Monday's Reading Recap

I  haven't posted a reading recap in so long because I'll be honest: I haven't been totally invested in this blog lately because of everything else going on. Not to brag about my stress, but I've been working on turning our new house into a home, planning a wedding (less than 3 months away!!), preparing for a new baby nephew (which means lots of crocheting), and not to mention that summer is a big season for big birthdays! Ay yay yay! All that said, I actually have been finding time to read, even if it's just via audio book while crocheting. But I am seriously about 9 book reviews behind and I'm not even sure if I'm going to get to reviewing some of the books I've read this summer. I'm just happy I have a lot of book reviews scheduled already so you won't be getting rid of me too easily.

How is everyone else's summer going? What's the best book you've read so far (newly published or not)?

Last Week I Finished Reading: Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup and Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

  This Week I Plan on Reading: Requiem by Lauren Oliver, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and (hopefully I'll get to) Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

This Week I'm Sharing a Review For: Memories of Babi by Aranka Siegal

What books did you recently discover? 


  1. You DO have a lot of stress in your life right now! Audiobooks are the way to go, I think. Good luck!

    Here's my It's Monday!

  2. i can't imagine how you're dealing with wedding planning and house project at the same time.
    i read The Book Thief - and i think it's overrated. it's not as good as all the talks i heard about it, in my opinion - ha. and right now i'm halfway finishing Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda. and i haven't found the reason why i should finish the last half of the book.

  3. I've gotten hooked on Rainbow Rowell's books this year. I haven't read Attachments yet, though. Hope you enjoy it!

  4. You have so much going on right now! Sometimes it's tough to find time for reviews when you're really busy. I wouldn't stress about it too much - maybe write mini reviews if you feel like it?

    The Great Gatsby is one of my all time favorites and I really enjoyed Attachments. I hope you like both of them!

  5. A wedding, a new home and new baby are all exciting things!

    Have a great reading week,

  6. Wow, you have a lot going on this summer. I love audio reads at least you can still get some books in. :) Enjoy your reads.


  7. Your life is so intense and exciting right now! Reviews can wait quietly in the background while you enjoy it! And yay Attachments! I haven't read Landline yet either, but now I want to even more. I will probably have to library it!
