Ghost

Currently reading: Maybe when we travel this week I’ll pick up The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I don’t think I’ll get to it because we’ll be busy seeing family, but there’s an outside chance?
I didn’t read a page from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I was doing better with books when Baby was born but now that they go to sleep a little faster, I’m sacrificing reading time for sleep. I think most parents would agree that’s a good trade off.
I’m still moving in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott  and hope to make some more moves this week! I’m enjoying this one a lot and I see the climax coming soon.

Recently finished: Maybe next week? I’ll be optimistic.

Reading next: I still plan on Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie and I’m hoping to start it before the end of the year, but nothing’s for sure yet.

Currently reading: I hope I still remember where I am in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson when I can pick it up again. I was enjoying this one and I’d hate to feel lost in it.
I think I read two pages from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ll get to it eventually.
I made some good progress in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott with a doctor’s appointment I had. It was far away and I had to make a long detour on the way home so this one is actually making some good progress!
Many of you expressed interest in me talking about the children’s books I read Baby each week. I’m trying to think of the best way to incorporate this so stay tuned!

Recently finished: I’m sure there will be something here eventually!

Reading next: It’s looking like Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie might be my first book of 2022 instead of my final one of 2021. Nothing wrong with that! Though, I will be a bit sad not to have finished my reading challenge for the first time. There are other priorities this year, though!

Kelly

Currently reading: Absolutely nothing with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. This last week was absolutely nuts for no reason I can think of looking back. I’m just glad to have made it through!
I didn’t make progress with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey either. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure when my physical reading will pick up again, but it’s not going to be the immediate future!
I did listen to a little bit of The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott on the one run I was able to do. I’m still enjoying it and I think this is the one book I’ll continue to make progress in.

Recently finished: Yet again, nothing this week. I’ve thought about putting together a list of all the kids books I read each week but I don’t feel justified counting those toward my Goodreads challenge for the year.

41JYZlm4QsL

Reading next: I still plan on Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie but I’m guessing I won’t start this one until 2022 at the rate I’m going. Better late than never?

Ghost

Currently reading: I wish I could say I read something from The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson but I’d be lying. I did have a great week with Baby, so I’m not complaining!
Nothing more in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I think we’re close to sleeping in different rooms so maybe I’ll be able to get a few pages each night once that happens. But I’m not rushing it, I love having all of us in one room!
I made progress in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott during my runs. Though, I do plan to slow those down a bit now that my Turkey Trot is over (it went great, by the way!). I still think audio will be my fastest format, but maybe not as fast as it was before.

Recently finished: Nothing new here this week but I’m not surprised. I’ll get some more books finished eventually.
I published my review of The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda on Monday so please check that out when you get a minute. I enjoyed it and gave the book Four out of Five Stars.

41JYZlm4QsL

Reading next: I’m fairly certain I wont’ finish my reading challenge this year, but I’ll try! I’ll plan on picking up Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie as my next book. If I don’t finish it until after the new year, I’ll consider it a jump start on my 2022 challenge!

0451498631.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_SX500_

Currently reading: Again, nothing with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. Ebooks have never been my favorite so it’s no surprise that this format is slow going for me. I’m not too upset about it, really. I’m fine with it lingering.
I knocked out another few pages of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. My partner has to walk with the Baby before they go to sleep and I use those few minutes to crack open this book. Hopefully they’ll go down more easily soon, but I’m fine with little bits for now.
I’m excited to say I started The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott late last week and I’m enjoying it already. I love well-written nonfiction and this fits squarely into that bucket. Maybe some longer runs can help me make good progress with this one, but I’ll probably slow down running a bit after my Turkey Trot tomorrow.

StrangerRecently finished: I wrapped up The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda while driving home from the nanny’s on Thursday and it felt so good to finish a book! The ending of this was satisfying because I wouldn’t have guessed it and it was well woven into the story. I’ll try to get a review written soon if Baby will let me.

Reading next: It’s way too early for me to be thinking of this! Maybe I’ll look into it next week.

Stranger

Currently reading: Nothing new with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. I really need to figure out a new time that I can set aside for ebooks since I’ve hit such a wall with this one despite enjoying it when I do pick it up.
I got through a few pages of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’m trying to read a little bit while my husband walks with Baby to get them to sleep. It’s slow going, but it’s movement.
I should finish The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda this week. I had a few drives that pushed me much further in it than I would have expected and I’m enjoying it a lot!

Recently finished: Maybe next week? I’m optimistic!

Reading next: I’m ready to jump into The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott and enjoy some nonfiction! Hopefully next week.

Kelly

Currently reading: I think I read about a chapter of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson during the flight. My arms got tired of holding the phone high enough that I could read over Baby’s head. I know that’s a lame excuse. It was easier to play the in-flight chess game.
Nothing new with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey this week. I don’t know why I’ve slowed down so much with this one and I really wish I could get back to it!
I have moved forward in The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. I’m about half way done and enjoying this one because it’s keeping me guessing. I’ve been running during my lunch breaks so I haven’t been as skittish with the spooky feels this one gives me.

Recently finished: Same as last week. Probably nothing new here again for at least a week.

0451498631.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_SX500_

Reading next: My next audiobook is going to be The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott. It’s been a bit since some good non-fiction so I’m looking forward to digging into this one!

Ghost

Currently reading: Nothing again with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. We’re traveling this weekend and I’ll read this instead of a physical book if I get a spare second so maybe there will be some movement this week?
I think I read two pages from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey, so that’s something! Baby is starting to go to bed easier so I might be able to get back to this soon.
I have made good progress on The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. I’m running more consistently which gives me good listening time. Though running in the dark and listening to this does make me jumpy!

Recently finished: Nothing this week. Probably not next week either. Eventually.

Reading next: It will be an audiobook, I can almost guarantee. I’m only a quarter through my current one so I have time to figure it out. I’ll decide next week.

Stranger

Currently reading: This week was not a good one for The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. Being back at work has made my ebook time all but disappear for now. I’ll have to think of some new ways to get this back into my rotation.
Not much for True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey either. I read two pages one morning before the baby woke up. Small steps, right? I’m not sure they could get much smaller through, haha.
I finally started The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda! I’m not too far into it yet so I’ll hold my opinions for a bit but I’m excited to have a spooky read before Halloween!

RunningRecently finished: I wrapped up The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) on Saturday. My husband is a huge help with the baby on the weekends when he gets his snuggle time in. That gave me time to garden and do some running which was a great time to wrap up this book. I’m still back and forth about how much I enjoyed this one. It didn’t blow me away, but it was still enjoyable. I’m giving it Four out of Five Stars for now, but I’ll reserve the right to change that the more I think about it. My review went up Monday so go check it out if you get a chance.

Reading next: I’m going to keep this blank for now. I seem so far away from finishing another book so I’ll take another look next week when books are hopefully moving along a bit.

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.
