I contemplated all day if I should post this because day 6 was a complete fail :< It was a thunderstorm and hail kind of a day which just puts me into the mood to lay on the couch and watch tv all day. Although, instead of doing that I got sucked into a Reddit vortex instead. Which is also irritating because if I was going to be reading I should have been reading my readathon books. I don’t often have lazy days though so I’m trying to not beat myself up too much about it. That does mean that I’m probably only going to finish the 3 books that I have already read earlier since I have lots of stuff planned for Sunday.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I read a whole 6 pages of this. I think this book is superbly written and I have so many thoughts on this but I feel like they are half formed because I only know a little more than half the story. I definitely feel like you could administer a personality test based on who you think the baby belongs to. Ng does an incredible job of not taking sides and just leaving it up the reader to decide. I’m also really annoyed at the character of Izzy. I don’t understand her intense rudeness to others. Well, her mom I understand but not the way she talks to strangers and family friends. I also can’t believe this book was written in 2017 and yet perfectly captures 1997.
What She Knew by Gilly Macmillian
I only read 4% more of this book. I remember hearing this book has a great ending and I have an idea of what I want to happen and I can’t wait to see if I’m right. I don’t want to say what it is in case I’m right or close to right and accidentally spoil someone. I will say at 11% into this that I can’t imagine anyone who enjoys thrillers not liking this book.
Books Completed: 3
My new goal is to hopefully have these two books finished by the time I post my readathon wrap up on Tuesday. Hopefully day 7 is a much better reading day.
