Book Bites: What I’m Reading Right Now (June 26, 2017)

bookbitesreadingrightnowWelcome to Book Bites, where you get a glimpse into my reading life! Here I chronicle what I’ve finished (and what you can expect reviews on soon!), what I’m reading right now, and what I’m reading next.

I know, I know. We missed a week last week. I didn’t read a single book, and I thought we’d change it up a little by skipping the “I’m in a slump” post. *grin*

Truthfully, it took me a while to recover from having my heart absolutely shattered by Beartown. Backman does that to me. Needless to say, I’m going to be reading a lot of fluff reads for the next couple of weeks. Which means, I’ll read like 4 books a week. I’m ok with that. (If I ever pick up the pace, that is.)

On the What I’m Reading Right Now front, I’m a little over halfway through Waking Gods, sequel to Sleeping Giants.  I picked up Neil Gaiman’s American Gods to listen to next, since I’m simply not going to get around to reading it in print. (Lots of Gods going on.) And speaking of print, my copy of Gone with the Wind still hasn’t arrived, what’s up with that??

Not much else new in my world – we went to a beer festival, we’re gearing up for the 4th of July, and I’m eagerly counting down the days until we’re back in Mexico. (48, in case you were wondering.)

  1. Broken wheel was a cute book, I got it on audio-book from the library last year. I can’t wait to read Waking Gods, just finished sleeping giants and it was so good.

    1. I’m glad to hear that about Broken Wheel. It’s our book club book this month!

  2. Okay, I think I’ll read Beartown when I can stand to be emotionally wrecked! I enjoyed A Man Called Ove, but I also cried through the end, so….

    1. Yeah, it’s a tough one! Not quite as good as Ove in my opinion, but worth the read if you like Backman!

  3. I’ve been wondering about Waking Gods since I liked Sleeping Giants but didn’t love it. I’m kinda undecided on whether to read the second one. And Truthwitch! I keep forgetting about that one. I’ve been wanting to read it…

    Hard to believe the 4th of July is NEXT week…
