly trekking away at Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse. Once again, I am enjoying it quite a lot, but I am borrowing it from my library on ebook, and I am not a fan of reading ebooks on my phone. So it has been slow going.
I am not even going to think about what I want to pick up next, because I might have an aneurysm.
How was all of your last week? Did you finish any books, or are you having the same problem as me? Let me know!
