This week was quite good. Life isn't as stressful as before and I finally found my reading time -- my commute to work. Not the best one but it's my only chance to read without falling asleep. Also, unexpectedly, NEED by Joelle Charbonneau brought me out of my slump. It wasn't a very great read but it's thrilling and that kept me reading.
I hope I continue to finish more books in the next few days :)
NEED | Joelle Charbonneau
Finished this just a few hours. Done with the reading slump, I guess?
ANYWAY, I really wanted to like NEED. It was thrilling and the mystery really kept me going. And literally, it's the only thing that kept me reading. I wanted to put it down because the multiple-POV here isn't working for me (and I LOVE multiple-POVs, so why?), and I'm mad at the shallowness of these kids, and I HATE the reason for 'NEED'. This novel is just a big flat NO for me. BUT it might work for others. who knows? Review will be up soon~
The Nightingale | Kristin Hannah
Still. I know. I KNOW. But I will finish this soon. I just can't find enough time to read physical books lately. I'm like 300-somethings pages now. So patience. I AM loving this book just so you know. I learned a few more things about WWII which is great. And Isabelle is such a brave heroine and Vianne is also brave in her own way. I'm also very, very curious of how it will go from the WWII setting to its 1995 setting. Also, the romance! -- it's just a tiny part but still...
Station Fosaan (Torch World series #1) | Dee Garretson
I was invited by the publisher for a blog tour. They were like: oh here's a scifi novel set in a different planet, there might be romance, and rules that obviously the main character won't follow, and maybe some kind of uprising. And I'm like: hmmm... sounds like my thing. count me in! (well not really. but ya know me... I like scifi and book series with rebellion and stuff... so yeah...).
Revival | Stephen King
ohlook, I'm reading this book again!
I borrowed Revival late 2016 so I can read it over the holidays but I ended up reading my books so... yeah. I brought it back to the library without even finishing it. SO NOW, I got it back and I'm going to continue it!! --right after I finish The Nightingale though (which is sooooooon. I tell you.. sooon).
Revival is my first Stephen King novel. And while I don't find his writing anything special #expectations, I think that the story of the novel is far is very interesting even though it feels cliche or something. I think that there's just something I don't even know how to explain about how Stephen King just made this story out of the ordinary. I hope I'll have the words to write review for this one once I'm done. I hope...
I wasn't able to watch Shirobako this week but I got into Nanbaka which is super great!
Nanbaka | Satelight
I jumped into this anime thinking that it's purely comedy and just some chill anime I can watch but I was stand corrected. Of course, Nanbaka is super funny especially with the references from other series but around episode 4 or 5, an arc about the main character, Juugo (Uemura Yuto), is finally opened and I'm curious.
