There are times I wish it were forbidden to adapt a story before it's finished. That an author should be allowed to complete their story in peace before other writers begin to change it to fit a new medium.
I really enjoyed my 2019 in books. Most of the books I've read this year have been good. Some were average. Many were fantastic.
The next show on my list is, Killing Eve. The anticipated second season premiered on April 7th. I had hoped to have this post up by then; unfortunately, my sometimes temperamental back objected to that idea. So, we're now two (almost three) episodes into the new season, and so far it's looking good!
One thing I really enjoy about the writing is that, because of the very different personalities and lives these two women lead, it never feels repetitive. For example, a part of the book takes place in Venice, you have chapters from Villanelle's POV, and then you have Eve retracing her steps, and yet it feels new.
As you might (or might not) know, I signed up for the Goodreads reading challenge at the beginning of the year, pledging to read thirty-six books. You can read more about that in THIS post. We’re now in June, at the six-month mark, and I’ve so far read twenty-two books. Considering I’ve also been a full-time student and thus have read thousands of pages of exciting titles like Empires in world history: power and the politics of difference, or Agriculture in world history, I feel quite happy. Those twenty-two books are ones I’ve read after finishing all that required reading. Thank god for audio books.
