What I’ve Been Reading Lately #3 | blogmas day 22

I’m back with another one of these posts because I’ve read 9 books since the last one! I’ll try and do one more before the end of the year too, because although there’s only 9 days of the year left, I’m still hoping to read a bunch! Hyperlinks in the titles are to reviews on my blog.

For uni, I read:

  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (4/5): I completely forgot how great this book was! Flynn’s writing style is honestly amazing, and I really want to read more of her novels.
  • In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (4/5): another reread, this book has completely changed my life and I owe it a lot. Plus, it’s a great book too; Capote’s writing is something else.
  • City of Glass by Paul Auster (3.5/5): this was a really bizarre novel but I actually really enjoyed it? I think I’ll read the rest of the trilogy – they’re only novellas anyway!

And outside of uni, I read:

  • Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle (5/5): god this book was honestly incredible. It really made me think about things being, well, lost and found. I loved it.
  • Paper Avalanche by Lisa Williamson (4.5/5): this was part of a blog avalanche I did, and it was such a fantastic book. I really related to Ro, the main character, and when it comes out next year I really suggest you read it!
  • City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab (4/5): this book was perhaps a little young for me, but still scary and exciting! I’m looking forward to book #2 coming out.
  • Hot Milk by Deborah Levy (3/5): I found the writing of this book both a bit difficult and yet brilliant to deal with, but the story was something I struggled with more. Still, it was an enjoyable read.
  • Murder in the Snow by Gladys Mitchell (2/5): I feel very bad because this was a gift but I really did not like this book. It was dull, dragged on, and even the murder, which should have been really interesting and clever, was boring…
  • Listen to the Moon by Michael Morpurgo (5/5): I LOVED this book! It’s one of my absolute favourites of 2018, and I so recommend it! My review went up just yesterday, so check it out if you’d like!

I’ve actually read a lot more in the past three weeks than I thought I had, and some really great books too! Have you read any of these? Do you want to?
