Hi everyone! It’s been a bit longer than I was intending. Last week, I had my dream vacation of kayaking with killer whales up in British Columbia. I first read about it when I was in high school and when the company I had targeted to do it through added a tour called “Whales, Wilderness, and Glamping”, I knew it was time to bite the bullet. I meant to get back to my regular posting schedule on Sunday, but, honestly, the trip wiped me out and I am exhausted. All I want to do is sit on my couch and watch YouTube videos. I’m almost too tired to read.
However, I want to try and get back to some semblance of normalcy, so, since it’s Wednesday, I’d figure I’d dive back in.
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Each week, you answer three questions:
What are you reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I am currently reading The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll. I’ve kept a bullet journal for about two years now, but have been a little burned out on it lately. I thought it might help to go back to the basics and read about the how and why from the creator himself.
I’m also reading Fledgling by Molly Harper. I requested the eARC from NetGalley, not realizing that it’s the second in a series. I do plan to go back and read the first, but I’m not lost because there’s a lot of exposition and backstory that keeps me afloat. It’s a cute story about a girl who was born into a non-magical family only to discover that she has magic. She’s sent to an exclusive finishing school for girls with magic and shenanigans happen. I’m really enjoying it.
The most recent book I finished was Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston, which I was listening to on audio. I’m not sure audio format was the best way for me to digest the story, because I kept forgetting minor characters, but I really enjoyed the story a lot. I can’t wait for the next book.
I also read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert because my Kindle broke while I was in Canada and I lost everything I had brought to read. Luckily, my B&B had a little library and this book was on the shelf. I can’t say I would have ever read it had I not been desperate, but I enjoyed it. It didn’t change my life and I definitely don’t want to follow her journey across the world, but it was an interesting read.
On the plane to Canada, I finished the book Jack of Thorn: Inheritance by Amelia Faulkner, which was an eARC from NetGalley. I really liked this book. One of the characters, Quentin, was just so interesting. Weird and unearthly, but interesting. I’ll post my review soon.
So, technically, I’m almost done with All the Better Part of Me by Molly Ringle, but it was lost in the Great Kindle Disaster of 2019. What happened was my water bottle came open in my purse and soaked my Kindle. It has since dried out and rebooted and works. I have all my books, except anything I transferred over to my Kindle via the cable. I also lost all my collections. The publisher sent me this book directly because she accidentally deleted my request but wanted me to read it. So, I need to redownload it and then swipe until I get to where I was. But, it’s an excellent book, so I will definitely do that. When I have some energy.
I also am going to read A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce, which is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin and Daring Greatly by Brene Brown, because I love her books.
How is your week going? Read anything good while I was gone? Drop me a comment below and let me know!
