Kelly

Currently reading: I haven’t anything in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’ve made an effort to take my eyes off my phone when I’m with the baby which has resulted in less ebook time, but more adorable moments. For now, adorable moments win out.
I think I read one chapter of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey, nothing to brag about. I’m sure I’ll get through this one because it’s been fun, I’m just going slowly.
Audiobooks are still where the money is with my reading. I’ve been making my way through The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) steadily. I might need more than a week to finish it, but I should finish it this month.

Recently finished: Nothing here. I’m learning to accept slow reading speeds.

Stranger

Reading next: Maybe I’ll start The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda before next week? Maybe? I can dream, haha.

Ghost

Currently reading: I haven’t managed much in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’m back to work now so it’s more my mom or mother in law who has Baby while they sleep, which was my prime reading time. I’m sure I’ll find a way to incorporate it into my life again soon.
Still not much in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ve been getting back into working out so once Baby is asleep, I’m very quickly following with no real reading time at night. If we can figure out a better routine, I’d love to start picking up physical books again.
The one book I am making good progress with is The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King). I’ve been able to do long walks and continue running which gives me chunks of time for this book most days. I’m enjoying it a lot and I’m hoping my husband will listen to it after me so we can talk about it.

Recently finished: Nothing this week but I posted my review for The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir on Monday. On reflection, I decided to raise my rating to Four out of Five Stars. I think I was still bitter about the end when I did the initial rating and this seems more fair.

Stranger

Reading next: I’m excited to start The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda soon. I think I’ll have started it by next week. October is a great time for thrillers.

Running

Currently reading: I got through another chunk of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I’ve found Baby sleeps well when we to outside so I’ve taken to sitting on the porch and reading with her strapped to my chest. We are all fans so far.
I’ve barley read any of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey since it’s a physical book and it’s hard to hold while holding a baby. I’m sure I’ll get through it eventually, but it will be a bit of a process.
I had a fair amount of Google Play Store credit and I decided to use it to buy an audiobook. I went with The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) since my library didn’t own a copy. I’ve just started but looking forward to this one!

81vZZPOsZ8LRecently finished: I flew through The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir this past week. We took a lot of walks where I got to listen and Baby is on a little bit of a schedule now which allows me to cook so I have that time for books, too. I found this one a bit stereotypical and a bit over simplistic but still enjoyable. I’ll try to have a review out next week. I’ll give the book Three out of Five Stars.

Stranger

Reading next: I went in a slightly different direction than planned for my audiobook but I’ll still keep The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda on deck to listen to next. Audiobooks seem to be the only format I have time for now so I anticipate this one coming up next despite having just started a new audio.

Ghost

Currently reading: I made some steps forward with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson again. It’s a good way to pass time with a sleeping baby on my chest when I know they’re going to wake up again soon. I’m actually feeling like I can finish this one now.
I’m getting a few pages in at a time with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I don’t get a lot of time in the evening to enjoy it right now. Once my baby is asleep, it’s a mad dash to join them in dreamland. We never know how long it’s going to last!
I was able to start The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir and make some good progress! I must have read this book before because a few scenes have been very familiar. Possibly I read it in middle school. I don’t remember how it ends at all so I’ll push forward.

Crows

Recently finished: I was able to wrap up The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray last week and even wrote my review which posted on Monday. I haven’t finished a series in a while so this one felt good. I had some issues with the pacing on this last book, but I still enjoyed it and felt like it wrapped up pretty well. I gave the book Four out of Five Stars. I’d recommend the series overall.

Stranger

Reading next: I’m going to guess I’ll fly through Cormier and will need a new audiobook sooner than anything. I went through my TBR and my library’s digital offerings and found a lot that were available that I wasn’t aware of before. Next up for me will be The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. This is one my sister in law gave me for Christmas and I hadn’t had time to pick up yet. I’m looking forward to a thriller!

Crows

Currently reading: I’ve made so much progress on The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray! I’m optimistic in thinking I can finish this week. It would feel really good to finish a book, especially one that’s so long!
No progress with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson but I’m optimistic I will make some more here in the near future. It’s so easy to have an ebook on my phone to pick up when I have a few minutes. It’s got a fast paced plot that’s helping me move through it, too.
Small steps forward on True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey but steps forward none the less. I’m enjoying the voice that Carey gives Ned and I’m looking forward to pushing forward in this one.

Recently finished: Nothing yet but I have a feeling there will be something here soon!

Kelly

Currently reading: I was able to start running again which means The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray is getting some play time! It feels great to get out, even if it’s just a mile for now. I decided I want to do a 5K on Thanksgiving so I’ll be keeping it up!
I found a chunk of time to read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson when the Baby was sleeping so I’m moving forward with this still. Slow going, but it’s taken a turn that I’m excited to explore.
I started making some good progress on True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey again. I’m focusing on it now so I’m hoping this will continue to move forward. I’ve liked what I ready so far.

Recently finished: No surprise, nothing here.

Ghost

Currently reading: Right now, The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray is the only book I’m making much progress with. I try to get out for a 1-2 mile walk each day. Sometimes, my husband keeps the Baby and I’m able to listen which is a treat.
I think I finished a chapter of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson but not much more than that. It’s moving pretty fast so I’m curious how long this book would take if I really dedicated some time to it. I might have to do an experiment this week.
I’ve been slacking with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I have some early childhood books that I’m skimming and it’s taking time away from reading this one. I only grab enough time for a few pages before my eyes close so once I am dedicated to it, it may still be slow going.

Recently finished: Nothing again this week. I’m honestly not expecting anything for a while. Baby has really slowed me down!

81vZZPOsZ8L

Reading next: I’ll keep The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir on the backburner. I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually!

Crows

Currently reading: I keep pushing forward with The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray. Washing dishes and some nursing times get dedicated to this which had kept me moving pretty steadily. I should finish in the next month before the service is discontinued. I’m being optimistic.
I wasn’t able to grab any time for The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I thought having a sleeping baby on my chest would be a good time for ebooks, but my arms have been too tired. We’ll see if I can find some more time next week.
I haven’t read much of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I used to read a lot in bed before sleeping but that’s changed a bit in the past month. Maybe I’ll get back to it someday, but it might be a while first.

Recently finished: Nothing new this week. I did manage to get my review of The Hangman’s Replacement by Taona D. Chivenko posted on Monday. As I said last week, this book wasn’t for me. I ended up giving it only One out of Five Stars.

81vZZPOsZ8LReading next: I’ll probably need an audiobook next. I think a short one will be welcomed and next up on my list is The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir. It will be good to get some more YA into my rotation. It tends to be fast paced which is good for me right now.

Kelly

Currently reading: I found out my library is discontinuing one of their eaudio platforms and it’s the one I’m using to listen to The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray. Needless to say, I’m pushing had to finish this one! I have about eleven hours left so it will be a small challenge, but I need a reading challenge these days and I’m ready for it!
I’m still grabbing small moments to read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I feel like it’s moving pretty quickly so I think I’ll finish it up in better time than some of my past ebooks.
I’ve only just started True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey so I can’t say much about it yet. I’m excited to have a new physical book, though!

Hangman

Recently finished: I finally finished The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko! This one was a real struggle for me. I liked the beginning of it, but there were scenes that were just so difficult to get through that I’d get stuck for a week or more, reading a page at a time before I grew frustrated and put the book down. It ended with a section like that, which was even more infuriating because I slowed to a crawl. I’ll post a review as soon as I find the time for it but know this got One out of Five Stars from me.

Reading next: No plans just yet. I’ll see how much reading I’m able to do with Baby around. They are sleeping well, but I’m not so a lot of my free time has been dedicated to napping and cleaning the house. I’ve got another month before I go back to work to try and even things out a bit.

Hangman

Currently reading: I’m back, all! Happy to be checking in after a few weeks off. I was a little single-minded with the new baby but we’re starting to develop a routine and get back to a few things. I even managed to read some of The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko and I think this will be the next book I finish. Here’s to hoping!
I’ve found a few minutes from time to time for The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray. It’s mostly while washing bottles and if I do my daily walk without my husband, but it’s something. I’m moving slowly but still really enjoying this one and looking forward to seeing how this series ends.
I find short bursts of time that are good to fill with reading The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. This book started off a lot differently than I suspected and I’m still interested to see where it goes.

Recently finished: Nothing new here this week and probably not again for a little bit, but I’m fine with the slower pace and expected it.

KellyReading next: I grabbed True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey and even took it to the hospital with me. That was a bit optimistic, in retrospect, but I was basing it on how much sitting around I had at a previous visit. I hope to crack this one open soon!
