Currently Reading - 12/1/2018
It's Friday so that mean it's time for another currently reading update! This week I've barely picked up a book and I'm a bit annoyed about that, but I've either been doing schoolwork or I'm so tired that I can't concentrate enough to read. I haven't really made much progress, but I'll show you anyway.
Carry on reading!
POS: Piece Of Sh*t by Pierre Paquet and Jesús Alonso Iglesias
On page 42 of 256
In my last post, I included tis briefly at the bottom because I couldn't seem to find it on Goodreads, but I have now! I haven't gotten very far with this and I stopped reading it because I was getting a bit confused. I think I just need to get a bit further through it and then go from there.
Synopsis: A young man struggles to build a publishing company, find love, and discover who he really is, with his one true trusted companion being the dog who truly seems to understand him. In the end, he realizes that for far too long he has been a self-absorbed piece of sh*t.nA touching autobiographical story by Swiss BD publisher Pierre Paquet, the spiritual sequel to Paquet’s Eisner-nominated A Glance Backward, which recounted his experience dealing with the death of his father at age 11.

Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey
On page 88 of 275
I mentioned I was reading this in my last post, but I haven't got much further. I'm enjoying it and I feel the story is finally starting to get somewhere. It's one of those books that I really have to pay attention to so I struggled to get any further through it this week as I've just been too tired.
Synopsis: In this darkly riveting debut novel—a sophisticated psychological mystery that is also a heartbreakingly honest meditation on memory, identity, and aging—an elderly woman descending into dementia embarks on a desperate quest to find the best friend she believes has disappeared, and her search for the truth will go back decades and have shattering consequences.
Maud, an aging grandmother, is slowly losing her memory—and her grip on everyday life. Yet she refuses to forget her best friend Elizabeth, who she is convinced is missing and in terrible danger.
But no one will listen to Maud—not her frustrated daughter, Helen, not her caretakers, not the police, and especially not Elizabeth's mercurial son, Peter. Armed with handwritten notes she leaves for herself and an overwhelming feeling that Elizabeth needs her help, Maud resolves to discover the truth and save her beloved friend.
This singular obsession forms a cornerstone of Maud's rapidly dissolving present. But the clues she discovers seem only to lead her deeper into her past, to another unsolved disappearance: her sister, Sukey, who vanished shortly after World War II.
As vivid memories of a tragedy that occurred more than fifty years ago come flooding back, Maud discovers new momentum in her search for her friend. Could the mystery of Sukey's disappearance hold the key to finding Elizabeth?
