Is it really only Wednesday? Because today had me feeling like it was Friday and I’m just so ready to shut off and have it be the weekend already! Work has been taking over my life the last week and today was finally the last day of our biannual regional meetings. While it’s been a blast having my colleagues from all over Southeast Asia visiting, 10 days straight of meetings can be such a drainer. One good thing is that I’m forced to really come out of my book cave and be sociable; but that also means I’ve had so little time to read and I feel like I’m an addict going through withdrawal. Girl needs to get back to her reading, now! 🙈
On that note, it’s time for another WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be talking about:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
What did you read last?
This past weekend I finished All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover. I hadn’t read a CoHo book for years until I picked up Verity earlier this year and I enjoyed that mix of thriller-romance so much that I decided I’d start reading CoHo again. I joined a buddy read for All Your Perfects and while we were meant to be reading this in two parts, we all basically finished the book in one sitting! CoHo’s books just suck you in and this one also reminded me how easily she can sucker punch me in the feels every. single. time! If you’re looking for a heart-wrenching, beautiful romance about the struggles of imperfect people in an imperfect relationship (although to me they were perfect), then I’d suggest this one. Check out my review.
What are you currently reading?
I’m still reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman. This book is actually going a lot slower than I anticipated but because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had much time to read (and blog and post on IG), I haven’t really had the chance to let it sink in. I’m liking it so far though, especially the humor, so I think once I get the chance to devote good reading time to this, I will enjoy it more! I’m also ashamed to admit that I’m still reading Little Darlings by Melanie Golding because the pub date was 30 April; but I’m still adamant that I won’t read it at night, which really only leaves weekend mornings. It’s not a bad book though and I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read of it so far (50%), even though I want to throw the husband off a cliff and what Laura experiences gives me insane anxiety 😂 Hopefully this weekend will bring me some uninterrupted reading time to finish the latter and get through a big chunk of the former!
What will you read next?
I plan to join the Asian Readathon this month to celebrate Asian characters and authors, so in honor of the challenge I’m thinking of reading The Vegetarian by Han Kang next. It seems like a short read, but very twisted and full of magical realism. This aspect has me feeling wary of reading it (I’m not really a fan of magical realism), but I’m keen to at least give it a try. Read the synopsis on Goodreads. Looking through my shelves, I realized that I really don’t have a lot of Asian authors on there, but I hope to remedy that from this month onward!
