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.)
Well, I have to admit, I haven’t finished much in the way of books lately. In my defense, I am actively reading three books at the moment…
These three, to be precise. I’m reading The Girl With All the Gifts with Shaina and Katie, and though it was a little slow to get started, it’s now got me staying up way too late because I need to know what happens next! I’m still rationing out my Hornby, partly because reading his thoughts on books is making my TBR grow at a truly alarming rate. And, of course, I’m reading Judy Blume’s newest adult novel, which, true to form, is full of complex characters and emotions.
I’m actually really looking forward to both of these. I’ve been dreaming of France lately, so The Little Paris Bookshop is shaping up to be the perfect summer read. And I’m looking forward to getting to know Colin and George – I’m a huge animal person (and have been assured that this is a happy dog story, because I’m also a big wuss when it comes to anything sad happening to an animal!), so I think this one will be right up my alley.
Recently added to the TBR:
I’ve discovered so many books I want to read recently, but the upcoming releases from Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling), Rainbow Rowell and Jenny Lawson are definitely top of the list! I also discovered Sarah Vowell because she wrote the introduction to Nick Hornby’s collection of articles I’m currently reading and decided I needed to read her work immediately. And This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance sounds like a heartwarming and possibly quirky book which is just the kind of story I love.
That’s it for my couple of weeks – what have you guys been up to? Read anything wonderful lately? Any fantastic books on your TBR? Share in the comments!
