Not too much reading happened this week because I was busy for my birthday. If you missed my special birthday post you should definitely read it because it includes a lot of my friends and was really fun to do!
Here’s a look at how I did with my TBR from last week and what I’m hoping to read this week!
After reading a bit of The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth I was really worried that I wouldn’t enjoy it. There is not a lot of dialogue, the chapters are incredibly lengthy, and the pacing is very slow – all of which typically add up to me disliking a book. Something about Cameron is so compelling though and I’m loving her story. It’s a very heavy book that is making me feel a great bit of emotion, so it’s taking me a while to read it. I’m really only reading a chapter or two, maybe three, each day. So far I’m about halfway through it and I really am so glad I finally listened to Arin from Tomes of Our Lives and gave this book a chance.
I’m currently 39% into Have a Little Faith in Me by Sonia Hartl and it is so good. Like…whoa. The humor is amazing and the main character, CeCe, is challenging societal norms in the best way. There are so many quotes that I’m making notes of. This is a really special book and I’m looking forward to writing a review and sharing it with you all.
It has been killing me to wait to read The Liar’s Daughter by Megan Cooley Peterson but I’ve just had too many books with release dates before it that I needed to get through. This is definitely one of my top five most anticipated releases this year. I don’t care what responsibilities I have to neglect this week – this book is being read.
(That’s a lie we have doctor appointments every day this week and I swear I won’t skip them just to read.)
Six Goodbyes We Never Said by Candace Ganger is probably going to rip my heart out and I am 100% ready and here for it. Candace is such an incredible and inspiring person. This is an #ownvoices novel and “every disorder, every weird tic, and every oddity between Naima and Dew? All me. They’re/I’m awkward AF and it’s the best. And the worst.” That statement, combined with the fact that I adored The Inevitable Collision of Birdie and Bash, has completely sold me on this novel.
Also, if you didn’t see, I made a really exciting announcement a couple days ago! Learn more about the mental health event, Shattering Stigmas, that I’m co-hosting and consider participating!
