The Wives by Tarryn Fisher || I had been wanting to try something by Tarryn Fisher for quite some time and The Wives sounded interesting. It’s about this weird dynamic between a wife, her husband, and his two mysterious other wives. They agreed to have a polygamous relationship but she isn’t allowed to know anything about them. Now she’s getting curious and decides to go investigate. I really enjoyed the idea of this and it started off quite strong, but the direction it ended up going in… not for me. In the end, I just didn’t enjoy the overall plotline.
Heartstopper (Vol 1, 2 & 3) by Alice Oseman || The last two weeks have been kind of hectic, starting my internship and with some family things going on, I haven’t had a lot of time to read (or blog). So I decided to finally try out Heartstopper, a romance graphic novel series, after all the praise it has received in the past year. I ended up reading it online (it’s available on tapas) and I was NOT disappointed! It took me a second to get used to the art style, but once I did that I couldn’t stop and ended up reading all three volumes in a day. Charlie and Nick are just so incredibly cute together (and that’s coming from a huge cynic). They melted my heart and I can’t wait for more of their story!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (#7) by J.K. Rowling || Re-read || I’ve been listening to this since the start of the year and had planned to read it throughout January. I’ve been taking it slow so I need a bit more time, but now I’m kind of stuck at the same spot. Now that I’m busier with my internship and all, I’m tired in my free time and I can’t listen to this without falling asleep.😅
Seven Deathly Shadows by CourtneyAlameda & Valynne E. Maetani || So far I’m about a third of the way into this and it has been fun. It incorporates a lot of Japanese folklore which is really cool Also, the main character is named Kira and she goes to seek help from shinigami… hello Death Note? It’s not similar in plot (so far) and this Kira is nothing like that Kira, but I can’t help but think about that manga every time I read “Kira”. Anyways… it’s taking quite a bit of time to set everything up and is a bit info-dumpy at times. But I’m still optimistic!
The Other People
By C.J. Tudor
Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl’s face appear in the rear window. She mouths one word: ‘Daddy.’ It’s his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.
He never sees her again.
Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead.
Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway. Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them. Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe’s daughter.
Then, the car that Gabe saw driving away that night is found, in a lake, with a body inside and Gabe is forced to confront events, not just from the night his daughter disappeared, but from far deeper in his past.
His search leads him to a group called The Other People.
If you have lost a loved one, The Other People want to help. Because they know what loss is like. They know what pain is like. They know what death is like.
There’s just one problem . . . they want other people to know it too.
