What was the last book you read?
Did this book meet your expectations?
I would have to say yes. I knew it was probably going to be well-written literary fiction, and I definitely wasn’t wrong about that. It’s not my cup of tea, but I can’t fault Whitehead for his realistic portrayal of 1950s-60s Harlem in brilliant English.
Will you recommend this book to others?
If I find someone who I know digs realistic historical fiction or just really loves reading books set in New York, I’d definitely recommend it.
What is your current read?
Why did you pick this book?
I wanted to read something by an indigenous author for Indigenous History Month. I’ve also had this book on my TBR for a while, so I’m happy to finally be reading it!
How much time do you think you’ll take to finish your current read?
I can never guess well when it comes to reading time. It just depends on my mood and on how readable the book is. For this one, which is YA, I’d say it will probably take me a few days, if I dedicatedly read this and only this (I am not a monogamous reader, so…).
What genre would you like to read next?
I’d love to read a cozy mystery. It’s getting to be the winter season, and I do love a good cozy mystery to curl up with under a warm blanket in snowy season. I’d also go for a cute romance, for similar reasons. Something that will warm my heart!
Mention some books you’re eyeing!
I’m a big fan of Joan He, so I’m really excited to read her newest book, Strike the Zither, an Asian Fantasy YA novel. I’m also starting to get on the Alice Feeney train, after reading her Rock Paper Scissors novel, so I’d like to follow that up with her newest mystery/thriller Daisy Darker. I’m also excited/intrigued by The Book Eaters, so maybe that, too.
I’m not good at tagging individuals, so I usually end these things with a “You’re all Tagged”! sort of thing. So if you’ve read this far, consider yourself tagged. Feel free to comment below with your answers, too.
