A solid reading month. Nothing really got me in the gut, but I loved most of these books! Roar was the only one I really detested. Look at that cover, though! I really love how it looks in this graphic. If I ever get published I would kill to have a cover like that. Alas. I’m also not quite sure how I read only five books this month when last month I read four including War and Peace. Maybe it’s because I had been reading one of those books from last month forever…
Anyway! I’m still reading the same non-fiction book from last month, which is Before They Were Belly Dancers: European Accounts of Female Entertainers in Egypt, 1760–1870 by Kathleen W. Fraser. Again, I’m only reading from this like an hour a week, so it’s slow going. Plus I’m savoring it. It’s literally giving me thrills as I read it (yes, I am a nerd). I just started Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie Dao yesterday! I can’t believe I managed to get it out of the library so quickly.
This month I’m also buddy reading Wuthering Heights with Rachel. And I just bought Jane Eyre, so I hope to read that as well. I hope I continue to enjoy my foray into the ~classics. Finally, I also recently acquired The Bloodprint by Ausma Zehanat Khan, which I’m really excited to read.
