It’s been a while since I wrote a currently-reading-post, so I thought it was time to do another one! At the moment, I’m reading three books.
The Golem and the Jinni, by Helene Wecker
I just started this the other day, and it’s my current book for fun. I haven’t gotten very far yet, because I’ve been focusing on reading for class. However, as soon as I started reading it, I knew I would like it. Two chapters in, it is atmospheric and feels like a fairy tale retelling. Super excited about this one so far!
Gösta Berlings saga, by Selma Lagerlöf
This was supposed to be finished for class today, but I only read 100 out of 443 pages ^.^’ . It is a lot better than I thought it would be, though, so I think I will actually finish it. So far, it is kind of slow, but especially talking about it in class today made me want to see how everything wraps up. Hopefully, I will get to the end before the year is over ,^.^, .
La Belle Sauvage, by Philip Pullman
I am listening to this on audiobook, because recently I was in such a mood to pick it up. Google said you could read it without reading the original His Dark Materials trilogy as it functions as a separate thing, but so far I think it helps that I have read Northern Lights previously. Perhaps not in terms of understanding the world, but there are details I think would be slight spoilers, at least for the first book. So be aware of that if you haven’t read His Dark Materials, I am enjoying this so far, so will definitely finish it.
That was all I had to talk about today! I am hoping to get back into doing these kinds of posts, as a mid-month reading update instead of tbrs or “part one wrap-ups”.
