About Books, Not Life

So… life. It’s been… interesting.

I know, I know, talk about vague. I don’t want to drone on and on about what’s going on for me right now though. At this point, they’re not things I want to talk about. So instead, let’s talk about books. Because I love books.

Over the last couple of weeks, my reading has still been on the slower side (K-drama’s fault). I read MY PLAIN JANE by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. This is the second book in the My Lady Janies series, but they’re standalone books. You don’t have to read MY LADY JANE first, although I highly recommend you do because it’s awesome. MY PLAIN JANE is a twist on Jane Eyre, with ghosts and ghost hunters, and where Charlotte Bronte and Jane Eyre are friends. As with the first one, the voice is really what makes this book stand out. So funny and witty and clever. I loved it.

Then I read MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This book shows a woman make two different choices in one moment, and then the book follows both paths and where both of these choices take her. I wasn’t sure I’d like it, but I really did. I was never confused about the two separate storylines, and the characters were really relatable and interesting. Voice was good too. The other thing that really kept me into this book was that in one of the storylines, the MC is in the hospital. I was reading this while at the hospital (not for me). It really made it interesting to see the parallels in what I was doing right then with what was happening in the book.

I also DNF’d a book last week but I think it was my mood more than the book itself. It’s a third in a series and I really liked the first two, but I just wasn’t feeling it right then so maybe I’ll give it another try later.
