Recent Reads (Apr. 27-May 03, 2020)

I can’t believe that the month of April is already over and we are now on the 4th day of May. Am I the only one who feels like the days are passing by so fast yet it felt longer?

With that aside, my last week of April and the beginning of May has been a good reading time. I am able to catch up with the books that I am supposed to read and review. I did not read a lot but I managed to read a decent amount.

Without further ado, let’s get into the books.

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

โ† I’ve been reading this book for a month now. I decided to give this book another chance and I managed to read 1 chapter. I was contemplating on rereading this again from the very beginning because I find that I am still into the story. However, I feel like it’s the narrator in the audiobook that I am listening to that makes my reading experience different. Warner’s narrator is not how I imagined him so maybe that’s why I feel like he was out of character. But when I read the book on my own, it felt fine. So I am not giving up just yet with this book.

The Case of the Vanishing Blonde and Other True Crime Stories by Mark Bowen

โ† I just started this book yesterday and it was okay. I managed to read 16%. This is the first true crime story that I read and the first story that I am currently reading delves into a heavier topic than I expected. I am looking forward to reading the other stories.

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux

Rating: ๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•

โ† I love how heartbreaking and scary this book is. I stay away from classics because I have a feeling that I will find the writing style hard to understand, but how wrong am I. The musical might be good but the book is the best. Gaston Leroux has created a world that hooked me and make me care for each character.

Deviously Sincere by Alayna Hallward

Rating: ๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ˜๐ŸŒ‘

โ† This is a psychological thriller following serial killers who think that women are devious creature, hence they should die. I like the flow of the story and it is the first psychological thriller that I have read that the mindset of the killer was so disturbingly twisted and yet you can see that they believe they are doing the right thing. I just don’t like the main character. Also the ending was too rush and confusing, especially the shifting of POV.

 

 


That is all for the books that I have read in the past week and what I am currently reading. I really don’t want to give up toย Restore Meย just yet. But hopefully I can finish it sooner because I am sick of seeing it on myย Recent Readsย post every week.๐Ÿคฃ

I hope you guys have a good reading week!

Until next time.
