Cheers to the freaking weekend, I’ll drink to that. The biggest, coldest glass of orange juice you have, ma’am. It has been a week but somehow, miraculously, I’ve made it to the other side. Blessings everywhere. Welcome to my first ever reading queue, Friday Reads! I made a banner and everything so you know it’s super official. This is the post where every week I will talk about what I’ve read that week, what I’m currently reading, and what I want to read the following week. And because it’s me, it’s in list form. Long live lists. Let’s jump in.
What I’ve read this week:
- Averno by Louise Glück. This poetry collection is an “extended lamentation” about life, relationships, myth, and their relation to us. I really enjoyed this collection! I gave it 4/5 stars.
- Princeless Vol 1: Save Yourself by Jeremy Whitley, Mia Goodwin, Jung-Ha Kim. This story follows a princess locked in a tower by her parents in the hopes that she’ll be rescued by a handsome prince, in a fit she decides to rescue herself. This is her journey. This was a really fun and self-aware read! I highly recommend it. I gave it 4/5 stars.
What I’m reading:
- Mistaking Each Other for Ghosts by Lawrence Raab. This a poetry collection by a seasoned poet. I’m finding it very interesting so far. I haven’t delved too far into it just yet.
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Yes, you read that right! Harry Potter has always been such a big part of my life. On my 22nd birthday, I decided I wanted to reread the whole HP series because I thought it would be interesting to see how my thoughts and opinions about the books and its’ characters have changed. So far, so good.
What I’m going to read:
- Princeless Vol 2: Get Over Yourself by Jeremy Whitley, Emily Martin. It’s the continuation from Volume 1.
- Blue Lily, Blue Lily by Maggie Stiefvater. This is the third book in The Raven Cycle series. I started this series about a year ago and I’m ready to finish, finally.
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater. The fourth book in the series.
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. Previously, my least favorite book in the series. I wonder how it’ll go and if anything will change.
That’s it for this week, folks. Be sure to comment if you’ve read anything interesting this week, any fun work anecdotes you feel compelled to share, or the best yet, any and all thoughts you have about Harry Potter. See you soon!
