It’s time for another reading updates.
1. The midnight library by Matt Hiag
Trigger warning for suicide
Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?
Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.
I finished reading this book just recently and i thought it was a cute book. It didn’t impact me the way the humans(his other book) did but it was still a solid book.
2. Hercule Poirot’s Christmas
In Hercule Poirot’s Christmas, the holidays are anything but merry when a family reunion is marred by murder — and the notoriously fastidious investigator is quickly on the case. The wealthy Simeon Lee has demanded that all four of his sons — one faithful, one prodigal, one impecunious, one sensitive — and their wives return home for Christmas. But a heartwarming family holiday is not exactly what he has in mind. He bedevils each of his sons with barbed insults and finally announces that he is cutting off their allowances and changing his will. Poirot is called in the aftermath of Simeon Lee’s announcement.
This is the second Agatha Christie book I’ve read with the first one being and then there were none. I found this mystery to be really fun, the suspects were really suspicious and I have finished this as well. You will see my rating of this book in my wrap-ups.
3. The boy, the fox, the mole and the horse.
Enter the world of Charlie’s four unlikely friends, discover their story and their most important life lessons.
The conversations of the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse have been shared thousands of times online, recreated in school art classes, hung on hospital walls and turned into tattoos. In Charlie’s first book, you will find his most-loved illustrations and some new ones too.
I loved the illustrations in this book and it is very short so you can read this to a kid and be finished in a few minutes. The story and the lessons in here are very sweet and really deep for a children’s book.
4. Rhythm of war by Brandon Sanderson
I have finished reading rhythm of war and i will give my thoughts on it in this month’s wrap up.
5. Fires of vengeance by Evan Winter
I am 50% through the second book of the series and i am enjoying it. It’s nice to see Tau being further developed and the world is getting bigger and has more depth.
6. Jade city by Fonda Lee.
I have heard so many great things about this book and i’ve just started reading it and it seems good so far.
7. Man of the people by Chinua Achebe.
This is the second time i am reading a Chinua Achebe book. The first book i read was things fall apart which is his most famous book. I am only a few pages in and now that i’m a little bit older, i really appreciate Achebe’s writing.
These are the books that i’m currently reading. Have you read any of these books? If you have what were your thoughts on them? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
