Weekly bookish wrap up – 7/7/2019

A post to share all the bookish things I have been up to during the week – the books I’ve read; the books I purchased; the books I’m currently reading and anything else remotely bookish and worth sharing. A simple post to check in with bookish friends and hear about their bookish week.

And just like that another week has flown by.

You may have noticed that I am writing this post on a Sunday instead of my usual Friday night…something that I am toying with becoming a regular thing. Having, this week, gone back to studying, I am already finding it difficult to keep on top of blog posts, bookstagram etc. around my full-time job and all the other family type running around that I do. I am still reading as much as I can but some nights find me asleep, book in hand, on the couch before 9pm.

Still, I did manage to finish 3 books this week; starting another.

Books read:

While You Were Reading by Ali Berg & Michelle Kalus – 4/5 – This is one for booklovers everywhere. Full of bookish references, quotes, bookstagram and coffee; it was such a fun and easy read. I admit to excitedly following all of the bookstagram accounts mentioned at the end of the book – a genius move by the authors – and wishing I could visit some of the wonderful Melbourne bookstores and coffee shops throughout the story. Maybe one day.

Mrs Everything by Jennifer Weiner – 3/5 – A good choice for a buddy read; bound to spark some interesting discussions. I only wish it had lived up to the considerable hype surrounding it. I didn’t not enjoy it but I didn’t love it either, hence the 3 star rating.

The Cactus by Sarah Haywood (Audiobook) – 5/5 #Reese’sBookClub pick for June…finished just a few hours ago. Narrated brilliantly by Katherine Manners; it was quirky, funny, somewhat romantic and full of family drama. A little predictable, but that did not detract from the enjoyment. Highly recommend.

Currently Reading:

Allegra in Three Parts by Suzanne Daniel – Started it this morning and already halfway through…literally did not want to put it down…but had to write this post. Looking like a five star read; one I’m looking forward to finishing tonight.

Books purchased:

Book Ninja by Ali Berg & Michelle Kalus – Purchased because I loved While You Were Reading by the same authors.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – Pre-ordered on my Kindle App before it’s release this week. Heard so many good things about it….can’t wait to read it myself.
