Happy Sunday bookish buddies 🙂 Another week has come and gone.  Spring has finally come to Ohio and I couldn’t be happier.  We spent the entire weekend OUTSIDE!  It’s crazy to think that this time last weekend there was a few inches of snow on the ground and today it was 80°F.  Needless to say my sinuses are not as happy about the weather change.

Back to bookish business!  The rest of my birthday book haul came this week!!!! Here is what I got…

After seeing so many blogger friends rave about this book, I had to see what the fuss was all about.  I am around 40% through this book.  The writing is exquisite!  I have never read anything by this author, she is very talented.

I am only a few pages into this book, but I have high hopes for it!

I find it very ironic that I was about ready to give up on YA books after my review of The Selection… And here I am reading 2 YA books.  I’m really hopeful these books will help restore my faith in the YA genre.  I think I am trying so hard with this genre because, from what I have seen, most of my fellow bloggers are YA fans… I don’t want to be the odd man out 🙂

Ahhh good ol’ historical fiction.  I have very high standards for this genre, and I wasn’t disappointed!  It isn’t up there with Outlander or the Into the Wilderness Series, but definitely a solid book.  I really enjoyed it 🙂

On Deck…

I will be reading this for my first ever in-person book club!  I’ve heard good things about it, so I am looking forward to it 🙂

How was your week? What is on your bookish agenda for this coming week?

  1. What a busy week! I hope you enjoy The Shadow of the Wind – I think I’m due a reread for that one but I remember tearing through the last few chapters because it got soo good!

    And happy belated birthday!! You got some amazing books 🙂 All the Light We Cannot See is amazing – I’m hoping to start Me Before You soon because of all the hype!

  2. Wow, I haven’t seen that Lie Tree cover before! Is it the US version? It’s so creepy/pretty! I haven’t read it yet but I’m interested to see what you think as it seems to be a kind of love/hate book from what I’ve seen so far. 🙂
