What I read last week
And I Darken by Kiersten White
A fantasy novel set in 15th century Ottoman Empire, And I Darken features a vicious female main character. Lada was inspired by Vlad the Impaler, who was Mary Shelley’s inspiration for Dracula.
I absolutely loved this read, especially the bold and strong female characters, and I can’t wait to dive into the second book!
I’ve already written a full, spoiler-free review for it – you can read it here.
What I’m currently reading
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
The other day I forgot my current read at home, so I decided to start reading this one on my phone since I’d had the ebook for a while now.
Although I was thrown off by the southern talk and spelling the author used, I am actually enjoying this more than I thought I would. It’s a western story set in the USA in the 19th century and it’s about this girl whose father was murdered. She is on a quest to find whoever did this and punish them, to avenge her father.
That’s about all I know since I’m like 10% into the book, but I’ll tell you more about it when I finish it 😅
What I’ll be reading next
This Does Not Leave This House by Julie Coons
My hardest and most important exam is tomorrow and after that, I will have about 5 tons lifted off my shoulders, so I plan to start reading more, even though I will still have to study for upcoming finals.
My plan is to dive into This Does Not Leave this House, which was kindly sent to me by the author, Julie Coons. It’s such a short read that I’m sure I can fly through it in one sitting.
It’s an autobiography, which talks about abuse in many different contexts, such as in a romantic relationship, at school and even in your own home. I am beyond excited to read Julie’s book, even though I’m sure it’s not an easy read 😕
