What I’m Reading This Long Memorial Day Weekend!

For those of you in America, Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Most of us use this day to sleep in and do nothing for an additional 24 hours, but some folk do what they’re supposed to do and actually celebrate those who have served in the military. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to reading-wise.

What I just finished reading:

 aftercare instructions bonnie pipkin

I just finished (and LOVED!) the audiobook of Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (an adult fantasy novel about an assassins school), and the ARC of Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Pipkin. Click the links to be taken to their synopses! Reviews coming in the next few weeks.

What I’m reading now:

the magicians lev grossman love and gravity by samantha sotto

I’m reading Love and Gravity by Samantha Sotto, and listening to the audiobook of The Magicians by Lev Grossman.

What I’m reading next:

little women louisa may alcott carnivalesque neil jordan

I’ll probably finish my audiobook of Little Women (DEAR GOD I hope it gets better! I’m about a third of the way through and right now I’m struggling). I had to put it on pause because audiobooks kept automatically getting checked out to me from the library, so I had to rush to listen to those before they were automatically returned. I’m not 100% sure which physical book I’ll read next, but I might pick up Carnivalesque by Neil Jordan.


Now it’s your turn to answer all or some of the questions!

    1. I did not mean to post that already, lol.
      Why do your audiobooks get checked out automatically?
      I’m buddy reading Assassin’s Fate and reading One by One in between. I’m also listening to a thriller in German and The Emperor’s Blames.

      1. I check out audiobooks online through my library, so if there’s one I’m wait-listed for, as soon as it becomes available it will automatically be checked out to me. It’s nice… but when I’m in the middle of another audiobook, sometimes it becomes problematic!
        A thriller in German sounds extra intense XD!!

        1. Do you use Overdrive? You can change that setting! I also find the ‘suspend hold’ feature helpful.

          That’s mostly what I listen to these days, because I buddy listen with my boyfriend. Sometimes it works really well, sometimes I have no idea what’s going on. 😂

          Lol, I listen to my audiobooks sped up, which means I often get ahead of my boyfriend and need something else in between. My second book always takes forever to get through, though.

          1. I do use Overdrive!! I will investigate the settings and see what I can change! I like listening to some of my audiobooks sped up, too. They talk so slow sometimes!

  1. I’m reading The Winner’s Curse at the moment. Then I have a manga/graphic novel readathon tomorrow.

    I have a copy of The Magicians and I got about 3 chapters in. I was loving it but I decided to put it down until I get ahold of the rest of the trilogy. 🙂

    1. I’ve heard good things about The Winner’s Trilogy series, but I haven’t read it yet! Honestly, I hate the covers so I’m a bit cover prejudiced XD LOL, I love the reason you stopped The Magicians – you’ll have to pick it up again soon!

      1. Haha I know what you mean about the covers. Even with the change (and then they changed it back), it’s still ugly lol.

        I shall! I really did enjoy what little I read of The Magicians so I will be picking it up again eventually.

    1. I am enjoying it quite a bit! I’m listening to the audiobook, and it’s fun! I think I’ll watch the show when I’m finished. My husband has read it and seen the show and he said that the book is better (no surprise there!).

    1. Hahaha, I think I’m going to watch the show once I’m done reading it. My husband has read it and seen the show, and he said the book is better, though, so we’ll see if I stick with the show once I start it…
