Hi there! It’s been a while. Things have been pretty chaotic lately. For me… as well as pretty much everyone else on this earth. I have barely read anything from the ending of February until about two weeks ago. Mainly because I just couldn’t focus and nothing I tried reading really piqued my interest. Have any of you had trouble with that recently? Anyways, in the last two weeks I’ve finally been able to read some stuff again. YAAY! And off course I’ve been missing checking in with all of you lovely bookish people, as I always do when I’m gone for a while. So here we are 🙂

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince  You are not alone  the chalk man  quiet girl in a noisy world

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (#7) by J.K. Rowling || Can you believe this I just recently FINALLY finished this. It started out as me thinking it would be nice to read the final book in my Harry Potter re-read as my first book of the year… and then it took me ages. Well well. I think this one might actually be my least favorite book in the series. is that an unpopular opinion? Maybe I just miss the school setting.

You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen || This was on my most anticipated releases list for the first half of the year. I’ve read both of their other books. The Wife Between Us was one of my favorites last year. An Anonymous Girl I thought was really boring. This one falls right in-between the other two… pretty mediocre. The main character loves statistics and so her chapters start with some little fact or stat. Like how many people ride the train every day or the main reasons why people lie. This would then tie into the chapter, which I thought was a nice detail. The book was pretty entertaining overall. Basically, I liked some of the ideas, but the execution wasn’t all that suspenseful and I felt a little indifferent about what went down.

The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor || Hm… I like this one better than the other book I read by C.J. Tudor, The Other People. Once I was in it I was engaged and I liked how the puzzle pieces slowly fell into place. The dual perspective was pretty cool, following this friend group during one summer as kids versus now as adults. I wasn’t really blown away by anything, but I would say this was a solid read. More mystery than thriller.

A Quiet Girl in A Noisy World by Debbie Tung || This little graphic novel was so cute. A must read for all introverts. It provides a lot of relatable moments and has an uplifting message. I liked how this one was more of a cohesive story line, rather than just a collection of moments (which I have seen more often in books like this). This was really validating. Perfect for lifting your spirits on a shitty day!

Bunny

Bunny Mona Awad || I’m only one chapter into this, so not very many thoughts so far. I’ve heard this mentioned a lot lately, mostly in the context of it being very strange. This might not be for me at all, since I tend to be easily confused by weird books, but I want to give it a try. It’s supposed to be about our main character getting into this clique of girls who call each other bunny… and are doing some cult-ish things… I guess? Yes, very informative.

Sharp Objects

I’m currently still lending Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn from my library, but I’m gonna have to return it soon. So probably I’ll probably give it a try somewhere this week!


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. Yay for reading again! I’m trying to get back into it as well. This year has been really kicking my butt. I’m also doing a re-read of the Harry Potter books, although I’m only on Half-Blood Prince. I’m trying to blog them chapter by chapter as I go, which is taking a while! Hope you are enjoying your other reads as well. 🙂

  2. Lovely to hear from you Nikki! I am sorry that you struggled for so long to focus and find a book that really piqued your interest, but great to hear you’ve got your reading mojo back now. 😊The only book here I’ve read is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and re-reads always help me out of reading slumps. The last book I finished was the the enchanting, Gothic adventure and family saga, The Loving Spirit by Daphne du Maurier.

    Take care and happy reading in the coming week, and here’s my WWW post for this week: https://thebookwormchronicles.wordpress.com/2020/05/20/www-wednesday-20th-may-2020/ 🙂

  3. Welcome back!! 🙂 I’ve read all (3) of C.J. Tudor books so far, and I must say that they all have a very similar vibe, but the Chalk Man was probably my favourite of all 3.

    I heard good things about Bunny (and many people saying it was weird too 😀 ), I hope you’ll love it. Let me know what you think about it, as I was considering of picking it up as well.

    1. Thank you! ❤ It’s great to hop on here again. I do really like the writing in C.J. Tudors books. They do indeed have a very distinct vibe, from what I can tell so far. How did you feel abou the one I haven’t read (I forgot the title 😂). I’ve barely heard anyone talk about that one. Oh and I will definitely let you know my thoughts on Bunny!
