I only finished 1 book this week and that was Joyland by Stephen King. This was this months pick for the Stephen King read-a-long over on Instagram. Overall I really enjoyed this book. I actually got teary eyed a few times while reading it which was a surprise. I was a little bit underwhelmed by it but that’s because when I think of Stephen King I think of horror creepy books and this wasn’t that. I will say there was a scene that involved spiders that creeped me out because I HATE spiders. Hopefully I will have a review up within the next week.
I haven’t actually made any progress with Among Us this week. I am still only 12% through it but hopefully I can finish it this week sometime. I’ve been listening to Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy while I do my nails. I’m 75% of the way through it so I don’t have to much left to read. I have to admit though that after I read the first 15 chapters I went ahead and watched the movie. OOPS!! While I haven’t actually started A Christmas Story yet I do plan on starting it today. It’s a pretty short book so hopefully I can get through it pretty quickly.
There are 4 days left until the Short-A-Thon starts. I was hoping to have all of these books read before then but I’m not so sure that’s going to happen. I will most likely pick up The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily after I finish my current reads because I know what that ones about. As for Tidings of Great Joy I picked it up at a library book sale last year and I have no clue what it’s about.
Credit as always to The Book Date. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What did you think of them if you have? What have you been reading lately? What are your reading plans for the week? What Christmas books have you been reading?
