Week In Review

July 14 – 20

Wow I can’t believe we’re already near the end of July! I know time flies, but that somehow seems particularly true this summer. I’ve only just changed my header for the summer!

I’ve spent a lot of time this week playing Minecraft on the PS3. I suspect I’m not very ‘good’ at the game, but I have a lot of fun, which is what really matters. I’ve also been getting a lot of reading done, so yay me!

I acquired a bunch of books this week, both borrowed and purchased:

Ashes to Ashes (ARC) by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian (which I’ve already finished reading!)

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman (I have another of his novels, You, which my husband is reading now and I am really looking forward to reading)

The Circle by Dave Eggers

The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes (I have an ARC of her next book, Broken Monsters, from BEA and they both sound awesome)

Galveston by Nic Pizzolatto

I finished reading three books this week: Ashes to Ashes; Pretty Little Liars: Toxic by Sara Shepard; and Bird Box by Josh Malerman. Now to write those reviews…

I’ve also been a bit of a DNF machine lately! I DNF’d The Mirk and Midnight Hour this week. I got about halfway through but didn’t feel compelled to read further or find out what happened next, and I really wanted to start reading something else.

Currently I’m reading Divided by Elsie Chapman, sequel to Dualed. Since I usually have two books on the go, I’m trying to decide what to start reading next. I’m torn between Broken Monsters and Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler. I can’t figure out what I’m in the mood for!

On the blog, I posted my ARC reviews of Dollhouse by Anya Allyn and Landline by Rainbow Rowell, as well as my Top Ten Tuesday post on my favourite television shows and movies.

Coming up are my reviews of Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater, and The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey (spoiler: I loved both!).

I’m off to have coffee and keep reading. Happy Sunday!
