You can tell I’m running low on inspiration when I’m re-using an idea I did not that long ago, but ever so slightly different. I promise that I’ll try and get some books finished soon so I can have some long time coming reviews up, yay!
Anyway, here are the books I have left to read on my Netgalley reading list/the book I am currently reading from said list and other books I am currently reading that aren’t a part of Netgalley, just because I think it’s interesting. I’ve cut down a lot on the list, and haven’t really requested anything new – being responsible for once!
Flying With a Broken Wing
Earlier on in the year, I made a private vow to myself that I would try to read more diverse books than not. This follows a girl called Cam who is visually impaired and was abandoned by her mother from birth and her dad was a causality from World War Two (I’ll be honest, I don’t know what that means). Cam has really bad luck, and I believe she wants to go to a school for people who are visually impaired.
I’ve never heard of this book and I’ve never read a review, good or bad, not from my memory. I don’t know if this is OwnVoices, or if it will even be good representation for disabilities but nontheless I’ll be getting to this soon. The archive date is only in a couple of weeks.
The End We Start From
I admit that I didn’t even click to see what this book was about before requesting it. One of my favourite YouTubers, Jen Campbell, tweeted a picture of this book and I have loved every book that I’ve ever read because of her recommendations so…it was just instant.
It follows a woman who gives birth during a massive flood in London, and flees for her safety and for her baby. It sounds very poetic with beautiful imagery and although I’m sure this will probably trigger my anxiety, I’m still excited to eventually get around to it.
I clicked on this because anyone who knows me will know I’m a big fan of horror, especially paranormal horror. This was a very heat of the moment request, but nontheless still excited to be getting around to it – I love all kinds of paranormal horror, even the cheesy terrible ones (well, I’m still struggling to like Annabelle…)
This follows a detective and a woman called Sophie who will do all that it takes to please her love and make him have the perfect life. Sounds interesting, I’ll probably be reading this in October. Horror month!
I have been reading this for a while, it’s quite a big book. As soon as I found out about this, I requested it from NetGalley and so far I’m really enjoying it and all the representation that has been given to us. There’s some things I’m uncomfortable with, like the asexual rep is a little off and there’s a scene that has been pointed out as racist by a POC, but otherwise I’m enjoying it.
Feel Good 101
This was not requested but bought for me by one of my lovely mutuals on Twitter. I was waiting for this book to come out for a majority of the year and I’m so excited about it. I read a little bit on the day I got it but truly dug into a majority of it today as I spent a lot of time waiting around. I can’t wait to write a review on this soon because there’s so many things I want to talk about and…yeah. That review may be long, but it’ll be a good one!
So that’s it! I see this as a book to-do list. I also have unread books with me here at home, just a small little handful, that I just haven’t been too much in the mood to read lately. I’m more into comics right now. Hopefully, I’ll pick up my fast reading pace soon enough.
Until next time,
