This Week in Books | 29/06/16

This week I'm joining in with Lipsy @ Lipsyy Lost & Found to talk about the books I've been reading recently!

Now: I'm slowly getting back into the reading zone. I managed to read three books last week, which is the most I've read in a week in a long while, and it feels wonderful to be enjoying stories again. I've been trying to get ahead on my eARCs - in fact two of the books I finished last week were NetGalley reads - and now I'd like to challenge myself to finish the books which I've listed as 'Currently Reading' on Goodreads before I pick up anything new. Now considering I'm coming out of the biggest reading slump I've ever had I'm not going to be too strict with myself - if something calls to me, I'm going to read it - but I know I'd really feel like I've accomplished something if I get those books under my belt. One of those books just happens to be Longbow Girl, and I think it's going to be a lot of fun. I'm trying to read more books which feature time travel, and considering I currently live in Wales I haven't read much set in Wales.

Then: Over the weekend I crossed two eARCs off my TBR: Silvia Moreno-Garcia's Certain Dark Things, which I loved, and Anne Tyler's Vinegar Girl, which I didn't. Right now my blog pretty much consists solely of book reviews as I'm catching up on my reading and reviewing, so look out for my review of Vinegar Girl next week to find out why I didn't like it!

Next: Continuing with the theme of finishing books I've started, I'd like to cross The Geek Feminist Revolution off my TBR. I've enjoyed the little I've read so far and heard amazing things about the rest of it, so I'm hoping to really love this one - plus I'd like to read more 2016 releases in 2016!

What are you reading this week?


  1. The Geek Feminist Revolution sounds fascinating! I can't wait to read your thoughts on it :D Happy reading Jess^^ xx

    1. Thanks Micheline! :) I'll definitely be reviewing it once I've finished it.
