I thought it was about time for me to talk about the next 5 books I have read so far this year.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Wild Robot by Peter Brown
This is a middle grade book that I randomly heard about on bookTube and thought it sounded cute. It’s about a robot that has made a life on an island and doesn’t realize what her intended purpose was. To be honest it is cute…..Buuuuut this was written for someone much younger than I thought it was going to be. I was expecting more of A Monster Calls type writing. I think I was just not the target audience for this book.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Sacrifice by Indrajit Garai
This short story collection has a common theme of sacrifice. All the circumstances are different but all hard decisions were made. It was a very interesting, I don’t often read short stories so I think it says something about how much I like this one giving it 4 stars. Here is my full review if you are so intrigued.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Authority by Jeff Vandermeer
The second book in the Southern Reach Trilogy. So I can literally tell you nothing about the plot of this book without spoiling the first one. All I can say is this book does not pick up where the last one left off and it is written in a different way. Many people didn’t like this one but I would recommend making it too the end, it’s worth it if you need to know what happens like I do.
⭐️⭐️ The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Vaillant
This all started because I thought this book sounded interesting so I made my significant dork listen to the audio book. Well he really liked it bought me a copy and I was convinced. A non-fiction book about a tiger in Russia that has a vendetta… Well I found the author to go on major tangents about random history that has absolutely nothing to do with the story he was telling. I loved the stuff about the tiger but I go really bored when he started talking about the Russian politics and the history of a town.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Illustrated Dictionary of Snark by Lawrence Dorfman
This is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Lots of quotes of many different subject matters, with lots of attitude and sarcasm. It’s fun and great to just flip through.
Alright those are the next five books I have read so far. Let me know if any of these are on your TBR of better yet if you’ve read any of them.
