I blogged in January about some books I planned to read and movies I planned to watch in 2020. I’ve updated my progress a couple of times, and figured I was due for another update now that we’re nearly halfway through the year.
I didn’t actually read any of my book picks for this challenge in April. I read one in May and one this month, but I’ll read another pick this month to catch up.
In May I read (and loved) My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante. You can read my review here.
And this month I’ve already read Last Rituals by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir. Sadly, I didn’t love this one, so hopefully the next book I pick from my list will be more enjoyable.
As for movies, I got ahead of myself back in April and watched two (and haven’t watched any movies from my list since):
I watched The Bar, which I didn’t care for, and I Remember You, adapted from another Yrsa Sigurðardóttir novel that I had enjoyed. The movie adaptation was decent, but neither of these movies was a hit with me.
I don’t know what I’ll be reading or watching next from my list, but I’m looking forward to choosing!
