Recent Reads (May 18-24, 2020)

Hello fellow bookworms. Happy Monday! Another week passed by and I feel like I have done nothing, not even blogging. But it’s okay, it’s fine to slow down a little (well that’s what I tell myself).

I have not been reading much lately, I don’t know if it’s because of my reread ofย The Hunger Games trilogyย or I am just lazy this week. On the good side, I managed to finish a book and managed to start another without finishing my current reads.๐Ÿคฃ

I will not make this intro too long, but let’s get into the book!

Get to Know the Fantasy Reader Tag

Books are my escape to the real world. Contemporary books are too close to the reality that I found myself shying away from them. When I read a book, especially a good one, I feel like I was transported to whatever world the book has opened up for me. I was part of the magic, the chaos, and the politics. For this reason, fantasy has been my go-to genre ever since I’ve become a reader.

I was not tagged by anyone but after seeing this Get to Know the Fantasy Reader Tagย from Sammie of The Book Wyrm’s Den I know I have to do it.

So I will keep this intro short and get into the tag.

SYNOPSIS:

Narrator Nick Carraway tells the story of his neighbour Jay Gatsby, whose parties at his Long Island mansion are as lavish as his past is mysterious.

So when Huston’s wife and children are found brutally murdered in their home, the community reacts with shock and anger. Huston has also mysteriously disappeared, and suddenly, the town celebrity is suspect number one.

Sergeant Ryan DeMarco has secrets of his own, but he can’t believe that a man he admired, a man he had considered a friend, could be capable of such a crime. Hoping to glean clues about Huston’s mind-set, DeMarco delves into the professor’s notes on his novel-in-progress.
