Last Read

Siddhartha.jpg

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.

Currently Reading

ruin-and-rising

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

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.

Up Next

hag-seed

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.

  1. Ditching responsibilities to finish a book is always the right thing to do. 😀 Ooo hope you love A Promise of Fire.

    I’ve been meaning to read Siddhartha for years. Ruin and Raising is incredible, whenever I see someone else reading Grisha books, it makes me want to reread them (Darkling <3).

    • Siddhartha is a good one! I hope you can make time for it, it’s a pretty quick read if you don’t break it up the way I did.
      I’m gong to miss this series. I know the Six of Crows books are out, but these characters were amazing. (Darkling <3)

  3. Andrea ( aka rokinrev) says:

    Hag-Seed is fantastic! I have yet to read a Hogarth Shakespere that isn’t

  4. I am happy you liked Siddhartha! Like I have said before, I need to read it again because I always get something new from it as I age. I have not read Ruin and Rusing yet because I was spoiled the day after it pubbed, but I have promised myself will get to it next year. It is good to take time off from things to read. I fully support this. 😊 I read Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last and hated it, but most of her fans seemed to have not liked it either, so I am still going to read A Handmaid’s Tale at some point. Thanks for TMTing! I am off to do all of your shares. ☺

    • Spoilers make me stabby. I knew some things going in, but there were enough little surprises that it made up for it.
      I never know where to start with Atwood, she has so many books and the cover lover in me is always so turned off by the way her books look. It’s like they’ve fallen out of another decade. As a kid I seriously thought that she was dead because the covers always looked so dated. Even Hag-Seed looks like it came out 3 decades ago and it just released this month.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
