Weekly bookish wrap up – 8/3/2020

Happy Sunday beautiful, bookish people!!!

How has your week been?

I’ve been slumped over this blog post, thinking I’d had a shocking reading week again…and I kinda have…but then it occured to me that I’d actually finished 3 books…THREE!!!!!….After zilch last week…that’s pretty impressive even if I do say so myself; given everything else that’s happened this week (reorganising my entire blog; spending way too many hours Pinteresting; being exhausted and feeling flat).

Books read:

  • The Lonely Fajita by Abigail Mann (eARC) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane (Audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo (Audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Each of these books were definitely 4 ⭐ reads and ones that I would hightly recommend….but if I had to choose a favourite, it would be the audio version of With The Fire On High. I just love when a book is narrated by it’s author; it gives it a little ‘something, something’.

Don’t you think?

Currently reading:

  • Don’t Overthink It by Anne Bogel (Audiobook)
  • The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray
  • The Switch by Beth O’Leary (eARC)

Goodreads Reading Challenge: 18/75

I am loving watching this number grow week by week. How about you – how is your reading challenge going?

Do you even do the Goodreads Reading Challenge?

I know that not every body counts their reads or sets a reading goal but I love having something to strive for.

What are your thoughts?

Let’s chat!!

  1. Personally I don’t like setting a reading challenge. I found it used to stress me out too much and made me choose shorter books rather than books I was genuinely interested in just so I would read this arbitrary number of books. So I did away with setting my challenge about three years ago. Maybe four? Gosh the years blur into each other lol! But what I do now is set it to one and just go from there. It’s interesting to see the number at the end of the year but it doesn’t consume my fav hobby like it used to before :)))
    Glad to see four stars for the lonely fajita btw! Such a charming read that is :)))

    1. I totally get that…no need to ruin your favourite pasttime with anxiety and undue pressure. I don’t feel that way yet but I’m sure if I ever do I’ll stop participating in the challenge. At the moment, it’s fantastic to even be reading books I enjoy after years of only reading textbooks. 🙂
