Scavenger: Evolution by Timothy C. Ward – Goodreads
Listened to this for the Audavoxx newsletter and really enjoyed it. It’s a gritty post apocalyptic tale where survival comes at a high cost. It’s a pretty intense listen, though the narrator has a really slow reading voice (though it’s really good) and I had to put it on 1.5 speed just for it sound like a normal pace.
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi – Goodreads
TSTQ is a beautifully written book with some excellent use of Hindu mythology and Indian culture, but while I loved the imagery I didn’t really connect with the characters. I do like the plot and the fact that it felt like one of those ‘epics’ of old. I’ll probably remember some aspects but forget most of it.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – Goodreads
This was a total “meh” read for me…which is disappointing as it’s supposed to be peculiar. Though I guess it is. The writing isn’t that strong and the fact that the story is framed by the pictures themselves makes it seem stiff.
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi – Goodreads
Just started so I have no real opinion of it yet, but the writing has a nice flow to it and shouldn’t take me that long to read.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling – Goodreads
I’m so love with this! I’m about halfway through it already (again for the second time this year) and the illustrations are fantastic. I’m making myself read the book and not look ahead at the images, so it’s been really rewarding.
