I used to participate in WWW, but I don't think it's even running anymore, so I thought I'd run with my own version of this meme. I recently posted about my struggle to write reviews and, ever since then, I haven't posted a single review! It's been liberating but I do miss sharing an update on what I'm reading, as well as what I think about those books. So, I came up with this idea to marry my old WWW posts with mini-reviews. My goal is to post these bi-weekly, so that you, my dear readers, will have a somewhat regular update on what I've been reading!
On My Nightstand:
I've been struggling through Nabokov's Lolita for the past week as it's a book club pick for our meeting tonight. It's so icky and disturbing that I keep finding excuses to do anything besides read. Consequently, my house is really clean! I finally decided to just read the last few chapters and call it a day. On audio, I just started Garth Stein's The Art of Racing in the Rain and I'm really liking it so far! It's told from the perspective of a dog, which is so refreshing and different, but also poignant and philosophical.
Shelved as Read:
It took me a few weeks, but I finally finished Heir of Fire! It had some slow parts, but I also wanted to take my time with the story, since I know I have to wait until the fall for more Celeana. After that, I blasted through two contemporary review books, 99 Days and Things We Know By Heart, and I loved them both! I'll have full reviews for both of those books up on the blog next month.
Next Up Off the TBR Pile:
I'm going to try Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo, and I'm really hoping that I like it! Lauren @ Lose Time Reading has already read it and, if I catch up and want to continue with the series, we're going to read it together.
What are YOU reading this week? Please leave me a comment below!
