So after not finishing any books last week I was hoping that I would at least finish 1 book and I ended up finishing 2. So y’all know that I was in a little bit of a reading funk after finishing Simon so it took me a lot longer to Finish Father Figure than it should have. I finally just had to force myself to sit down and read no matter what and it helped me out of that funk. I already knew I was going to love Father Figure because it is the book I beta read back in January I was just reading a finished copy of it after it came out earlier this month. I will be posting a full review of this book soon.
A few days ago I was reading one of Noriko’s posts and she mentioned she was subscribed to Scribd which I didn’t know anything about. I messaged her on Twitter asking her a few questions about it because I was really interested in listening to audiobooks. I decided to sign up for the one month free trial and just to get used to how things work I picked an audiobook of a book I have already read which was Wonder. While I still love the story I wasn’t fond of one of the narrators. I’m not going to be posting a review because I reviewed the book not to long ago. So thank you so much Noriko for mentioning it and thank you to The Clever Reader for mentioning it to her because even though I’ve only listened to 1 audiobook so far I am seriously considering keeping it.
After I mentioned The Book Thief in my post Most Popular Books On My TBR I had several people telling me I should read it as soon as possible. I always knew that it was a well loved book but I just never picked it up. After everyone telling me to read it I decided to check and see if my library had it and they did so I decided to go ahead and pick it up. I’m not all that far into it at the moment but I will say that in the 55 pages that I have read it has already started pulling at my heartstrings.
I hadn’t planned on Starting Heir of Ashes but Saturday I went with my husband to the gym and I was planning on listening to my audiobook but of course there was no wifi and I didn’t want to use my data on my phone so I decided to read an ebook instead and I chose Heir of Ashes. I’ve been meaning to get to it for a while now so it all worked out. I’m only 10% into it but so far so good.
Last up is Cinder. While I haven’t actually started reading this one yet I will be reading the first 5 chapters today. This is mine and Payton’s buddy read for the month. Our plan is to read 5 chapters a day that way we will be finished with it by the end of the month.
Honestly I’m not really sure what I am going to read next. I know what my TBR is for next month but I don’t want to talk about those yet. Although I was going through Scribd and I saw that the audiobook for Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda is on there and I am seriously considering listening to it so that might be what I pick up next.
Credit as always to The Book Date. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What have you been reading lately?
