Just One Reader's Opinion!

Week In Review

October 28 – November 3

Happy daylight saving! Rather than get an extra hour of sleep, I stayed up to finish a book. I’m tired but I feel like it was a good choice.

I’m also going to see a movie today and I’m super excited! I do not normally like to leave my house, especially on weekends (I’m an introverted hermit), but I’m going to see Parasite with some friends and I am mega excited! (Click here for a link to the trailer if you can’t see it embedded below)

In reading news, I hit my Goodreads goal of 100 books for the year! This is the earliest I’ve reached that goal in a few years I think, and I’m curious now to see how many books I’ll finish before December 31. So far I’m at 103.

And even though Halloween is over, I’m still in a spooky season kind of mood, so I’ve been reading creepy stuff and watching a lot of Buzzfeed Unsolved Supernatural and scary movies!

New books:

I received an e-ARC of Eric Smith’s Don’t Read the Comments via Edelweiss this week.

I also borrowed a bunch of library books again:

The Beautiful, Renee Ahdieh;

The Flatshare, Beth O’Leary (I keep hearing such good things about this one!);

Fake It Till You Break It, Jenn P. Nguyen;

Pet, Akwaeke Emezi; and

The Infinite Blacktop, Sara Gran.

And I bought two spooky books for my Kobo:

The Shining, Stephen King (I’ve never read his books! But I feel like this one might be a good one to start with); and

Come Closer, Sara Gran (I borrowed a copy from the library recently and liked it so much that I had to have my own copy! And it was only $2.99, which was too good a deal to pass up).

Books read:

I read five books this week:

Come Closer, Sara Gran;

The Liars of Mariposa Island, Jennifer Mathieu;

Heart of Ash, Kim Liggett;

Gideon the Ninth, Tamsyn Muir (THIS WAS SO GOOD!); and

The Bone Houses, Emily Lloyd-Jones.

Current reads:

I’m still kind of reading Colleen Hoover’s It Ends With Us (although I’ve barely picked it up this week), and I’m about halfway through Kelly Armstrong’s Watcher in the Woods.


I posted three reviews this week:

Ninth House, Leigh Bardugo;

Hex, Thomas Olde Heuvelt; and

Betrayal in Time, Julie McElwain.

Time for some more books and coffee before I go to the movies! Happy Sunday!
