the wives heartstopper 1 heartstopper 2 heartstopper 3

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 Deadly Hallows Seven deadly shadows

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 peopleThe 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.

I’m reading this for the Literally Dead Book Club. Super excited to be participating!


These are the books I have recently read, am currently reading and plan to read next.

Have you read any of these books?
What was the last book you finished?

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. Aaah, I love Heartstopper!! I haven’t read the third volume yet, but Nick and Charlie are just *so cute*!! I read Seven Deathly Shadows a while ago and didn’t end up enjoying it too much. It did feel very info-dumpy, and it also felt like a looott of the inspiration was from anime/manga, which is great since I love both of those! But I felt like it drew *too* much on those. I hope you end up enjoying it though!

  2. I recently got The Wives, the blurb sounds very good so hopefully I’ll like it when I actually find time to read it 😀 Have you seen the March and April picks for the Literary Dead bookclub? The march one is Platform Seven by Louise Doughty. I’ve never heard about this book before, but already got it so I can join in March as well 😀

  3. Ahh… I love Alice Oseman and I am going to read all her books, it is my mission!! I want to read Solitaire before Heartstopper as I believe the characters are introduced in that book so I thought I would do it in that order but I’m so happy to hear you fell in love with these graphic novels. They do look adorable!! 🙂

  4. I’ve been seeing some good things about Heartstopper lately. Sounds really cute! I’ve had Several Deadly Shadows recommended to me by several different people, and it sounds like you’re enjoying it, too. I’ll definitely need to read it. Hope your internship is going well! Happy reading.

  5. Seven Deadly Shadows sounds amazing. So it’s basically a manga or anime in bookform? 😀 The cover seems familiar somehow though….
    I hope you have great fun wir your current and future reads. 🙂

      1. I just read one last week by Jeff Wheeler called The Killing Fog and absolutely 5-star loved it. Julie Dao has a YA duology that was good too. The first book of that series was called Forest of a Thousand Lanterns.

    1. Once I started reading Heartstopper online I really could not stop 😋 The third one is great, I’m sure you’ll love it! Lock Every Door was a great thiller for me, I’m glad to hear you’re liking it too! Red, White & Royal Blue is not my typical read, but after all that hype I’m definitely considering giving it a try! Happy reading 😁
