Football Sundays are here! This is the beginning of my favorite time of the year. I love the cooler temps, watching football, and of course spookier reading. The annual R.I.P. reading challenge is here and I'm super excited to begin reading for it. I've already pulled off two stacks of books from my own shelves. I'm itching to get to the library though and grab a few from there as well. LOL! So consider this my official sign up post! I plan on reading as many as possible but I'm officially signing up for Peril the first which is just four books. I've actually already finished reading one book that I'm counting towards this challenge so three more to go!
Other than spooky reading, we've just been busy with games, practices, and school. I feel like I'm reading more than I have been but my reading numbers are just so far behind what they usually are that it doesn't seem to be making a difference. 37 books. I'm going to need September to be an amazing month of reading to give me any hope of reaching my goal of 75 books for the year. It may not happen, but it is fun to try! Since my last reading update I've finished two books. I finished the following books:
The Snowman by Jo Nesbo - This counts as my first official read for the RIP XII challenge. I first heard about this one on the Read or Dead podcast as there is a movie coming out soon based off of this book. I've got to say that I'm looking forward to the movie now! This was dark and twisted - probably not for all readers but I really liked it. This is my first time reading this series but it won't be my last (and I actually have a couple others in this series already on my shelves).
The Lost Girls by John Glatt - This was one of the most disturbing and difficult books that I've read in a long time. Made even worse by the fact that everything was true as this is a nonfiction read. What these three women went through was horrible! I took long breaks while reading this one because it was just all so hard to read about. I definitely won't be forgetting about this one any time soon!
I'm now currently reading the following:
I'm currently only reading one book as I haven't yet settled on a new print book to read. I love having an open schedule and being able to choose whatever I like for my next read. That being said this means that I'm also struggling on deciding what to read next. #Readerproblems....LOL! I'm enjoying this one so far even though I'm only about 20% in. I'm hoping to spend some quality time with it this afternoon.
All are review copies thanks to NetGalley and the publishers. Am I the only one that is struggling with the fact that some of these are 2018 releases already?!? Crazy! I'm really looking forward to reading all of these but especially the Jennifer Harlow book as I loved the first book in this series! My kindle is overflowing with goodness!
Now I'm off to spend the afternoon watching football and probably eating too much food. I've got laundry piles calling my name as well. I'm also going to try and settle on what my next print read should be. (If you are interested in some of the possibilities check me out on Litsy - Samantha.1020) I'm also hoping to write up a few reviews and get some reading time in. Sounds like a perfect Sunday to me!
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
