I’m taking from Taking On A World Of Words for this one as an attempt to try and keep better track of my weekly reading habits. The meme is simple, it asks three questions and you answer them.
Honestly, my reading has been slow lately. I've spend more time writing and moving than I have had time for reading. Which is unfortunate and I hate it. But I did do something!!
What are you currently reading?
I've started a few new books this week and I'm super excited about all of them actually! The newest start is Forrest for the Trees by Kilby Blades which is the first book in a romance series. I'm just a few chapters in and so far it's quite fun and intriguing. I also am nearly done with The Recovery Agent by Janet Evanovich which is proving to be quite the adventure story! Her books are more comfort reads for me so I'm glad to finally read her new one! I'm also just starting Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne which is part of my TBR for this month. I like Junes Verne and I believe this one is one of the shortest that I have by him. I'm also rereading Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss which is one of my favorite fantasy stories and I can't recommend it enough! I am planning on doing both the physical book and the audiobook this time so we shall see how it goes.
What have you recently finished?
Over The Garden Wall: Soulful Symphonies by Birdie Willis and Pat McHale - 4/5 - I enjoyed this comic. It was a fun and spooky story following out favorite Over the Garden Wall characters. This one taking place in a theatre in a deserted town the trio stumbles upon.
Bluff by Jane Stanton Hitchcock - dnf @ 25% - I tried to get through this one but the murder mystery I was promised hadn't happened by the 25% mark and I found that it was more about class and drama than I usually care to read.
Invisible Differences: A Story of Asperger's, Adulting, and Living and Life in Full Color by Julie Dachez - 5/5 - I picked this up on a whim at work and it was INCREDIBLY well done! I can't talk enough about this graphic novel. The illustrations were lovely, and it really depicted the life of someone who is attempting to get recognized. Can't recommend enough, even if you are just curious what Asperger's Syndrome is!
Slaying the Dragon: A Secret History of Dungeons & Dragons by Ben Riggs - 4.5/5 - This was such an interesting story and very well done. There will be a full review up tomorrow.
