Siddhartha by Herman Hesse – Goodreads
This was a recommendation from La La herself, and I quite enjoyed it! I read it in serial format thanks to Serial Reader, and I think this is one of those books that does well when broken up like that. At first glance it seems like a simple story about a man trying to find his way to true peace, the writing is simple and at a surface level look it’s easy to grasp and understand. But there is so much depth hidden in this one. It has some vague Buddhist qualities to it , but ultimately seems more individually focused and open to interpretation.
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo – Goodreads
So this has to go back this afternoon…and at the time I’m typing this up I’m only a little over half way done. Such is my life at the moment, so I’m taking a break from responsibilities today to finish reading it. I’m loving it so far and it’s great to be back in the Grisha universe. I can’t say too much because the last book ina series is basically a giant spoiler, but I’ve had so many ‘hell yeah’ moments so far that I’m mad at myself for waiting this long to read it.
The Machines of Bellatrix by Cary Caffrey – Goodreads
I’ve been meaning to listen to this for a while…but in taking on the Audavoxx reviewing and the reading slumps I just never made time. But I’m back at it, and hopefully I can get through it this week. Suko and Sigrid are perfection ❤ and Kristen James’ narrartion is on point as always.
A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet – Goodreads
This was a book club read…for this month? Last month? Honestly I have no idea…but it was a book club read at some point and my digital hold for the ebook came in finally, so I’m giving it a whirl. So far I like it and the rather interesting use of the Greek gods in a fantasy world is pretty fantastic.
Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood – Goodreads
I’ve never read an Atwood novel before. They’ve been recommend countless times, which is probably why I avoided them for so long. But this one was up for review by Blogging for Books and I figured now is as good a time as any and it has wonderful reviews already. It seems promising as it retells Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and I do love the Bard.
