I just got back from LA and I’m spending my day catching up on my reviews and going grocery shopping. I love grocery shopping, but it’s just a pain to go to the store, bring the food back, carry the food to the door, and then put it all in the fridge. I wish someone would just do all of that for me.
Ha, but enough about me. I’ve been doing some reading while I was in Los Angeles and I’ll be sharing those reviews with you next week. However, today isn’t about books I’ve already read. Today is about books I’ll be reading this weekend. YAY!
I love making lists of what I’ll be reading over the weekend. Even though I never stick to these lists, I wanted to share them and share some great reads you can add to your TBR. I do hope to mix it up, but for now they’re going to be newer reads since I’ve got a lot of books I’m reading. I’ll include my reasons for reading them instead of a description. You can find descriptions by clicking the title of the book.
Hope you enjoy these ones in the future!
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
- Publisher: Gallery Books, Paperback (320 pages)
- Publishing Date: September 4, 2018
When I got home from LA, I found this one sitting in my mailbox with a few others. Oh my goodness, I couldn’t be more excited about a book. After finishing Love And Other Words just a few weeks ago, I can’t believe that Christina Lauren is already out with their next read. This one isn’t out until September, but it’s not summer without a little romance so I’ll be toting this around. It won’t be my first read for the weekend, but it will probably be my second. I can hardly contain my excitement.
Everyone Knows You Go Home by Natalia Sylvester
- Publisher: Little A, Hardcover, 334 pages
- Publishing Date: March 13, 2018
This is the pick for the Words Between Worlds online book club. If you’re a bookstagrammer, you should check it out because this book starts with a wedding where the groom’s dead father makes an appearance in front of the couple. I was so shocked when I read that that I knew I have to read more. Also, I’m a little behind on my bookclub reads. June was a busy month lol.
An Ocean of Minutes by Thea Lim
- Publisher: Touchstone Books, Hardcover, 320 pages
- Publishing Date: July 10, 2018
This book just came out this week and I brought it with me to LA, so I thought I would give it a read. Silly me, I thought this book was going to be another immigrant’s story. However, it turns out to be a post-apocalyptic time travel story. I’m not a fan of time travel stories (because of the paradoxes it creates and I just harp on that the entire time), but I’m giving this one a pass because it’s unexpectedly good. I haven’t seen a lot of hype for this one, so if it’s good you know I’m going to boost it.
Still Lives by Maria Hummel
- Publisher: Counterpoint, Hardcover, 288 pages
- Publishing Date: June 5, 2018
I tried starting this one in LA. I thought because it takes place in LA that it would be nice to read. However, I put it down to read PROVIDENCE instead. I do want to give this one a shot before I have to return it to the library so I’m making it a priority for me this weekend.
The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin
- Publisher: Berkley, Hardcover, 352 pages
- Publishing Date: February 13, 2018
I honestly don’t know what to expect with this one. I’m terrible at reading synopsis before reading the book and it’s only when I try to start the book that I read what it’s about. I know, I’m weird. But this one I’ve seen on the bookstagram and saw it on the New shelf at the library. I thought why not give it a go and see what it’s about. Also, while this is “new” to the library, it’s not very new to my world. Isn’t it sad sometimes when a book that was published only a few months ago feel suddenly like old reads? Hmm…
One thought on “What I’m Reading This Weekend – July 13, 2018”
The All The Books podcast said Oceans of Minutes is great! I’m not in to time travel either but I put a hold on this at the library. I’m also pretty excited about Queen of Hearts — I’ve been insta friends with Kimmery for a while and she actually recently gave me a signed copy while she was in San Diego! Really excited to read it.
