Book Bites: April 10

Welcome to Book Bites, where you get a glimpse into my reading life! This past week I made another dent in my pile, knocking out a short story collection, a YA that I’ve had on my nightstand half-finished for nearly two months, a blog tour book, and a library loan. I abandoned one that won’t be getting a review because I had such strong negative feelings about it that it’s not fair to the author – I won’t be able to be constructive. I’m still working on Gone With the Wind (enjoying it!!), more short stories, yet another library loan, and a 17-hour audio book.

This week, I need to get started on our Book Club book, and I just got Strange the Dreamer, which I’m soooo excited about. And my Netgalley queue is growing because I simply can’t stay away!!

Just Finished

What are you reading? What should I read next?!



It’s Monday! What are you reading! is hosted by Kathryn over at the Book Date. It’s a way to share what you’ve just read, are currently reading, and are reading next.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.


  1. Abandoning books is still tough for me, but I try to pay attention to the books I’m excited to read and the ones I have to force myself to pick up again. Good for you letting go of a book that was frustrating you!

    I loved The Bear and the Nightingale and I hope you are enjoying it too. Happy reading!

    1. It’s hard for me to abandon books too. I tend to put them aside and then “abandon” them months later! I’m listening to Bear and the Nightingale – it was slow going at first, but has finally picked up! I’ve been looking for this one for months!!!

  2. The Little Book of Hygge looks good to me as I’ve been reading a book about Finland and how they do things, and it has me really curious. And I wanted ti read Truthwitch but never did, 😦
    Hope you have a good reading week.

  3. I definitely want to read “Difficult Women” sometime. The only other book by Roxane Gay I’ve read was “Bad Feminist,” but I really enjoyed it.

  4. I am so curious about what book you didn’t like! Lol. I am glad that you enjoyed the hygge book, I did too. And it definitely inspired coffee and comforters! My husband is listening to Strange the Dreamer and is really loving it. I need to get it soon! The Bear and the Nightingale was my first read of the year – I really liked it. 🙂 I had to look up what a Russian stove from that time looked like though! Lol.

    The River of Kings looks really good!

  5. I’m reading The Magicians and a slew of YA possible books for my students – how was the Hygge book? I love that concept! I think you’d love the Magicians! BTW… Also just finished The Hate U Give – wow, was that powerful and beautifully written! Also, do you know about Book Riot? It’s definitely an addiction… 😛

    1. I read The Magicians a few years ago and enjoyed it! Jimmie is on the third one right now I think. Hygge was interesting, and a quick read! That review should be up in a couple weeks! I’m a huge Book Riot fan too. I’ll have to check out The Hate U Give!!
