Oh man! This was a weird reading month. Mainly because I started a book on the 1st and only finished it on the 31st. And another, I’ve been ‘reading’ as an audiobook for two months. I’ve been reaching for more comic books this month but I did get through three novels, which were…
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
This was the audiobook I was listening to, and it was the prompt for my Getting Back into Audiobooks post! I liked it more in the beginning than I did towards the end. I think a book managing to stay good for 20 hours, is a real test, and this just didn’t cut it for me. I’m thinking Neil Gaiman just isn’t my kind of author because The Sleeper and the Spindle wasn’t for me either.
I loved the travel aspect, the murder mystery aspect but the Gods part just fell flat for me. Twenty hours later, I just felt shortchanged by the whole thing and don’t have much to say for my experience!
The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena*
This isn’t being published until July 14th so look out for a full review closer to the release date!
Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen by Alison Weir*
This book really needs a full review because it was just incredible. It’s rare that- as a poor student- I want to buy hardcovers, especially when I have a copy of a book in whatever form, but the idea of this six book series on my shelf in matching covers just makes me the human equivalent of the heart-eyes emoji.
