My Week in Books

(#partner #freebooks. Thank you, Scribner; Skyhorse Publishing; William Morrow; and TLC Book Tours, for the free books to review. All opinions are my own.)

Last Week’s Reads:

  • Social Creature by: Tara Isabella Burton (William Morrow)
    • This one creeped me out! This quick and easy read was the perfect palate cleanser for me after reading The Huntress. 
  • The Huntress by: Kate Quinn (William Morrow)
    • I loved learning about the Soviet Union’s all-female night bombers and I loved following along as the characters tracked down The Huntress, but overall, this book didn’t hold up as well as The Alice Network (my full review here) for me. For my full thoughts, read my full review here.

Currently Reading/Listening:

  • The Island of Sea Girls by: Lisa See (Scribner) – Pub Date: March 5, 2019
    • So far, this one is interesting and I’m intrigued by the premise. However, the pace is slow and I’m concerned I may end up losing interest. I’m gonna push through a little more, but it may end up being a DNF. Stay tuned!
  • The Wrong End of the Table: A Mostly Comic Memoir of a Muslim Arab Woman Just Trying to Fit In by: Ayser Salman (Skyhorse Publishing) – Pub Date: March 5, 2019
    • “Forty-something years is a long time for someone to feel like an outsider in a nation made up of immigrants.” This quote is from the first few pages, and if it’s any indication for what’s to come…I’m here for it!
  • Dying: A Memoir by: Cory Taylor (Text Publishing)
    • I began this one and really enjoyed it, but I have more pressing books I need to get to before I feel like I can fully engage in this one. It’s a library book so I’ll hold onto it until its due date, but it may just not be the time for me. At only 140 pages, I’m really hoping to just devote and afternoon to it and finish it. 
  • 🎧Audio: Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by: Cheryl Strayd (Random House Audio)
    • Let’s be honest for a second: I haven’t listed to this for a couple of weeks now. But I LOVE it and it’s one of those kinds of books that are totally fine to dip in and out of. So for the sake of repetition, this is probably the last week this one will be on the list – until I actually get it finished!

Likely to Read Next:

  • Daisy Jones and The Six: by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Random House) – Pub Date: March 5, 2019
    • I mean, duh! Who isn’t planning on reading this ASAP?! I’ve only heard one mediocre review so this may just be my most highly anticipated books!

Tell me, friends, what’s been your favorite reads lately?

  1. Social Creature really was a creepy, but fun read. You nailed that one. You’re in for a treat with Daisy.

    It always amazes me with as many WWII books as I’ve read that there are still MORE things I’ve never learned about that war. Still a favorite sub-genre for me.
