My Week in Books #4

WEDNESDAY - myweekinbooks

Hey guys, Happy Wednesday!! How have you been? I just finished a meeting with the administration of our faculty and it was a very long meeting that I’m just happy when it ended. I have another meeting to attend later but until then, I have pretty much nothing else to do in the office.

Anyway, here’s my round-up for this week, a feature hosted by Lipsyy from Lipsyy’s Lost and Found. It’s similar to WWW Wednesday (hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words), so I’m linking to both :)

Then: I got to read three books last week. The first one was From Here to Home by Marie Bostwick, which I loved because it’s a book with strong female characters and it deals with serious issues such as Down syndrome and PTSD among others. You can read my full review here. The second book I read was The Rejected Writers’ Book Club by Suzanne Kelman. This book was ridiculously hilarious, chockful with strange, quirky characters. Some of it doesn’t make sense, but I felt that’s what makes the book so enjoyable. I wrote a review for it here. The last book I read was Samantha Tonge’s How to Get Hitched in 10 Days. I’ve been wanting to read this novella since it was released earlier this year because I thought the premise is cute, but it kinda fell flat. It’s always either hit or miss with novellas with me cos I kinda enjoyed some parts of it, but for other parts it’s just okay. Not too bad but not something everyone can enjoy, in my opinion. I’m still looking forward to read other longer books by Samantha Tonge though.

Now: I’m currently reading Dear Thing by Julie Cohen. I’m only about 100 pages in but I can feel this is going to be an emotional roller-coaster ride because it deals with infertility and surrogacy, so I’m having my tissues ready for any emotional downpour.

Next: Looking at my March TBR, I have these two books waiting to be picked up, so it’s going to be either one of these, depending on my mood. Both A Home in Sunset Bay by Rebecca Pugh and Our Song by Dani Atkins have received good reviews, so I’m looking forward to reading them.

Waiting on Wednesday (at Breaking the Spine)

28425994This week, I’m waiting for the release of Flawed by one of my favourite authors, Cecelia Ahern. This is her first time writing YA, and to be very honest, I’m very apprehensive to read YAs but it’s Cecelia Ahern, I have to read it! I have seen mixed reviews of the book but one of the reviewers whom I trusted her views said she loves it, so I can’t wait 🙂

Have you read any of these? What do you think? What have you read this week? Link me up ^^

  1. I have been trying to find a copy of Our Song but think I am going to have to go through Amazon Marketplace to get one. For some reason, it’s not even available on Kindle here in the states.. Looks like you are reading some really interesting books. Hope you love them all.

  2. I’m glad The Rejected Writers Book Club was funny. It sounded like a hilarious concept. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  3. I feel like that’s always the case with novellas! And I wonder if authors work as hard on them, since most of the time they’re additional kinds of things–and have only recently really been for sale, having mostly been free previously–and probably don’t undergo the same editing process as full novels? I dunno, but I don’t read too many of them myself. 🙂

    Our Song sounds really interesting! I thought Dani Atkins’ name sounded familiar, so I looked her up and she wrote Fractured–which I ADORED–so I’m going to have to get this!

    i hope you’re having a great week!!

  4. Interesting choices! Now I’m gonna add some more books to my endless TBR xD I’m interested in Marie Bostwick’s books so I’ll check them out! I love the title of The Rejected Writers’ Book Club, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it, it sounds fun. Dear Thing has made it to the “Most wanted” part of my wishlist, it’s a delicate subject and I’m curious to see how the author handled it.
    Here’s my week in books 🙂 https://chocolatenwafflesblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/30/this-week-in-books-march-30th/
