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:

Boo - Neil Smith        Life After Life

 

I’ve had a great reading week so far – Bout of Books has me more focused on spending time with my books! So far I’ve finished two – Boo, which I’ve already reviewed (read it here) and Life After Life, which I was reading in preparation for A God In Ruins. I enjoyed both of these books, though Life After Life was definitely my favourite of the two. I get what all the fuss was about! Full review to come, but for now let me say that while I’m not usually a fan of historical fiction, when I do read it I prefer England in the early- to mid-20th century. This book straddles both, and also manages to take time travel and make it fit without feeling sci fi-ish and without overt inconsistencies. So it ended up being a very enjoyable read, one that I imagine I’ll be thinking about for a while to come!

Currently reading:

We Are All Made of Molecules        A God In Ruins - Kate Atkinson

 

After finishing up with Boo and Life After Life,  I dived directly into these two. So far I’m loving We Are Made of Molecules (I’m not as far into A God In Ruins and I know it’ll take a little longer to feel my way into, but I anticipate loving it as well!). WAAMoM should be a quick read, so I’m hoping to finish it today or tomorrow.

Up next:

The Girl With All the Gifts

 

I’m excited to get into this – I’ll be reading it with the lovely Katie from Bookish Tendencies. You know, once she’s finished having her heart torn out by A Little Life (sorry, Katie!). I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback about this book, so it’s definitely one I’m looking forward to!

In other news:

I just got back from the dentist. No, I don’t want to talk about it. Send chocolate.

On a happier note, I did finally see Age of Ultron, and it’s definitely worth heading to the theatre for! Lots of action and plenty of humour. Just how I like it.

    Several thoughts… 1) I might have to give Life After Life another go – I just could NOT get into it when I tried reading it awhile back, but my tastes have changed a bit, and all this mad praise makes me want to try again. 2) I'm about half way through A Little Life, and some terrible things are happening. To the point where I almost feel physically ill, and find myself clenching all of my muscles while reading. Gah! 3) I'm VERY excited to read TGWATG!!!
