My Week on Wednesday

 

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.)

Just shelved:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22716397-nothing-like-love?ac=1   Citizen - Claudia Rankine   https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20335765-dept-of-speculation

 

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!

Currently reading:

On the Move - Oliver Sacks   https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22609396-the-children-s-crusade?ac=1

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.

Up next:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16280081-the-unlikely-hero-of-room-13b?ac=1    Life After Life

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:

Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon

 

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!

    I haven't gotten very far with it yet – I have two books I need to finish first – but what I've read so far I like, and I think I liked the other book I read of hers years ago too. I've got high hopes! I'll let you know once I'm further into it!

    I love Cait. And she loves this book. Therefore… I'm sure I'm going to love it! I've had to temporarily set it aside for now, because I've got some review copies I need to get through, but I'm really looking forward to it! I am surprised by how many people didn't know there was a sequel in the works, which makes me even more excited to read Life After Life and A God In Ruins and share my thoughts!

    I'm super interested to hear what you think of Life After Life. I tried reading that over a year ago now, and actually DNFed it, which I hardly ever do. People have raved about this, and I just couldn't get into it. If you give it a glowing review, I may have to give it another shot…..

    Firstly, I am going to start listening to The Unlikely Hero this week (mainly because of Cait's review) as well! Secondly, there's a SEQUEL to Life After Life. I need to investigate this.
