This weekend’s read is going to be a little different from the past ones, because doing the Mid Year Book Freak Out tag reminded me I am very behind on my 20 in 2020 goal, and… I really need to work on that.
But first! Last weekend’s read!
Last weekend I read The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, and, er. I wasn’t a huge fan. Yoon’s writing was, by far, my favorite part about the book. Why? Insta-romance. The rest of the plot I liked a lot, but the insta-romance, which was the main plot point of the whole book, just made me cringe the entire time. If it weren’t for that ending, which I actually thought was super appropriate for the whole theme of the book, I probably would have given it 2 stars. Now, though, I really want to read another of Yoon’s books, hopefully with less insta-love, because I do really like her writing style.
Now, this weekend’s read. Looking at my list, none are particularly jumping out at me, but I think I’m going to go the safe route and to one of the historical fictions.
Due to the fact historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, there’s actually a few to choose from on the list, but I already have the audiobook for The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erickson on hand on my Hoopla app, so I’ll go with that one. If I like it, I’ll probably also read the others in the quote unquote series.
Thanks for reading!
