On the Night Table [54]

Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin | Beartown by Fredrik Backman | Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures by Cain, Thompson & Postlewait|

Happy Monday, all!

I had another outstanding reading week last week. Thanks to the very Fall-like weather, I was not motivated to go to the gym, so I ended up reading under the bed covers. Chalking that up to self-care. Lol. I read a total of eleven books. ELEVEN. Books. Yes. But to be fair, I read two shorties and one graphic novel: Finding Langston & I’m Afraid of Men, and Fence, Volume 3. So technically, I only read 9 books which, I guess would match my total from a week a go. Still an astronomical number, though.

So today, I thought I’d share what I want to get to this week. I started Serpent & Dove on Friday night. I’m conflicted. While this book started out great, I’m getting a little bored with it as I go along. I wish the plot would move a bit faster. Beartown by Fredrik Bachman is one I started a while ago but I had to put it down for whatever reasons. Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures is a non fiction about three doctors wholly involved in Doctors Without Borders. Basically, they tell theirs stories and experiences about being in the frontline of conflict. Can’t wait to finish all three this week.

Here are the books I read last week:

Fence, Volume 3 by CS Pacat | Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick | The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandi | The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary | Finding Langston by Lesa Cline-Ransome | My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Montfegh | Vox by Christina Dalcher

I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya | Breathless by Beverly Jenkins | Odd One Out by Nic Stone

If I have to pick a favourite, I say it’s a toss up between The Flatshare and My Year of Rest and Relaxation. Let me know if you’re interested in any of the books I read last week.
