Week in Review | November 18th-November 24th

a week in review

This week I did not do a ton of reading. I think the main reason was I spent a lot of time with my loved ones and I had a lot of fun. Am I bummed I didn’t finish a book? Yes. Would I change this week? No. Even though. I did not finish any books I really made some progress in some of the books I was reading and I started reading a new one. Also, I didn’t buy a book for myself this week as well. So that evened out nicely!

Also, I forgot to add my stats for the week. oops!

DividerI am Still Reading

A Noise Downstairs by Linwood Barclay

A Noise Downstairs

I am about a 82% through this book and I don’t know how I feel about it currently. I will be honest, I started to skip around and I don’t know why! I am thinking it is because I wanted to spend more time with my loved ones? Anyway, I am not skipping because the writing is bad or anything, in fact I am enjoying how the author switches from points of view and how the story has been strung together.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)

I have continued on with my reread of the Harry Potter series and I am already 54% through this edition. I am so excited to meet some character all over again and see some of the details I had forgotten. I love how Lupin was introduced! Anyway, I am loving this book just as I always have!

A Week in Review | July 9th – July 15th

a week in reviewSo this past week I got to thinking of how to best share my reading. Sometimes on twitter and goodreads I update way too much, but I cannot stop myself from inputting my progress into goodreads someone because I love seeing the percentage going up. So I decided to put a poll on twitter so see what you all thought was the best way to share.

It turned out the majority of my followers preferred a weekly update, with a close second in updating only when a book is finished. So I think I am going to put a detailed update here on my blog and on Sunday I will be putting a short list of books I finished that week if I finished any at all. I figured that would be a good happy medium. When I was looking for a format for this I remembered a format I saw over on Ashley Rae’s blog, check her out and asked her permission to kind of use that as a guide, Thanks Ashley! Without more explanations, here is my Week in Review.

Books I Finished

Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Pet Sematary

5stars

This book was so much better than I remember the movie being when I was younger. I actually got angry and was yelling at the main character a few times, I was that invested. It was very raw and really drew on some aspects of human nature that I feel many of us truly fear and maybe worry about. Even though I thought this was going to take my sometime to get through I ended up ging through a majority of it in a single day.

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

The Poppy War

2stars

So, I hate to have an unpopular opinion here, but I did not like The Poppy War. If you saw my goodreads review I made it clear that I do not think this is a bad book in anyway, but it was just not for me. I am not interested in a single individual taking on an Empire/Society. I used to love books in this genre, but not so much anymore. I also read this in a buddy read and a few of us agree that if you like the first part you may not like the rest of the book, or if you find the first part undesirable, you will like the rest of the book more. I also felt that things moved so quick sometimes that things seemed too easy or parts were missing from the story.

I am Still Reading

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

NOS4A2

I have about two more weeks in this buddy read and I am really liking this book a lot. I cannot wait to get to the end of it. It is taking a lot of self control to not rush ahead of the reading schedule. I am currently 59% through this book.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina

I am slowly making my way through this Russian classic, I am currently at 19%. I am really surprised at how timeless the story plot really is. It also is very easy to read, the translator did an amazing job! Divider
