Happy Sunday everyone! Fall weather has hit here and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I'm actually typing this up on Saturday afternoon with the windows open, a blanket covering me to keep the chill off, and the sound of rain which is the absolute icing on the cake. This is my absolute favorite time of the year for a reason. I am one of those rare birds that enjoys all four seasons (yes, even the snow and cold) but fall has always been my favorite.
I haven't finished a single book this week. I'm in the middle of four books currently which is absolutely unheard of for me. In reality that looks like me with bookmarks in three books and actually reading the fourth one on a continual basis. I always want to read all of the books, but lately I REALLY WANT TO READ ALL OF THE BOOKS! It's kind of affecting my focus because it just feels like I want to read everything and right this second. So basically that seems to have led to me starting multiple things and finishing none of them this week. I need to do better next week! When I get like this, I usually try to slow down reading which seems like the opposite of what one would want to do. But I don't want to race through books....so I'm really working on just enjoying that one book that I'm focusing on and then I can do the same thing with one of the other books I have currently going. That's the plan anyways!
I've also been very blessed this week with book mail thanks to publishers. I've gotten out of the habit of sharing about the books I receive for review on here but I would like to change that. I'm hoping that by sharing it will also keep me accountable to share my thoughts on these books after finishing. I can always use the gentle push especially when it comes to writing up my thoughts. With that being said, I'm planning on sharing my thoughts on at least two books this week (not in this pile) that I received for review but haven't yet shared my thoughts on. Maybe three if I'm feeling extra motivated (I'm woefully behind on reviews in general). Anyways, these books all hit my mailbox this week so hence one of the reasons why I'm feeling the need to read ALL of the books. Let's move on though to what I'm currently reading.
I currently have bookmarks in the following books:
The Widow of Rose House by Diana Biller is the book I'm really actually reading. It is absolutely delightful! I'm just a little over halfway through this one (I'm reading it on my e-reader) and you guys I swear I'm reading it with a smile on my face half of the time. If you enjoyed A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn, then I really think that you will enjoy this one as well. I haven't seen this one much on bookstagram yet which is just a shame because it really is a delight so far!
Trace of Evil by Alice Blanchard is a print copy of a book that is due to release in December if I'm correct. The ONLY reason that I'm not reading this one right this second is because of the above book and it will be what I'm diving into exclusively next if I'm honest. I'm such a sucker for women detective fiction so this is kind of already my jam.
Death Masks by Jim Butcher should really need no explanation. I NEEDED some Harry Dresden in my life and purposefully read the first few pages so that it wouldn't end up going back to the library unread. It has been at least a year since I read the fourth book in this series so it is definitely time to dive back into Harry's world!
After the Flood by Kassandra Montag has been all over the bookstagram world lately so of course I requested it from the library. I probably wouldn't have started this one but another bookstagrammer was reading it and I decided to just add one more to the pile and read it with her. It's actually due back to the library soon though so if I can't renew I will just let it go back and get to it another time.
Whew! That's a lot. Plans for Sunday include laundry and reading. The Walking Dead returns this weekend which I'm pretty pumped about. We will be watching football and just basically being as lazy as possible while also preparing for the upcoming week. That's my plan anyways - we will see what actually happens!
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
