Another month, another wrap up (a late one).
I started off the month by reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. This was the book club pick for this month and, I have to say, I was positively surprised! This book is considered a classic so, that alone, made me hesitate to pick it up. On top of that, I didn’t have a clue about the story so I didn’t really expect much. Well, I ended up loving it. It is about the life of Jane Eyre, an orphan child struggling to find a purpose, who grows into a strong woman to inspire us all. Because this was the book club pick of the month, I’ve already posted my review of it so, if you want to know more of my thoughts on the book, check my review here.
Then, I finished reading the third season of Bookburners. This is a series that I keep talking about. It is about a group of people working for the Vatican fighting the supernatural. I finally finished the latest season, and, I have to say, it didn’t disappoint. Even after two seasons, there was still character development and the story was still gripping. I recommend the series and can’t wait for the next season that’ll come out this June!
After that, I read Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom by Terry Blas, Molly Muldoon, and Matthew Seely. When one of the camp counselors is murdered, a group of teenagers has to investigate and discover the murderer. The art was visually pleasing and the story was intriguing. I couldn’t stop reading it so I ended up reading everything in one sitting. If you want a fun, light mystery thriller, check out this one.
Next, I read Mortal Fear by Robin Cook. Basically, people are mysteriously dying and Jason has to discover why. I was disappointed with the ending, it was very similar to the ending of another of Cook’s books. I talk more about it in my review so keep an eye out for that. I still recommend Cook’s books, just maybe not this one.
After that, I finished Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice to All Creation by Olivia Judson. In this book, numerous animals send letters to Dr Tatiana asking about their love life and she answers them by explaining their behaviour and the reasons behind its evolution. I really liked the way it was written, it was refreshing and everything was explained with great detail. I recommend the book to anyone interested in evolutionary biology or biology in general. If you have any science book recommendations, please write them in the comments below!
Finally, I read Little Moments of Love by Catana Chetwynd. This is a graphic novel that compiles a series of small strips about the daily life of a couple. I had already read some of the strips online but it was nice to have them all together in a graphic novel, along with new ones that I’d never read before. It was a really fun book and, if you’re not familiar with Catana’s works, you can always check out her social media, she posts some of the strips there.
