MY WEEK ON WEDNESDAY | #19


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 only finished one book in the past week, but man, was it ever a good one! This is the magical story of one very large dog, George, who is adopted by a man going through a difficult divorce. George hasn't had it easy either, and it turns out the the pair help each other in ways neither expected. It made me cry, it made me laugh, it made me want to adopt a 140-pound, water-loving dog.

I'm reading a few books right now, but these two are the ones commanding most of my attention. I'm reading Ghettoside as part of a readalong, and so far it's a thought-provoking and important book. Alive is a thriller that is really, really hard to put down once you've started - it's 100 miles an hour from the first page, so don't start reading it if you've got anything important to do!

Up next:

I'm super excited to get started on this book - I've heard mixed reports, but I'm determined to maintain my excitement anyway!

That's it for my week in books - what have you guys been reading?

  1. I'm not going to say anything about Armada, so you can keep your excitement level high. With that being said, you maaaay want to steer clear of my blog for at least one day next week. Errrp.

  2. I love stories about animals. I usually enjoy them more than books about people. BUT! They always make me cry. Having said that, I think I’ll definitely be on the look out for Free Days With George - it sounds so nice.

    1. I'm the same way!! I made sure this one wasn't sad before agreeing to read it. It was such a heartwarming read, and one that's so easy to get into and want to keep reading! Highly recommend it.

  3. I hope you enjoy Armada (so many people love it!) and I would love to read your thoughts on Alive because so many people hauled it recently, but haven't read it yet. Glad you're enjoying it.

    1. I'm about 60% of the way through Armada and I'm actually loving it so far. It's got a tone and sense of humour that really appeal to me, and the plot is moving at a good pace. I finished Alive and am working on my review for it. It's a tough one - it had about as many positive points as negative. I'm glad I read it, but I don't know if it quite pulled me in enough for me to want to read the rest of the series. It's got a sort of dystopian/sci-fi feel going on, which I liked, but some of the internal dialogue of the main character got repetitive and took me out of the story a bit. I think if it sounds like your kind of story, read it, but if it's a bit outside of your comfort zone or what you normally like reading, you might have a harder time with it.
