Reading This Week: 1st April 2019

We’re officialy in April, I can’t believe we’re already a quarter of the way through 2019. Today is the start of the O.W.L.s magical readathon and Unsolvedathon, so I’m making a start on my reading lists.

I’m starting my readathons with We Were Liars, the Disney retellings A Whole New World and As Old as Time, and Murder Games. These are all quite short so should be quick reads to help give me a good start to the challenges. These are also all paperbacks, and I’m on holiday from the middle of April so I want to read these first so I only have to take my kindle with me.

I’m also going to be reading A Good Enough Mother and Close to the Edge on The Pigeonhole. I read The Passengers on the app and it’s an interesting way to read a book, if sometimes slightly frustrating to have to wait for the next part instead of reading it all at once.

What are you reading this month? Are you taking part in any reading challenges or readathons?

Reading This Week: 25 March 2019

Last week was incredibly busy at work and the first half this week doesn’t look like it will be much quieter

I only finished two books last week, both on a work trip south of the border. I’m hoping to have more time to read near the end of the week, after all the work deadlines have passed.

I started In Bloom at the weekend so I’m hoping to finish that early this week so I can make a dent in my library books. I’m also reading The Passengers by John Marrs, through The Pigeonhole. This is my first book through The Pigeonhole and it’s an interesting way of reading. I have to wait for the next part to be released rather than racing through the entire book.

I have Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty and Roadwork and The Running Man by Richard Bachman (a pseudonym of Stephen King). I also have an audio version of Dark Places by Gillian Flynn so these week seems to be exclusively thrillers.

There’s a rare book fair in Edinburgh on Saturday so I’m planning to go along for a couple of hours and probably spend too much money on books

Here’s a picture of my little boy Dominick, looking particularly photogenic, on a walk on Saturday. This was taken approximately 45 seconds before the tiny moron tried to catch a bee and was subsequently stung.

Reading This Week: 11 March 2019

I finished a few audiobooks last week and I’ve already added more to my list for this week.

The Halloween Tree – I have several books by Ray Bradbury on my TBR list, but I haven’t read many. This is a short listen to start off with.
Altered Carbon – This is sci-fi mixed with crime mystery, two of my favourite genres combined, so this should be a really fun listen.
The Dark Web – I read and watch a lot of crime dramas and the dark web is often mentioned so I’m looking forward getting a more detailed picture of what it is.

I’ve also bought several new books for my kindle so I have a few recent releases that I’m looking forward to reading.

What’s on your TBR list this week?
