Weekly update

What did I read last week?

I read…(I have such an awful memory. I had to go back and look on my blog to see what I’d read.)

I really enjoyed this novel. It’s contemporary, not a genre I delve into too much. I really recommend it. 5/6

This is the second book in an urban fantasy series. I enjoyed it, although not as much as the first, and can’t wait to read the third. 4/6


What am I reading this week?

I’m taking part in a readathon, a readalong and I’m also part of a monthly book club so I have a lot of planned books to read. Usually, I choose as the mood strikes me.  

I’ll be starting off with, The night circus by Erin Morgernstern. I’ve read the first few pages and I can already see why people gush about this book. 

Then, A game of thrones by George R. R. Martin. This is a book I’ve always wanted to read because the series is so popular and just seems really amazing, but I kept putting it off. Not gonna lie, kinda intimidated. Not only is it over 800 pages long, but it seems like it’s going to be very complex. 

I’m also hankering to read The fireman by Joe Hill, but it’s unlikely I’ll fit that in this week. It’ll probably be next week. (Did I tell you that I won one the Camp Wyndham t-shirts? BECAUSE I DID!!)


In other news, I’m considering trying out audio books. I haven’t really given them a fair go. I’ve always loved holding a book in my hands and reading with my eyeballs. But, I’ve been doing a lot of crocheting which means my hands aren’t free so…yeah. 

I’m not sure whether to start with a re-read or just dive straight in the deep end with a new read, maybe A game of thrones? What do you think?

Have a great week!

Jen!

      I’m glad too. Everyone I’ve mentioned it too is either excited I’m reading it or horrified I haven’t read it yet. :’D
