What I’m Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme to update you, my readers, on what I’m currently reading, what I’ve read and what reading I have on the horizon (and of course to get more suggestions for books to add to your ever-growing TBR list). Feel free to join in and check out what everyone else.

Last week was a pretty slow reading week. I got a couple pieces of not-so-good news and having said that I really wasn’t much in a reading mood. After Bout of Books (BoB) was over I decided to continue with the rather ambitious list of books I had for the challenge.

Currently Reading

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson was not on my BoB reading list. It is however on my classic horror reading challenge list. I was finally able to get my pretty little hands on a copy at the library. Continue reading

What’s On the Horizon?

Hi all,

There are a couple of things I’ve wanted to do on this blog and I’m going to give them a shot.  So what are they? 1) A Giveaway and 2) Christmas in July

Recently, I catalogued my books and discovered I had a few duplicates. At first I was going to give them, but then thought why not do a giveaway. So, here we are.

The first book up is the Dover Thrift Edition of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. When I moved here I thought I lost a box of books and was sad angry that the movers lost my box, which contained Jane Eyre and others; so I went out and bought another copy. However, on a trip home I discovered that so-called ‘lost’ box of books in my parents garage. Continue reading

Can’t Wait Wednesday

I found this weekly meme a few days ago when I decided to revamp my website (tell me what you think). It’s called: ‘Can’t Wait Wednesday’ and is hosted by Wishful Endings. The general premise is to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released as well.

I can’t wait for Kevin Kwan’s Rich People Problems. It’s the third installment of the Crazy Rich Asians series. I’m expecting it to be just as cynically funny as its predecessors (Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend). I found out this was coming out earlier in the year Continue reading

Final Bout of Books 19 Update – May 8-14

Hooray!🎉 I mean Awww 😔Bout of Books 19 is over. This was my first time participating and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, connected with some really cool bloggers and got more reading suggestions.

I didn’t get all the books read, but some are better than none, right? And it’s so satisfying to get a few of the books on my TBR list read.

Bout of Books 19 Update – May 8-10

As of Wednesday, we’re 43% of the way through with Bout of Books 19 and I must admit I’m having more fun than I thought I would. And it’s so satisfying to get a few of the books on my TBR list read.

I came out of the gate a little slow and I’m pretty sure that I will not be able to read all the books I planned, but my reading energy has been renewed and I think I can keep the momentum going.  Continue reading
