What I've Been Reading

I’ve been a little absent lately, but I have actually been reading for once this year. I’m still thirty books behind on my reading goal which Goodreads keeps telling me, but we won’t talk about that. Here are a few of the books that I have read and loved, felt meh about or been totally conflicted by...

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid

What can I say? Just ohmygosh!? Ella from Novelly Ella explained the premise of this book to me as a woman being interviewed about her life and the seven husbands she'd had which doesn't sound suuuper interesting, but holy shit, if anyone could make this a gripping, tantalizing read with a twist, it's definitely Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Trust me, the hype is worth it.

Hunted, by Meagan Spooner

Okay, so this one is an older one that I have been meaning to read forever. It's been on my TBR since way back when it was released in 2017 and you know what... I didn't love it. I felt too old for it, and maybe I'm just over the fairytale retelling plot because it just irritated me. Also, I wasn't the biggest fan of the MC and that didn't help.

Meh, would pass on this.

My Sister, the Serial Killer, by Oyinkan Braithwaite

What. The. Heck. How do I explain that I loved this book so much that I couldn't put it down, but also it left me feeling so deeply unsatisfied, but also if it had gone any other way I would have been annoyed about it. It took me a week to rate this on Goodreads after I finished it because I was so conflicted. I'm still conflicted.

I need a support group for this book. Someone, please talk to me.

What have you been reading lately? Have you read any of the books I talked about above? What were your thoughts?
