This Week in Books | 07/06/17

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

Now: I'm in one of those moods at the moment where there's so much I want to read and so little time (work's very busy at the moment, so I'm not finding much time to just read one book) but as the winner of the Baileys Prize is being announced today and Stay With Me is on the shortlist, I'm really in the mood to pick it up when I get home this evening. I've heard amazing things about it and I know it's a lot of people's favourite to win the Baileys Prize, but whether it wins or not I'll be starting it tonight.

Then: I finished My Cousin Rachel at the weekend in anticipation of the new adaptation, starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin, which I'm going to see on Friday. Sadly it's probably the du Maurier novel I've enjoyed the least so far, but I did still like it. I reviewed it here if you'd like to know my thoughts on it!

Next: This book is proof of how busy I've been, as I received this via NetGalley around a week ago now and I still haven't started it, which is ridiculous considering I love Silvia Moreno-Garcia's work. To me The Beautiful Ones sounds like a Jane Austen novel with magic set in Mexico. What's not to love? I'll definitely be getting to this one soon, but I'd like to read Stay With Me first.

What are you reading?


  1. Sorry that My Cousin Rachel wasn't your favorite, but at least you still liked it! I am super curious about The Beautiful Ones, so I'll be looking forward to your thoughts. I just finished a book (Rebellion, The 100 #4) and I have NO idea what to read next. Maybe One of Us is Lying because I have heard good things? I am on the fence hahh.

    1. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on One of Us is Lying; I have a copy via NetGalley so I should read it soon myself. =) I'll definitely be reviewing The Beautiful Ones once I read it.
