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!
