Hello friends! As I encroach upon my 1-year bloggiversary (coming up in a week or so – keep a look out as there will be a fun giveaway!), I am in the biggest blogging slump I’ve ever had since I started this blog! BOO!!
I blame the behemoth book I’m reading for this slump. It’s taking me too dang long to read it, and as a result I’m feeling like an unproductive blogger. Anyway, enough about my slump. Here’s the bookish line-up for this week.
1. What I just finished reading:
Honor’s Splendour ended up being a DNF at 25%. It’s billed as historical romance novel, and since I love historical fiction with love stories, I thought, THIS IS MY GENRE! False. Either this is completely NOT my genre, or this book wasn’t for me. It felt like a cheap romance with people wearing medieval costumes. Too bad, because I had high hopes.
Meanwhile Matilda was complete perfection of course! I absolutely loved it. AND I listened to the audiobook with Kate Winslet narrating, and that was quite enjoyable.
2. What I’m currently reading:
The Summer Garden is what I’m struggling through right now. Don’t get me wrong, I love these characters, and I love reading the book when I finally sit down and read it… BUT it’s just not pulling me to it, which is not good when it’s 750 pages of tiny font. I have to finish, though, because this is the trilogy finale! The first one in this series was The Bronze Horseman which I claimed (and still agree) was my favorite love story of all time.
I just started the audiobook of Everyone Brave is Forgiven. I haven’t gotten very far, because, well, reading slump.
3. What I’ll be reading next:
A Court of Mist and Fury is going to be my Cancun trip book, and I think it will be perfect! I bet I’ll finish it fast, so then I’m going to move on to one of my ARCs. The List is a middle grade novel that has been out for a while in Europe (called The Wordsmith), but will soon be released in the US!
So what are you reading this week? Anything you’re absolutely loving?
