Happy Sunday bookworms!
I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday afternoon. It has been raining all day here in Ohio, actually pretty much all weekend, which has been a nice break from the oppressive heat. It actually worked out well since I scheduled to be home all weekend to work on potty training my toddler. If any of you have children, then you know the hell I’ve been through this weekend. On the plus side, since I’ve been home all weekend, I’ve gotten a lot done on the blog front: finished up some book reviews, started some drafts for few discussion posts, and I even started writing a post for my 6 month blogiversary that is coming up next week! Yay for productivity!
Here is what I had going on this week…
*Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what posts were published on the blog for the past week, any bookish/blog happenings, what I recently finished reading, what I am currently reading, and what I will be reading next.
This week on the blog:
Nothing significant to share this week 🙂
Recently finished reading:
I am going to throw it out there and say this is going to be my favorite read of 2016. McDaniel’s writing is unlike any other author I’ve ever read before. It’s so profound, raw, and beautifully lyrical. I was literally highlighting passages on almost every page. This book isn’t going to be for everyone, there are definitely some hard parts to read, but I think this is a important read. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to read it! Review to come soon.
The Love that Split the World was the next book up on my August 2016 TBR for the BBTB Book Festival. I am about 40% through and am loving the concept of this book so far! I love that the main character is of Native American decent and am really enjoying the Native American legends and folklore included.
I am 50% through Starflight now and am not sure this is going to be my cup of tea. If I am being honest, I’ve thought about giving up on it. I am really struggling with being indifferent to the main characters and the plot hasn’t grabbed my attention thus far. It has gotten a little more interesting with the addition of “space pirates,” but I’ve been pretty bored until this point. I am going to try and stick it out.
The Nightingale is my book club’s selection for August and I couldn’t be more excited to finally read it!
