I had a huge stack on ongoing reads the past month or so, because I just couldn’t make up my mind on what I wanted to read. So I read a bit of everything, depending on my mood. Here’s what I finally wrapped up!
I stumbled onto a mystery novel and I liked it. So many people had recommended it to me, too, so it was a perfect gift to dive into.
Having a rough hour, day, week? I was. So I picked up my best go-to book for tough times.
3/5 but almost 2
Surprisingly disappointing, I know I’m very much the minority. One end promise bumped it to a 3, but I set this one aside for a while around 75% through because I lost interest.
Devoured this one as a necessary digression from everything else I was in the middle of because a retelling of Anna Karenina is something special that I had to have.
3/5 backlist work
Run Away whetted my appetite for mystery/suspense and this seemed like a good choice. I generally enjoyed it, but probably won’t think of it much ever again now that it’s done. Not sure I get why it was so popular and hyped.
This is a lot of octopus talk, which is starting to drag at 70% but I will get there. I have learned a lot of interesting things, but I also don’t need to hear so much about octopus motherhood and and sex.
