Books I Read This Week 2018 – 47

Considering I had a lot of travel this week, I would have liked to read more but I read a few long books and I loved at least two so I am happy with the way this week turned out.

I started with All Your Perfects because Stephanie likes it so much and it was good but I think I’ve read too many like this lately so it was just okay for me.

I then moved to A River of Stars which I’d checked out of the library a bazillion times but I finally read it and it was pretty good. 

The Optimist’s Guide to Letting Go was also so so. I need to take a break from the lighter books I think.

I moved to Family Trust which I heard was good. It was okay. Imho, it was too long and would have been just as good a book at half the length.

I was looking forward to A Ladder to the Sky all year. Boyne wrote one of my favorite novels so I couldn’t wait to read this one. Even though the main character is such an awful person I still loved reading this book. I love the storytelling. Boyne is amazing at capturing the essence of humans. He has wonderful characters and is an amazing storyteller.

I then read Someone Like Me because I’ve loved all of M.R. Carey’s previous novels but this one might have been my very favorite. So magical, so different, I loved it.

Here’s to another good week.
