It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, that is guaranteed to add to your reading list.
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! I know that I have been enjoying some quiet time with my husband the past few days, and it has been amazing.
I also managed to read a few books!
Read Last Week(ish):
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel: This book was really good!! I have to admit, I found some parts of it super slow, like some of the flashbacks, but overall, I really did enjoy this book. And how cool that it took place in Michigan!
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens: I finished! I am so proud. Lol. My first Dickens. I feel that this was an easy one to break me in though.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater: This was a gift from my husband for Christmas- I love this series, and this book was no exception.
Reading This Week:
I am having a hard time landing on a first book of the year! The problem is that I am waiting on a bunch of holds from the library. So, whatever I read will be one of these:
Us by David Nicholls: This is our book club read for December. I have been waiting and waiting for it.
My True Love Gave to Me by assorted authors: I have to admit, this is the one I want to read most. I saw it on Bits and Bobs and knew I had to read it!
The Wild Truth by Carine McCandless: I have a feeling this will be sad.
Posted in the Last Week or Two:
Ensconced in our bubble, we have been watching The Originals. We are fans of The Vampire Diaries, but The Originals is even better! We finished the first season, and are bummed that we can't get the second season streaming!! We also watched The Big Year, and went to see The Hobbit, which was good but I felt it was a little long. Plus it made me cry. We are hoping to see Wild today, before the arctic cold slinks in to the area.
