Recently shelved as read:
Brie @ A Slice of Brie read The Nightingale a few months, and raved about how incredible the book was, but how it left her a sobbing mess at the end. I had had this one on my TBR for quite a while, and decided that now was the time to pick it up. You guys, I was crying during the FIRST CHAPTER. This book was incredible from cover to cover and it absolute tore my heart out. If you haven't picked this one up and you love a good WWII story, or a story about two sisters who couldn't be more different, then please pick this up.
I also finished Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince on my drive home from work today. I'm not sure that my heart is ready to jump into the final book, but I'm determined to finish my re-read of the series this year.
On my nightstand:
I'm slowly savouring Crooked Kingdom. I chose this book for Tome Topple, and I'm not sure if I'll finish it by Friday, but we'll see. It's been excellent so far, but my evenings have consisted of online furniture shopping and house-related discussions with hubby, with little reading. Hopefully, I'll find the time to finish this one soon.
I went to this open house BBQ thing for work over the summer, and met a nice lady who was chatting about books with me. She told me how she'd just listened to her first audio book, and what she had thought of it, and then gave me the audiobook because she didn't plan to reread it. I've been meaning to pick this up for a few months now, and thought I'd give it a listen between Harry Potter books while I let my heart recover a little from the ending.
