Last week wasn’t the best reading week, again. I was feeling under the weather and just in case I self isolated. It was a very anxious week, not helped by all the news reports, which I switched off by Thursday and tried to manage my news intake. I’m feeling fine now, luckily.
I did get some reading done. I read V.E. Schwab’s A Gathering of Shadows, the second book in the Shades of Magic trilogy. I enjoyed it very much, a bit more than the first in the series. I also started Lincoln Child’s Utopia, a thriller set in a state of the art theme park. Despite it being written in 2002 it doesn’t feel as dated as I expected. It also reads quickly, which Child’s book usually do for me.
I think I’ll be reading easy reads for a while. My reading challenge is on hold for now. Anything I read is great. It’s an anxious time for me, which means I can read a lot more than normal or stop reading at all, or anything in between. Animal Crossing New Horizons also came out last Friday, which is a great game but takes up some time to keep up you island.
My only reading goal for now is to have fun.
