Hi friends! How is your reading week? I have recently been productive in reading during the weekdays rather than the weekend which is a bit of a surprise for me. I used to catch up on my reading over the weekends before but now I catch up with sleep instead.
I managed to finish quite a lot of books over the week and I could never be more proud. So without further ado, let’s talk about the books that I finished and what I am currently reading.
Currently Reading 📖
Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi
This is the 4th book to the Shatter Me Series and I don’t know how to feel about it. I just started this book and I am only 59 pages in but there are already dramas and secrets. Plus I feel like Warner is quite out of character. But I can see that everything is justifiable after what happens with the third book but still I am not liking it or maybe I am not in the mood for it yet.

Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder
It took me so long to finish this book and I did not think that it was even worth it. I was enjoying the first half but the story really went down the hill after that. I was struggling to finish this book and the ending felt flat. Also, this is a philosophical book but the author decided to end it scientifically so NO. 1-moon for effort on making a philosophical book readable though not so accurate.
Strangle Your Gods by Matt Prinz
The main plot of the book was interesting but the storyline was quite confussing. We have 2 POVs and we only get to know the relation of each POVs near the end. Moreover, I think this book has focused more on the misfits rather than the crime itself. And once the culprit was arrested, we didn’t get to see the motive or as to why s/he kills in such a way and why did s/he murder all his victims. The execution of the story is underwhelming and quite lacking.
Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi
This is the novella following Adam from Shatter Me. And I did not like this for two reasons; first is that half of the story was most of the chapters near the end in Unravel Me but in Adam’s POV and second, ADAM.
This novella shows perfectly that Adam is the kind of guy that you wouldn’t want to be involved with in a relationship. And this justifies my hate for him.
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
I am quite aware that I am rating this book out of pure enjoyment. Because I can see the flaws of the storyline and the lack of world building. But the character developments of Juliette and the others are quite good. The action make up for the lack of the other elements. But I still think that this offers the entertaining story that I love and enjoyed. But if I were to be critical, it is not quite 5-Moon worthy.
Summer Fling by Sarah Morgan
This is a bind-up story of the first 2 books of the Glenmore Island Doctor Series. I have a thing for doctors or nurses love story because I like seeing their world and how their profession came into play with the story. Seeing them work in surgeries, emergencies and even the simple consultation is interesting to me. And the story was less than 200 pages so I easily breezed through it. Definitely worth the read especially when you need a break from all the fantasy.
That’s all for my recent reads. I hope to read more this week because we’ll be having a long weekend. But I doubt that because I’ll probably be sleeping in bed.
Until next time!
