What I read last week
Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land
This is a psychological thriller about a girl whose mother is a serial killer. She tells the police about it and now has to face her mother in court.
We follow her as she takes on a new identity and tries to start a new life in a foster family.
It’s a very good book, I’ll be writing a review for it very soon. I’ve already written one in my Portuguese blog if anyone’s interested 😋
What I’m currently reading
Strange Medicine by Mike Russell
A collection of strange stories – and when they say strange, they’re not kidding!
I’ve read 2 out of the 8 stories and, although they are indeed very strange and bizarre, I’m enjoying it.
This was kindly sent to me by the author himself, so thank you very much for that ☺️
The Aeneid by Virgil
I’m reading this for the second time, now for my Roman Culture class.
In case you aren’t familiar with it, the Aeneid tells us the story of Aeneas, who is given a mission by the gods to be the founder of Rome.
Essentially, it portrays Rome as the best and most important empire, and the Romans as the best “race” there is and ever was. It’s sort of used as a way to tell the story of the origins of Rome, which led to ‘now’ (1st century BC), the huge Roman empire, and it also talks about the future.
What I’ll be reading next
I really want to get to The Cruel Prince by Holly Black soon, since everyone’s been raving about it.
I’m convinced that I’m going to love it, since it has faeries and, from the looks of it, a very handsome prince 😉
