I debated about even writing this post because I’ve been in the WORST reading slump since I started blogging! As someone who reads for relaxation and fun, it’s disheartening to not have a book to look forward to at the end of the day…I”m sure so many of you know the feeling. Needless to say, my Fall TBR has let me down significantly as just about everything I was looking forward to has flopped for me. Some of the titles I’ve tried and put into my DNF (did not finish) pile include: Manhattan Beach By Jennifer Egan, Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak, Start Without Me by Joshua Feldman, and The Best Kind of People by Zoe Whittall. One that started off strong for me, then quickly lost steam ( I just don’t love flashbacks) resulting in me super skim reading to find out how it ended was Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughn. I’m confident I’ll get back on track soon whether it’s with one of my 2018 reads ( read on to find out which one) or something from my backlist…I know my next great read is around the corner:) In the meantime, I’m working on a couple non-review posts I hope you’ll enjoy and I’ve finally gotten around to watching the first episode of This Is Us from season 1!! I’m so late to this show but I can see why everyone loves it.
This beauty dropped onto my front porch late Saturday afternoon and I can’t tell you how excited I was to get it! I absolutely loved and still regularly recommend The Last Child which I read several years ago and this is the much anticipated sequel. I’ve only read a few pages so far but I’m really liking it and the vibe is not at all what I expected. I’ll hold off on a full review until pub date (Feb 27th, 2018) but I’ll be sure to give you a sneak peak with my thoughts when I’ve finished.
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO…
I couldn’t ignore all the glowing reviews of this one any longer and I also couldn’t wait any longer for my library hold to come in so off to Audible I went. I just started listening but I’m super intrigued, especially since this is set about 90 min from where I live. The narrator is fantastic and I’m already looking forward to my next long drive and walk.
UPCOMING READING POSSIBILITIES….
The fact that Lisa Gardner blurbed The Dark Lake and it’s one of The Book of the Month’s selections this month has me very interested. Sweet Little Lies is my treat to myself for my one year blogiversary and it arrived on Saturday!
What are you looking forward to reading this week? Hope you all have a wonderful week of reading!
