Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next.
Hi, blog friends! I’m feeling good this week. I’m loving reading again after months of it feeling like a chore and I’m really enjoying writing posts. Did you catch yesterday’s Norfolk Festival post? I’d love to go to it but I think it’s a bit far away. I have been looking into Lit festivals in general though so I may well do a few more similar posts and hopefully I’ll get to at least one of them this summer.
Anywayyyy…here’s what my week has looked like:
I’ve only just picked up the new Sáenz book so nothing to report yet, but after Ari & Dante I have high expectations! I also managed two whole pages of my ‘lunch-time read’ The Time Machine on Monday. Baby steps.
Last night I finished Sucktown, Alaska. I liked it, but didn’t love it. It was a mega-quick read, even at over 300 pages, which is nice. Before that I finished Six of Crows and I’m not sure what I thought. I found myself getting lost in places, and I don’t think I truly got into it. But I still couldn’t stop reading it. Hmm.
New on the Shelves
I went on another charity shop raid at the weekend…
This was a great find though…
I’m Waiting On…
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
Because… it sounds quite quirky and I heard really good things about Silvera’s debut More Happy Than Not (but never did get round to it).
So that’s been my week in books, now why don’t you tell me about yours!?
