Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 184

DSC00755


Good Morning.

At some point, I will feel guilty for my weekly bookstore jaunts. Today is not that day, however.

Last week was another great week for reading. But in the spirit of honesty, I’ve only managed to finish books that are on my Kindle or in my Audible library. Which is really making me feel awful about the physical copies I’ve been hoarding in the last few weeks. I have to rethink about my reading habits and what I can do to alleviate the space issue in my house. I’ll get back to you on that.

After I Do | Forever Interrupted | Maybe in Another Life | One True Loves

I know many of you are fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid. After a number of bloggers have sworn fealty to Ms. Reid, I knew it was only a matter of time. But it was the concerted effort of Nick and Nereyda that ultimately had me ordering all her books from Amazon. Though, in their defense, they didn’t have to work so hard to convince me.

Summer Skin by Kirsty Eagar | This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab

After the overwhelming 5-star reviews for Summer Skin by Aussies and bloggers from other countries, I stopped resisting and ordered a copy through Book Depository. It took a while, but at least I didn’t have to pay a ridiculous amount for shipping and duties. Really excited to read this book! I also ordered This Savage Song from there. The North American release of this book is not until July so it gives me pleasure to read it ahead of time.

Smoke by Dan Vyleta | The Fireman by Joe Hill | The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker | I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid | The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

And the rest of the books on this pile.

Last night, I started reading an old Joe Hill novel. The opening scene was seriously messed up that I didn’t manage to continue. I think you’re meant to read it in broad daylight. Lorna of Rabid Reads has recommended The Nightingale to me a couple of times already, but I keep forgetting it on my book order. So I finally picked it up. She said it’s a good historical fiction set in war and since I’m a huge fan, I knew I must have it.

I have another full week of blog posts again. I wrote like a mad woman on Saturday, so I managed to write a few reviews. I feel like I should break up the week with something other than a book review because I don’t want you guys to get bored. I’ll try to come up with something. I hope you’ll have a great week!
