Ghost

Currently reading: I might have read a page in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson, all because I didn’t want to report here that I’d read nothing yet again. I’m so close to the end, I just wish I could carve out time that was good for this.
I was slow in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey again. Our schedule change is still an adjustment and I’ve prioritized sleep again so less time for reading. I’m still tired so I must not be doing it well.
Again, my only progress has been in Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. I’ve found time to run and I’ve been driving around which are my two biggest chunks of time to listen to this. I never would have guessed I’d make such steady progress on a 26 hour audiobook, but I’m happy with my pace.

Recently finished: One day…

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: Maybe I’ll start A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman before Halloween.
I hope to find time to pick up Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton soon. I think it will take me a while to read so the sooner I can grab it, the better.

51FUsCV0vdL

Currently reading: Absolutely nothing in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson again. We had some big schedule changes last week so I haven’t found a way to fit this into my schedule again yet. Maybe this week as things slow down.
With those big schedule changes, I didn’t have as much time for True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’m getting less sleep and reading before bed becomes the first thing to go when that happens.
Surprisingly, I made some decent progress in Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. I’m over half way done now and moving forward well. The story is still slow and dragging a bit, but I’ll press forward.

Recently finished: Nothing seems even close to finished just now. I’ll have to see how the week goes before I’m ready to even guess what will go there.

51I9OngSemL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_Reading next: I’d hoped that reading A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman next might motivate me to finish my ebook, but no such luck yet.
I am excited to pick up Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton as my next physical book. I think it will be a slow read for me so it would be good to get to this as soon as I can. I hope that’s not too far off.

Kelly

Currently reading: I’ll get to The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’m not in a rush and it’s just hanging out, so I’m not too worried about this one.
I’ve made some good steps forward with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. Baby has been going down earlier and sleeping well so I’ve gotten some good reading time in!
Still moving steadily through Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. This one feels like it’s dragging quite a bit so I’m getting a bit frustrated with it at this point, but I’ll carry on.

Recently finished: It sounds crazy, but I think Kelly Gang will be the next one here and I don’t think I’m too far away from that!

51I9OngSemL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_Reading next: The plan is still for A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman to be my next ebook.
If I’m right and need a new physical book next, it’s past time for me to do my Spanish book of the year! My amazing husband got me Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton. This is one of my all time favorite books so I’m excited to explore it in Spanish.

Ghost

Currently reading: Again, nothing with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I know I’m close to finishing it, but I really have no push to get through to the end.
I’m making steady progress in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey and I’m picking it up most nights. I’m getting to the point in the story I’m more familiar with so it’s losing some novelty for me but I’m still enjoying the writing.
I’ve gotten to a third of the way through Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. It feels great to be making progress in this chunk of a book. I can tell I’m starting to get some time for myself again which is kind of nice.

Recently finished: Come back later.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: I know I’ll eventually have something here that will move to my ‘Currently Reading’ area, but it seems so far away. I hope to pick up A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman next. We’ll see what happens.

51FUsCV0vdL

Currently reading: I keep forgetting to read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson when I get time. I’ve been playing Wordle and variants of it to the point of obsession. I should read instead. This is a bad habit.
I keep picking away at True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey and I know I’ll finish it eventually, but it’s still not a priority over sleep. I think I’ve got my ducks in a row so I’m not pushing it.
I keep surprising myself with my progress in Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. I never would have guessed I’d be a quarter through it already! I’m feeling great about this.

Recently finished: I keep trying.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: Maybe if I think about how much I want to read A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman, I’ll actually make progress with an ebook. I’ll see if that works this week.

Kelly

Currently reading: I didn’t read anything from The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. I’m not in a rush to finish it, honestly. This one is falling a bit flat for me.
I made a little time for True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’m getting to the part of Ned’s life that I’m aware of so it’s fun to see it develop. I might have to watch the movie again after I finish this one. It’s been a while.
I’m making respectable progress in Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. I think the length is motivating me to find more time and keep moving forward more than I normally would!

Recently finished: Nothing this week, but that’s expected. I’m hoping to add something more soon!

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: If I can ever get myself to read my ebook, I’ll start A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman next. Maybe in time for Halloween?

Ghost

Currently reading: I wasn’t able to open The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson, though I did try! Baby is going through some big changes at their age so I keep looking up parenting advice instead of reading. Who knows if it’s helping.
I read just a little bit from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey but I have found I’m moving forward slowly. I think I can get it done in a reasonable time frame, but I’m still going to prioritize sleep first.
I’m still on the prologue of Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. It’s a long prologue so that’s not a bad thing, per say. This is going to be a long haul!

Recently finished: Nothing new this week but I was able to post my review of Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie on Monday so please to check that out! I gave it Three out of Five Stars. I’m excited for the next in the series!

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: I know I’ll start A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman eventually. I’m in no rush.

51FUsCV0vdL

Currently reading: I managed to read some of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson and for a minute I thought I might finish it. But that didn’t happen. I’m getting really close, though!
I got through very little of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey this week. I’ve been really tired and not sleeping well so time to read before bed has gone away. I’m trying to commit to sleeping more so we’ll see if I can make more time!
I started Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati! I’m still on the prologue, but I’ll get there. It’s so fun to start something new.

41JYZlm4QsLRecently finished: I finished Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie on Saturday! I’m so glad to have finally finished this. I gave it Three out of Five Stars. I hope to write the book review this weekend and have it for you all early next week! It can be hard to find time with the Baby, but I’ll try to sneak away during a nap or pass them off to Dad for a little bit and sneak away.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: If I can keep making some progress with my ebook, I should be able to start A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman soon! Remaining optimistic.

Kelly

Currently reading: I don’t think I read any of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson again. I wish this book grabbed me more so I had a reason to push forward with it, but it hasn’t demanded my attention as some have.
I read a chapter from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey which felt great! I’d love to make more progress with this one since I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Hopefully I can keep that up.
The weather has finally started to turn warm so I’ve been able to listen to Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie while running consistently. I’m so close! I know I’ll have this one finished next week.

Recently finished: I’m feeling confident I’ll have something next week!

51FUsCV0vdLReading next: I’ll get to A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman. Eventually
I’m really hopeing I’ll start Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati next week. It seems like a good time to start a nice long audiobook.

Ghost

Currently reading: I didn’t read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. I know I’m really close to finishing it, I just haven’t had any good time for an ebook so it’s lingering. If I can find a good time in my schedule to open it consistently, it will finish quickly, but I haven’t found a good time for that.
I did get through some of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ve been making an effort to read a few pages before bed each night and it’s great to see some progress here!
It’s been nice enough (between snow storms) for some running so I’ve made progress with Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie, too! I’ve got about 10% left in the audio. Here’s hoping it stays nice enough to finish it up soon!

Recently finished: Optimism, optimism.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: Here’s hoping I get to A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman some time in March. We’ll see if I can make that happen.
With the summer rolling around, I think I can get to  Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati soon. It’s just a matter of how long it will take to finish once I start.
