Sunday Stacks Week Six

I had a really great reading week last week with my readathon! I ended up reading eight books for a total of 2,813 pages and that’s way more than I was expecting to do. Here’s a look at the TBR I set for myself last week, whether or not I completed it, and what I’m hoping to read this week!

I was expecting great things from Birthday and Meredith Russo definitely did not disappoint. This was a surprisingly fast read but that did not take away from any of the emotion these pages contained. Russo is an author that I will read anything they write. Make sure you come back tomorrow to read my full review of this incredible novel.

Want to Read That Roundup: The Sequel

Back in February I was inspired by Emily from Midwestern Book Nerd to share some of my recent additions to my want to read shelf on Goodreads. It was a fun post to do, and since it’s been a bit since the last one, I thought I’d do it again! Last time I shared the last ten additions, but this time I’ll be sharing the last five.

Middle grade graphic novels are some of my favorite things! I’ve been thinking about reading something by Terri Libenson, but just haven’t done it yet. When I read the description for her newest graphic novel, Just Jaime, I knew this was where I needed to start. The synopsis for this one clicked with me more than her others, so I’m hoping it will be a good place to start!

Sunday Stacks Week Five

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a Sunday Stacks. Instead, I introduced y’all to my new kitten, Noodle, and showed you what is currently on my iPhone the past two Sundays. But today I’m back with an updated weekly TBR! This week I’m actually participating in the next unexpected readathon Destiny from Howling Libraries is putting on. She does these every now and then and I love it! They really encourage me to buckle down and get a lot of reading done. Because of this I have a pretty ambitious TBR for the week.

Wow. Wow. Wow. It’s been about three weeks since I finished How it Feels to Float and I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it. Biz’s story left me breathless and aching in the best way possible. This is seriously one of my favorite books I’ve read so far this year and it’s ranked pretty high up on my list of all time faves too. This novel is an incredible examination of mental illness, friendship, and sexuality. Make sure you read my full review and find the the mini playlist I put together for the book as well.

Sunday Stacks Week Four

Happy Easter, everyone! Last year was my son’s first Easter, but this is the first Easter he hasn’t been in the hospital for! The Easter bunny brought him a Paw Patrol book, some candy, and a new Peppa Pig toothbrush, and at some point during the day he’ll hunt for eggs filled with more candy.

I did so much reading last week and got all of the book’s on my TBR read plus some others! Here are some quick thought’s on the books from last week’s TBR and what I’m hoping to read this week!

This was a buddy read I did with my friend Britt from Geronimo Reads. We Were Beautiful was such an amazing book that examines loss, grief, and guilt with my favorite found family trope! All of the characters were fantastic and I loved the amount of growth and development they each showed. This is a lesser known young adult book that I really hope more readers start picking up.

Sunday Stacks Week Three

Happy Sunday, friends! It’s been a wonderfully rainy weekend for me and I’ve loved it. Last week I didn’t do a highlight on my TBR because I wanted to make a discussion post on Trigger Warnings instead. If you missed that, it would mean a lot to me if you checked it out. It’s a topic I’m very passionate about and I put a lot work into the post.

Even thought I had two weeks to complete the last Sunday Stacks TBR, I’m proud that I got it done! I went through a reading slump at the beginning of the month and wasn’t really able to stay focused on any books I picked up. Thankfully I think I’m finally out of it so I’m looking forward to reading all the books this week!

It broke my heart, but I ended up DNFing Amelia Westlake Was Never Here at page 139 due to problematic content. I was so looking forward to this one and it just wasn’t good for me. At this point it’s definitely the most disappointing book I’ve read of 2019. I have a full review coming April 22.

Sunday Stacks Week Two

I’ve decided to turn Sunday Stacks into a weeklyish post! I may skip a week every now and then, but I really enjoyed sharing my TBR with y’all last week, so I want to continue doing it! First I’ll recap the previous week’s TBR, let you know which books I finished, and then I’ll share with you the upcoming list!

The first book I read from my TBR last week was The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried. I can tell why a lot of people love this one, but it really just wasn’t for me. It was an incredibly fast read, but the entire book is basically Dino and July arguing. Confrontation and arguments like that give me a lot of anxiety, so I wasn’t a huge fan.

Sunday Stacks: The Upcoming Week’s TBR

I hope everybody is enjoying a relaxing Sunday before having to start another week! Being a mood reader like I am can make having an official TBR difficult, but ever since I got a book cart it’s become a lot more doable! I’m a very visual person, so being able to put my physical review books and other books I’m wanting to read soon on the cart in a prominent spot has helped me stay focused.

Today I’ll be sharing with you three books that I’m planning on reading this next week. Odds are I’ll read more than three books, but I like to try and set realistic goals, otherwise I’ll end up overwhelmed and won’t finish anything. It also makes me feel less bad in the event that a reading slump hits. Thanks to Harker for the post idea!
