I never intended for these reading updates to be a regular thing, but I might as well treat them as such if I’m going to post them more often! I’ll just use these to inform you guys that no, I am not dead (though perhaps in the literary sense by a book giving me feels, or a book ending shattering my soul to pieces) but that I am busy reading and/or reviewing books. Depending on their length, that might take a little longer than others, but they are still coming.
Some reviews have to wait to be published as per request of the author/publisher, and I stick to that — so if you happen to see that I’ve finished a book on Goodreads, but the review isn’t up within the next two days, that means I’ll wait with publishing my review until a later date. They will be posted, however, both on my Goodreads page and on this blog.
That being said, I have just finished Dan Jones’ The Hollow Crown, a historical book on the Wars of the Roses and the rise of the Tudors and I rated it four stars because it was just …. how do I say this without falling to the ground and rolling around like a fangirl — it was amazing. Since it was an eBook I don’t know how many physical pages it must’ve been, but I assume it was over 300 pages of historical goodness and I reveled in it and danced with it and ugh– I highly recommend it for those who like history books just as much as I do.
I am now about to start reading The Thief Taker by C.S. Quinn, which is something else entirely so that should be fun — and I am also going to start The Moment Collector by Jodi Lynn Anderson, which is a book I very recently requested off Netgalley and got approved about ten minutes ago. The latter is said to be reminiscent of The Lovely Bones, which is good, because I love that.
Have you recently finished or started a book, or do you know any of the above? Let me know!
