The meme that we use to share what we read this past week and what our plans are for the upcoming week. Now hosted by The Book Date.
Despite readathon the week before, I still got some books read last week. No readathon hangover for me this time, yay!
I finished Tananarive Due’s short story collection Ghost Summer, of which I read the novella included during readathon.I loved almost every story in this and can absolutely recommend it to fans of atmospheric, slow horror and Southern Gothic.
And then I was in the mood for more creepy reading and read Rin Chupeco’s The Girl from the Well. It was pretty creepy though not luckily not enough to give me bad dreams and I don’t think readers of horror will be too scared. Maybe warning for the author not being Japanese.
And then yesterday, I was in the mood for something cozy, so I got out my mom’s Miss Marple book and curled up with freshly-baked scones and ginger-curcuma tea.
Yesterday was the start of Deepika’s R.K. Narayan readalong and so today I started reading his novel The English Teacher. Really enjoying it so far, thanks so much Deepika!
I’m also reading Durrow’s The Girl Who Fell from The Sky, which is fascinating so far. Less about being biracial than I’d thought, but I’m still enjoying it a lot.
And I’m juggling some non-fiction reading, still, but dammit this week I will finish at least one of them! I’ve set myself a deadline!
No major events or plans for me except for preparing for the oral final exam. So my reading next week will probably include these:
