MY WEEK ON WEDNESDAY | #12
My Week On Wednesday is a weekly link-up post in which I share with you what I've been reading, what I'm reading next, and any other bookish stuff I enjoyed in the past week! (Click on book images to view Goodreads page.)
I've had a great reading week so far - Bout of Books has me more focused on spending time with my books! So far I've finished two - Boo, which I've already reviewed (read it here) and Life After Life, which I was reading in preparation for A God In Ruins. I enjoyed both of these books, though Life After Life was definitely my favourite of the two. I get what all the fuss was about! Full review to come, but for now let me say that while I'm not usually a fan of historical fiction, when I do read it I prefer England in the early- to mid-20th century. This book straddles both, and also manages to take time travel and make it fit without feeling sci fi-ish and without overt inconsistencies. So it ended up being a very enjoyable read, one that I imagine I'll be thinking about for a while to come!
After finishing up with Boo and Life After Life, I dived directly into these two. So far I'm loving We Are Made of Molecules (I'm not as far into A God In Ruins and I know it'll take a little longer to feel my way into, but I anticipate loving it as well!). WAAMoM should be a quick read, so I'm hoping to finish it today or tomorrow.
I'm excited to get into this - I'll be reading it with the lovely Katie from Bookish Tendencies. You know, once she's finished having her heart torn out by A Little Life (sorry, Katie!). I've heard nothing but positive feedback about this book, so it's definitely one I'm looking forward to!
In other news:
I just got back from the dentist. No, I don't want to talk about it. Send chocolate.
On a happier note, I did finally see Age of Ultron, and it's definitely worth heading to the theatre for! Lots of action and plenty of humour. Just how I like it.
That's it for my week - what about you guys? Link up or share in the comments!
