What I’m Reading This Weekend – August 17, 2018

Happy Friday, folks!

It’s T minus 7 days until I move from New Jersey to California. The road will be a long one and I’ll physically be homeless from then until we move into the new apartment. For now, we’re planning a road trip down to Florida, spending some time with our families, and just enjoying the rest of the east coast before leaving it for quite some time.

The moving process has been pretty exhausting. While I don’t have the biggest library ever, I do have a lot of books so I spent most of my time organizing and packing them up. I’ve got a nice little pile and my Kindle to get me through the period without my TBR.

What I’m Reading This Weekend – August 10, 2018

Welcome to the weekend, folks!

I’m sorry for not responding to comments and posting as frequently. I have reasons for all of that and that includes moving! That’s right, I’LL BE MOVING AT THE END OF THE MONTH!

My husband and I decided to make the trek from New York to Los Angeles and we’ll be residing there soon. I cannot wait!

However, this means there will be a slight slowdown on the blog. I know you all love coming here and reading what’s up in my bookish world, so I’ll try to update as much as I can. For now, it’ll be a little bit slower until we’ve moved to our new place (and set up Internet).

For now, let’s take a look at what I’ll be reading this weekend!

What I’m Reading This Weekend – July 27, 2018

Happy Friday, everyone!

I know this week has been wrought with a ton of reviews, but I feel like I’ve picked up my reading game recently. I honestly think it’s also to do with the readathon I did over the weekend. I’m just in the mood to read. I’ve got some blog posts unrelated to book reviews coming up. I just need to take the time to write them. Lol.

And this weekend is no exception. I’ve put together a great list of books to read throughout the weekend and into next week. Are any of these on your list? Will you be reading along with me?

What I’m Reading This Weekend – July 20, 2018

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’re all ready for another weekend filled with reading and possibly other things, but mostly reading. Here’s what I’ll be reading this weekend!

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover

I’m such a CoHort, so I need to pay homage to my favorite romance writer. I think to date, I’ve read four Colleen Hoover books (Ugly Love, Confess, November 9, and It Ends With Us), so this will make it book number five. Here’s what it’s about:

38926487Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

It’s finally time for me to read this book instead of telling everyone that I had. I wanted to really catch up on my Fantasy series this summer and I need to finally bite the bullet and do it. So I’m starting with an oldie that already has a movie (that failed) and a TV show (that did well, but ultimately got canceled). I’ll probably watch both after I finish it, but I need to read the first one first! Here’s some more about what’s it about:

256683When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder — much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing — not even a smear of blood — to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo

It’s also finally time for me to read some thrillers in the summer. While I definitely loved reading Carolines Kepnes’s Providence, I decided to take the advice of Abby from @crimebythebook and read The Snowman. While this is more crime fiction than thriller, I’m willing to try out anything that might be interesting and a good read. I think the last time I read crime fiction possibly was 2002 and I read one of Patricia Cornwall’s books for Forensics class. I hope this isn’t like those mass markets from over 10 years ago. Also, please don’t do the math on how old I am. Here’s more about the book:

9572203One night, after the first snowfall of the year, a boy named Jonas wakes up and discovers that his mother has disappeared. Only one trace of her remains: a pink scarf, his Christmas gift to her, now worn by the snowman that inexplicably appeared in their yard earlier that day.  Inspector Harry Hole suspects a link between the missing woman and a suspicious letter he’s received. The case deepens when a pattern emerges: over the past decade, eleven women have vanished—all on the day of the first snow. But this is a killer who makes his own rules . . . and he’ll break his pattern just to keep the game interesting, as he draws Harry ever closer into his twisted web. With brilliantly realized characters and hair-raising suspense, international bestselling author Jo Nesbø presents his most chilling case yet—one that will test Harry Hole to the very limits of his sanity.

What I’m Reading This Weekend – July 13, 2018

Hello everyone!

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!

x Simone
