Reading Recap | What I Read Last Week (May 11 – May 17)

I read a paranormal fantasy novel, a YA dystopian novel, and a women’s fiction last week.

I seem to have less and less time each day to do the things I really want to do! All my time is stolen by cooking, cleaning, and parenting.

The lockdown in my country has been extended till May 31. My neighbours are getting restless and can’t stay indoors any more. We’re on the brink of social unrest.

I took some time off this week from my writing assignments and this blog to just focus on myself. I had begun to develop a pain in my wrist and elbow from excessive use of the laptop.

Now I feel recharged for this week and I can tick off some more tasks from my to-do list–or “do it list” as I read in Jojo’s French Escape by Lorraine Wilson. 🙂

Last Week:

Questions of Perspective by Daniel Maunz

Questions of Perspective is a unique novel. It is philosophy, psychology, existentialism–all rolled into one. It’s supposedly categorized as a paranormal fantasy but I found the story to be so much more.

If you’re on the lookout for different genre or you just want to cleanse your palate, pick up this book.

After Darkness by J.F. Johns

After Darkness cover

It looks like this is my week of reading different genres. This YA dystopian novel was replete with cyborgs, rival X-Prototypes with different powers, and a forbidden love.

Despite the awkward writing, it is an entertaining novel and I’d certainly like to know what happens next.

Jojo’s French Escape by Lorraine Wilson

This is a romance novel with a thoughtful message, relevant to young women everywhere. You’re more than the labels people give you. Joanna Grant, whose sex tape was leaked to the media by a fame-hungry boyfriend, is hiding in the south of France and licking her wounds. It takes a charming, blue-eyed, and sensitive Irish guy to help her out of her shell and get her self-confidence back.

If you’re okay with reading the longish internal dialogues going on in Joanna’s head, you should enjoy this story.
