Just One Reader's Opinion!

Week In Review

January 18 - 24

My 2021 reading is off to an excellent start! I’ve been able to focus on my books and have finally started reading / listening to audiobooks! For so long, I couldn’t focus on audiobooks and didn’t really process information as well without being able to see the words, but I have listened to a few audiobooks lately via a Scribd free trial and I think I am going to stick with it.

My blog also got a little makeover, and I am having a lot of fun behind the scenes working with the updates!

New books:

I had so many giftcards to spend on books from Christmas, and I held on to them for a few weeks until I was sure that I knew what I wanted to get with them! 

I purchased:

These Violent Delights, Chloe Gong;

Wench, Maxine Kaplan;

The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry, C.M. Waggoner; 

The Raven Tower, Ann Leckie; and

Woman World, Aminder Dhaliwal.

I also received two e-ARCs from Simon & Schuster Canada:

Books read:

I have finished 20 books so far this year, 7 of them this past week:

Stillhouse Lake, Rachel Caine;

Those Who Prey, Jennifer Moffett;

Lumberjanes #41 and #42 by Shannon Watters et al;

The Cold Is In Her Bones, Peternelle van Arsdale;

The Ravens, Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige; and

Light For the World to See: A Thousand Words on Race and Hope, Kwame Alexander. 

Current reads:

I am a little over halfway through Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth for one of my book clubs, and I have started reading Lindy West’s Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman, which I am aiming to finish today.

Posts and reviews:

I’ve been busy with the blog this year! 

I’ve posted my December Quick Lit and my 2020 End of Year Survey.

I also shared a Top Ten Tuesday post and a Waiting on Wednesday post.

I’ve also posted 7 reviews:

One of the Good Ones, Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite;

The Push, Ashley Audrain;

The Cousins, Karen M. McManus;

Admission, Julie Buxbaum;

The Wife Upstairs, Rachel Hawkins;

Kind of a Big Deal, Shannon Hale; and

Tiny Nightmares: Very Short Stories of Horror, Lincoln Michel and Nadxieli Nieto (Eds.).

I’m planning to spend the rest of my day curled up in my reading chair with my books and some coffee. 

Happy Sunday!
