Recent Reads (June 22-28, 2020)

Hello, fellow bookworms! Another week has passed again which means it’s time for me to look back at my reading week. Doing this weekly wrap-up is quite fun as I can keep track of how well I am reading for a week.

Reading-wise, I am not reading as much as before. For this month, I am into reading physical books. No audio, no ebook. And it felt good, especially when it lessens my physical TBR. However, the number of books that I’ve read was fewer than last month as I am only reading during my free time at work and before bed. But still, I am having a good time and I am hoping to carry over this habit next month.

But with my chitchat aside, I managed to finished 2 books and 1 novella for this week and I am very excited to talk about it. So let’s get into the books.

 

 


Currently Reading πŸ“–

The Well of Ascension

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

β† I am listening to this in audiobook and like I said earlier, I am not into an audiobook lately so I haven’t been reading a lot of this. But I managed to read 42% of this book, which is a lot since I am only at 15% last week. I am not that into the story but I am liking it more than when I started it. But I just don’t like an audiobook lately so I don’t know when I will finish this. Quite frustrating since I am not on track with my Cosmerealong schedule.

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire

β† I just started this book. I am only 9% into this. Hopefully, I can finish this book before the month ends. I am really looking forward to reading this. This is one of my anticipated books of the year. This book is below 300 pages so I am confident that I can finish this before the month ends.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Rating: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•

β† I love this book. The author is a genius to come up with such a concept and incorporates the Greek gods, goddesses, and other known creatures in the story. I love all the characters in this book, even the villains. I just think that the twist near the ending was quite predictable and the reasoning of the villain was quite shallow. But I am still giving this a 5-Moon rating because I can see what the author is setting up for the series.

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Rating: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•

β† I love this book more than the first one. The plot and the twists are much better, in my opinion. Once again, I love the characters and their friendship. I enjoyed their adventure and how the story wraps up. Also, the ending made me want to pick up the next book in an instant.

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Rating: πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•πŸŒ•

β† I can’t believe that a book this short has more impact than any other book. I don’t read non-fiction often but I seriously enjoyed this book. The book as a whole is an eye-opener. There are a lot of things that one could learn from this. If there is one thing that students need to read in school, it is this. I highly recommend it.

 

 

 


So that is all for this weekly wrap-up. I will be posting the book reviews for the books that I have finished this week. So stay tuned for that.

Until next time!
