I’m so glad it’s the weekend.
If you’re reading this, that means that I am up in the mountains somewhere. Maybe I’m in a kayak, maybe I’m on the porch with my book, or maybe I’m even watching a bear walk through the backyard. All of this has happened before. Just know that I am away from my keyboard and this post is scheduled.
Time traveling is fun!
I might post some pictures of my weekend getaway. Feel free to check those out on my Instagram!
Here’s what I’m reading this weekend.
I picked this up from my local library, but haven’t really had the chance to read it. I got sucked into Black by Ted Dekker for a few days, but I’m really excited to crack this Throne of Glass novel open. I really enjoyed Crown of Midnight and I hear the third one is even better. I’ll start this one on Friday evening while I’m in the car.
When I finish this novel (if I finish this novel), I’ll be bringing a back up book along.
I’ve read Gone Girl and Dark Places and I loved both of them, so I’m really excited about this book. I don’t really know much about it, but if it’s anything like her other books, it’ll be a page-turner for me.
If I finish both books, I need to get out of the house more. We’ll see how the weekend goes.
Question of the Week
I recently joined another group on Goodreads called “Weekend Reads.” It’s a blog/YouTube vlog group in which we answer a different question every week when we let you know what we’re reading.
This week, the question is:
Christmas in July! What are some pre-orders/new releases you’re looking forward to for the remainder of the year?
This was a recent topic for Top 5 Wednesday, but that’s alright.
I’m getting really excited for The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. I actually didn’t really know about this book until the aforementioned Top 5 Wednesday. This novel is about the best friend of the local hero of the city. He’s just a normal guy trying to live a normal life while his best friend has to save the world. I really like the premise of this novel because I like to think about what it’s like to be the side character! It is expected to be released on August 27, 2015.
See you when I get back!
