Hey everyone, it feels like despite my good intentions the current heat wave in the UK has really taken a toll on my ability to do pretty much anything of use. I know our temperatures are low in comparison to many countries but the UK just isn’t set up for heat, we don’t have air conditioning in our homes and the heat we get is humid and sticky and gross. I’m hoping hard for thunderstorms tonight!
What I read last
At the weekend I finished The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, I have so many mixed feelings about this book. The writing was beautiful and the story was unique and captivating, but for some reason it felt like a slog to get through. I felt like I was wading through the honey of the story and I felt like no matter how much I read I felt like I didn’t make a dent. Ultimately I did enjoy it, it’s just going to be a tough one to review fully!
What I’m reading now
True to form I’m reading 3 at the moment, Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn in hardback, Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon on audio, and All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace on kindle. Dangerous Remedy isn’t really capturing me the way I was hoping, Priory I’m glad that I got on audio as I have now passed where I stopped on the physical copy and I’m really enjoying the story. All the Stars and Teeth I’m loving so far!!
What I’m reading next
At the end of this week, I’m taking part in my first readalong with Tandem Collective and the book is Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron, my copy is on it’s way and hopefully will arrive in time for the start on Friday!
