I can’t even begin to tell you how good it feels to be back!!!! This week was great! I spent a lot of time with my 13 year old daughter, we had some warm weather, we got our pool liner replaced, I hauled a ton of books AND I read a ton of books! As you know, for any bookworm, a reading slump makes you feel like absolute garbage! You want to read so badly but….. you just can’t! I’m happy to report that THE SLUMP IS OVER!!!! I actually managed to read TWO books this week and almost finished a third!! And I loved them all! So let’s see what I read!
BOOKS I FINISHED THIS WEEK:
The first book I read this week was BIRTHDAY by Meredith Russo (click for full review) which I was a part of the blog tour for the publisher! I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t like it after reading the first chapter. But it ended up being an emotionally packed enjoyable read! I really liked this one!
The next book I read was THE HAUNTED by Danielle Vega (Click for full review) and I LOVED this one!!! For some reason I’m hesitant when it comes to YA horror. I feel like it’s just not scary enough – especially when it comes to hauntings and paranormal. But this one absolutely hit the mark! This one gave me goosebumps and…….. THAT ENDING! This one publishes on June 4th 🙂
BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING:
I am less than 100 pages from finishing Red, White & Royal Blue and loving it! I didn’t even read the synopsis before picking this up so the whole thing was a huge surprise! I didn’t know that this was the book I needed in my life! I think that after I finish this one, I’m going to pick up When We Were Lost by Kevin Wignall. This one has to do with a plane crash, survival, and murder…. sounds like just the thing I’m in the mood for!
OTHER BOOKISH NEWS:
TOP 5 TUESDAY:
This weeks topic (Top 5 “Unputdownable Reads”) was so much fun! I loved reading everyone’s answers! And I also loved that my Tuesday wasn’t as chaotic as it normally is and I actually got to comment on posts!!! Tomorrow will be the release of the topics for June…. I can’t believe we are almost in June!!! Check back tomorrow afternoon to see what we will be talking about!
BIG BOOK HAUL COMING!
Like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I hauled a lot of books. I mean, A LOT! I think that buying and researching books is the main reason why my slump took a hike. It seemed to have sparked my interest in a whole bunch of different genres and a lot of really interesting sounding stories! Too many books, too little time! My book haul will be posted this week!
I’m keeping this post a little short today. Despite this being a much better week (in terms of reading and my personal life/anxiety), my life is still insanely busy. Keeping up with comments and conversations is still a struggle. Especially with my daughter’s grade 8 graduation, things are a bit chaotic here. But when my head is in a better place, all of these things are just a little bit easier. I’ve even been posting on twitter and Instagram more! I’m slowly coming back and DAMN it feels good!!
Until next time, happy reading!
