Currently reading: I didn’t make much progress in Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton this week. We’ve changed around Baby’s bedtime a bit and we’re still adjusting to the new flow of our evenings. I hope to get back into a groove of reading this soon.
I keep moving through Dollface by Renée Rosen
at a good pace. This will be the next one I finish, I’m just not sure how soon it will be.
I’ve only read the first chapter of Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner
so far. It’s a little more odd than I was expecting or remembered of Faulkner. This was his first publication so maybe that’s why it’s different from what I remember. Either way, it hasn’t captured my attention so I’m not rushing it.

Recently finished: Nothing new this week, unfortunately. I’d been flying through books so it’s odd to have finally slowed down. I hope I can get back into a rhythm soon.

I was able to post my review of Malorie by Josh Malerman on Monday! Please take a look if you care to. I enjoyed the book and read through it very fast! I gave it Four out of Five Stars.

Reading next: I still plan to pick up Vessel by Lisa A. Nichols on audio as soon as I need to.

Currently reading: I’m still moving forward in Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton though I’ve slowed down for sure. I know this story so well that I’m not motivated to find out what comes next which I think is keeping me from pushing forward as fast as I would with a new read.
I made some pretty good progress in Dollface by Renée Rosen. I’m about 3/4 done now so I’m hoping this one wraps up soon and I’ll get to a new audiobook shortly!
I started Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner as an ebook. I’m a little hesitant to dive into this one because I remember not being a huge fan of Faulkner in high school. Though I think knowing there was a project at the end deterred me from enjoying it. I’m not far in now and so far, it seems a little dense to be reading while the Baby is falling asleep, but we’ll see if that changes.

Recently finished: I flew through Malorie by Josh Malerman much faster than I expected to! It was a thrilling pace and I enjoyed a lot about this book. Malerman has been knocking it out of the park for me this year and I’m loving that. I’m working on the review still. I gave it Four out of Five Stars

I was able to post my review of Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince by V.E. Schwab and illustrated by Andrea Olimpieri! I’m not great at reading and reviewing graphic novels so this was a bit of a challenge, but I still enjoyed it. I gave the series Three out of Five Stars.

Reading next: 
My next audiobook is going to be Vessel by Lisa A. Nichols. It’s been a bit since I’ve read anything in space so I’m looking forward to this one!

44510181Currently reading: I made a little progress with Rebeldes (The Outsiders) by S.E. Hinton but with a sick Baby at home, I’ve been collapsing into bed at night instead of reading before I shut off the light. Hopefully, things will turn around and they’ll be on the mend and I’ll be back to reading.
I’ve been keeping a good pace with Dollface by Renée Rosen. I’ll be on this one for a while, but it’s not going to be here forever. I’m hoping once my partner is fully recovered, I can run more and it will move faster.
I picked up Malorie by Josh Malerman a little sooner than I thought I would. It was a struggle to read a comic while holding the baby, so I picked this up to have something where it was easier to change font size. It’s a good adventure so far. I’ll see if I can keep up the pace!

Recently finished: I did wrap up Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince by V.E. Schwab and illustrated by Andrea Olimpieri! I enjoyed the backstory of Maxim and the adventure in this book, but I’m still not sure comics are a format for me. I tend to read the text and turn the page without really looking at the art enough. I’m not good at slowing down and appreciating that much. I’m a bit backed up on reviews but I know I’ll get to this one soon!

I was also able to post my review of Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). I absolutely loved it and gave it Five out of Five stars. Please pop over and read my thoughts!

51mXdAaJ+lLReading next: It’s hard to guess what I’ll need next, an ebook or an audiobook. If it’s an ebook, I’ll probably pick up Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner. I’ve had this on my list for a while and while I own a physical copy, I’m likely to get to an ebook sooner.
If it’s an audiobook, I’m likely to go for Vessel by Lisa A. Nichols. I’ve had this on my list or ages so it would be great to finally knock it out!
