Happy Sunday bookish buddies! Hopefully everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mother Nature has been cruel to Ohio once again by supplying us with an unseasonably cold weekend. Like 20-30 degrees colder than what is average for May. I’m over it to say the least. I’ve started packing WINTER clothes for our SUMMER vacation to Wyoming in a week. Forecast is calling for highs in the 60s with lows in the 30s. Seriously? Why me…
ANYWAYS! I had something exciting happen with my blog this week…
I was so honored that Em featured my humble little blog on her podcast. I encourage everyone to check out her blog and podcast! If you are interested in listening to the episode that my blog was featured in, it is the most recent episode titled “Crowns and Knights.” Stay tuned for this week’s episode!
I’m also excited to announce that I have been working on some more original/creative posts this week. These will be more like “chats” on topics book related. I’ve been wanting to spice up my blog by adding content that isn’t the same old tags, memes, and book reviews. I was going to post one this week, but as luck would have it, I saw a fellow blogger post something similar to what I had been working on. I was bummed, but decided to hold off on that particular post and focus on others for now.
Here is what else I had going on this week…
This week on the blog:
I am around 50% through The Alchemist and loving every minute! I am listening to it via audiobook and WOW!!! Audiobook is the way to go with this one. It is narrated by Jeremy Irons, who you may know as the voice of “Scar” in Disney’s The Lion King. His voice is perfection.
I am about 35% through this book, and I can’t decide how I feel about it yet. We shall see how this pans out.
I’m going to give this one 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed the last 25% of this book, but the first 75% fell a little flat for me. Review to come soon!
After reading so many historical fictions, I need to mix it up a little bit. I will be listening to this via audiobook.
How was your week? What are you currently reading? What will you read next?
Have a great week and happy reading 🙂
