I always enjoy reading other bloggers’ weekly updates, so I thought I would start sharing mine as well! I will talk about the books that I read during the week and the BookTube videos that I posted, and I will also share some of my favourite blog posts that I came across throughout the week!
I enjoyed the illustrations in this graphic novel and as a lover of Greek myths I am happy to have it on my shelves! That said, something about the actual writing felt a little stilted, but I think it is a great starting point for anyone looking to get into Greek myths or who wants to read retellings but is unfamiliar with the source material!
HarperCollins was kind enough to send me an ARC of The Secret Keep of Jaipur, which is the sequel to The Henna Artist. I have had The Henna Artist on my shelves for years, so I am glad that this pushed me into finally picking it up. I loved the atmosphere and the history, but the pacing was a little off for me. I think I wanted more! However, I did enjoy it overall and it reminded me why I loved historical fiction. I have a feeling the sequel is going to work better for me because I adored Malik, the character who we follow in the second book! Looking forward to it!
Pride and Premeditation was exactly the kind of book that I needed in this moment! It was so fun to read about all of the characters I am so familiar with in Pride and Prejudice. They felt so true to themselves! It makes me want to read more cozy mysteries. I cannot wait for the next book in this series, which is a Sense and Sensibility retelling.

I love this Try a Chapter tag! I am realizing how much you can tell about a book in the first chapter!
I decided to unhaul a few books I had sitting in storage! Why was I keeping them?!
