Friday Reads | Hiding From The Cold

downthebookholeIt snowed this morning and its colder than an ice cube outside. That means besides running a few errands and going to the gym this weekend I will be hiding in my apartment cleaning, watching the new season of The Great British Baking Show and reading a ton! I have a quite a few books I want to be able to finish this weekend. I need to focus on reading over social media because social media and rewatching Grey’s Anatomy have been consuming all of my time. I am currently about halfway through  I’ll Be Gone In the Dark by Michelle McNamara, so far this book has been so gripping, but it has been freaking me out since I live alone. The slow reveal of the events, connections and horrific acts is so brilliantly done. I also started The Crowns of Croswald by D.E Night which is one of the books from the Traveling Book group I am a part of with some others from the book community. So far the book is whimsical and full of magic, which is very reminiscent of Harry Potter. It is a quickish read but is taking me a little longer because I am writing in the margins and making notes. I have been falling asleep the past few nights listening to the audiobook of Pretties by Scott Westerfeld. I have only made it about a third of the way through because I dont last very long before passing out. This is a reread for me and I am so glad that I am rereading this series because I am enjoying it just as much as the first time. This was the first YA series that really got me back into reading other books rather than just rereading all the books I loved. Today I picked up the whole Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull from the library. I received book 1 & 2 in the spinoff series by Brandon Mull and figured I should read this original series first! So tons of reading to be had this weekend!

Friday Reads | Last October Weekend

downthebookholeWith it being the last official weekend of October, I need to fit in all of the spooky, creepy reads! Earlier this week I read The Bone Artist by Madeleine Roux and it was exactly what I needed to get back in the Asylum series world and to make it really feel like it is Halloween time. I jumped right into the 3rd book in the Asylum series, Catacomb by Madeleine Roux and I am about 100 pages into it! It is the goal to finish it this weekend! I also went to the library this week and picked up I’ll Be Gone In the Dark by Michelle McNamara. I was told by a coworker about this book and I am really looking forward to starting this one. I have a weird obsession with True Crime and don’t read enough in this category. I also haven’t really been listening to audiobooks lately, but started one the other night when I was struggling to fall asleep. I am like 3 chapters into Wink, Poppy, Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke. It is interesting so far and I am intrigued to see how it goes.
