Hello? *moves cobwebs out of the way* Is anyone still here?
Sorry for the random hiatus. Long story short, I received some health-related news that, while everything is fine now, left me feeling rather depressed at the time. I took a break from social media, for the most part, and thus blogging. I finally am starting to feel more like myself, however, and look forward to picking this back up.
I haven’t been reading a whole lot (another reason I took a break from blogging), but I am reading a few things.
I started listening to The Weight of Lies by Emily Carpenter. This book has family drama, murder, some mystery. I am about halfway done. The reader is doing okay, but not my favorite. The writing seems juvenile in some parts, especially the dialogue. But I am completely sucked in and cannot wait to find out what happens.
I also finally picked up Revenants: The Odyssey Home by Scott Kauffman. I am about 60 or so pages into this and really am starting to get sucked in. This is a historical fiction piece about a teenager, Betsy, who has been forced to work as a candy striper. There’s some mystery surrounding a certain patient, which I am starting to get into now. I cannot wait to learn more about this secret guy.
I picked up It by Stephen King via Kindle after watching the new movie. I was a big fan of the mini-series from the 90s (we actually ordered it from Amazon the night we watched the remake) and I am rather surprised that I have yet to pick this one up. I have read very little Stephen King, so I am looking forward to reading this. I decided to read it for October, to have something scary on my list, but I think I’ve only read like 6 pages. [Still trying to get back into the reading groove.]
Harmless Like You by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan is a beautifully written piece. I have had this for a while now and I am so glad I’ve finally picked it up. This is contemporary, literary piece that is written in the most beautiful prose. I’m still in the first part of the book, discussing the main character, Yuki’s, teenage years. I am very excited to see where this goes and get into the family secrets.
So…what’s been going on during my month (and then some) long hiatus? What books have you been obsessed with?
