IMWAYR

This wonderful meme is the brainchild of Sheila from Book Journey. Sadly due to work commitments I do not partake as much as I would like. However my toe is dipped in the water enough to be classified as lukewarm!

This week there has not been much reading going on over a Blog A Book however I am aiming to catch up with myself – after the steak dinner and glass of red my friend will imminently provide.

So the nitty-gritty . . .

Currently Reading

Our Tragic Universe, Scarlett Thomas, Books, Reading, Fiction, Canongate, Blog A Book Etc

This book is surprisingly difficult to get into and my feelings towards it at the moment are far from positive. However thinking back to The End of Mr Y – I will stick with it for another 50 pages and see how I go.

Finished Reading

For Once in My Life, Marianne Kavanagh, Books, Reading, Review, Fiction, Relationships, Blog A Book Etc

All I need to say here is Marianne Kavanagh is a great writer and just all out lovely person. Her book was enjoyable as you can read HERE and she is just so sweet which you can see HERE.

#IMWAYR

IMWAYR, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, Books, Reading, Book Blog, Blog A Book Etc

Many Monday’s have passed with lots of goings on including reading, writing and just general life. However I have missed out on the weekly meme to update you lovely people on my not so exciting life. So here goes!

Currently Reading

For Once in My Life, Marianne Kavanagh, Reading, Books, Fiction, Chick Lit, Blog A Book Etc

 

This is one book that I have picked up and put down quite a lot. However that is only due to lack of time, the writing style is fun and fancy free which means you can dip in and out without losing track of the story line. The copy that I have looks like a large print book however it is just quite a big page size – which I love.

On Friday I posted a list of books that I hope to finish in August and For Once in My Life is one of the three. Looks like I better get a move on.

Next to Read

Our Tragic Universe, Scarlett Thomas, Books, Blogging, Reading, The End of Mr Y

 

Already a fan of Scarlett Thomas from reading The End of Mr Y many years ago this book has been on my list for quite some time and I will finally get around to it after my current read.

Finished Reading

The Unfinished Symphony of You & Me, Lucy Robinson, Books, Reading, Fiction, Chick Lit, Blogging

This book was a great read. My review has been posted HERE.

Yet another week has gone by and a little bit more reading has been achieved. Have I been listening, well . . .

Currently Reading

60 postcards

This book has been to so many places with me that I had to take off the wonderful cover in fear of more damage!
I am trying to pick it up at every interval I get and I am so close to the end now that in a way I don’t want it to end.

Finished

It ‘s still early in the day and I am hoping to get to the end of 60 Postcards! Who knows it might be an audio week over here!

So far I like the concept of this book but it really is just weird. I like a good mystery like most but this is a few steps beyond!

Song of the Week

Β I have listened to this song so many times this week and each time I hit play I just smile.
On a recent walk to Wimbledon this came on and I just bopped along smiling and singing in the sunshine.
Don’t you just love it when that happens!

What are you reading this week?

Last week was a busy one over here on the work side of things as I had one day off which was used up to catch up on sleep and a new hobby.

Currently Reading

60 postcardsThis book is a real heart-breaker and due to not having a lot of time I have not really made any progress on this since my last weeks post. My currently reading book you may have noticed has changed but that is just the way the cookie crumbles! This book is part of Books on the Underground which I am taking part of and it is really just lovely.

Currently Listening

So far there hasn’t been an attachment to this book but I am sure it will come.

This is most definitely not my type of book but I have heard such good things about it. Very much looking forward to listening.

Finished Listening

The Vintage Girl by Hester Browne

It took a while but I got to the end finally. The review will be up either this week or next so keep your eyes peeled. It was a fabulous book and the narrator was just so sweet. Kudos and thanks to Audible.

What’s Next?

Possibly!

The Unfinished Symphony of You & Me by Lucy Robinson

I did start this book however put it down to skip over to 60 Postcards – this will possibly be the next listen and read over here.

So what have you been up to and what are you reading right now?
