It's Monday again! Time again for this weekly bookish meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. For me, today marks the first Monday since the end of the school year, which means a more relaxed schedule . . . and hopefully, plenty of time for reading great books and continuing to develop my skills as a book blogger. I'm still fairly new at all of this, but I feel like I've come a long way since April!
Last week, I finished these three books:
I posted my reviews of Julia Fierro's Cutting Teeth and Ayelet Waldman's Love and Treasure (you can click on each title to read my review). My review of The Rise and Fall of Great Powers by Tom Rachman will be coming later this week.
Last week on the blog, I also posted the Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List. Ha, we'll see how well I do at completing all of those books this summer! I know that other books will pop up during the summer months, so a few of those books will probably be pushed to fall for me. In any case, it's certainly a list of books I want to read at some point this year.
Here's what I'm reading right now:
I am currently reading an ARC of Jennifer Murphy's I Love You More, which is a newly released mystery with a plot centered on a man with three wives. Review to come later this week on that one, hopefully. I'm listening to Americanah by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie as an audiobook. I am just at the beginning, but I'm really enjoying it so far. I often take quite a while to finish an audiobook, and this is fairly long one, so it may be a few weeks before I can post my thoughts.
This week I had hoped to participate in my very first giveaway as a blogger, the Literary Blog Hop hosted by Judith at Leeswammes. Unfortunately, time got completely away from me, with some important family issues going on last week, and I didn't have the opportunity to learn how to do a giveaway properly! I don't want to make a mistake the first time I do it and commit a disastrous blogging faux pas, so for this time I opted out. But I will be checking out the great blogs and their giveaways for the next couple of days, and I encourage you to do the same! The giveaways are open to everyone, by the way--not just bloggers. So check it out--free books and gift cards! You can enter through Wed, June 26; just click here. I hope very much to participate in the next Literary Blog Hop!
Hope you have a good week with time for some wonderful reading!
