My Week On Wednesday is a weekly link-up post in which I share with you what I’ve been reading, what I’m reading next, and any other bookish stuff I enjoyed in the past week! (Click on book images to view Goodreads page.)
All three of these were excellent, but they were all very different. Both from one another and from anything else I’ve read. I actually finished all three of these on Saturday for Readathon, which isn’t as many as I’d hoped, but not bad!
I’m about halfway through both of these and hoping to finish them up this week. On the Move (out today) is a creative memoir by Oliver Sacks, a writer and doctor whose life is as interesting as his work. The Children’s Crusade is family epic, very much character-driven and highlighting the complexities of family relations.
I’ve started both of these and am very eager to dive back into them once I’ve finished my current reads! Cait over at Paper Fury is a huge fan of The Unlikely Hero, so obviously I need to read it ASAP. And the sequel to Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life is out next week (!) so I’m trying to finish this up in time to read A God In Ruins as soon as I can get my hands on it!
In other news:
I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon on Saturday, and while I had some issues focusing and had to pause to watch the hockey game (my beloved Canucks sadly got knocked out of the playoffs), I still managed to finish three books and spend about 8 hours reading. AND not only that, but I won a prize! I rarely win anything, so you can imagine how thrilled I am! You can check out my Readathon post to see how I did here.
What about you guys? Did you participate in Readathon? How much reading did you get done? How was the rest of your week? Link up or share in the comments!
