Weekly Check-In

Hey there!
Welcome to another weekly update for my blog! In today’s post I am going to share with you about the books that I am reading this week, what books I have finished since the last update as well as which books I am looking at reading next!

Reading This Week:

Suddenly One Summer by Fleur McDonald: This one was sent to me from the publisher, it is a book by an Australian Author and I am really enjoying the story so far, I am intrigued to see where it goes. Currently sitting at 36% on this one.
Goodreads | Amazon

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: This book is one that I own, I am reading it for the Beat the Backlist Challenge, which I am not doing as well with as I hoped..but it is still early in the year so I can fix that. This one is going well, it is a little odd character-wise, but I am into it and need to know what is going to happen! Currently at 32% for this one.
Goodreads | Amazon

The Never Dawn by R. E. Palmer: This is an ebook that was sent to me from the author for review. I am still sitting at 50% I haven’t managed to pick it up since my last check in post, its not looking good to get it done soon, but I am still a little optimistic. I’m just not feeling it too much..
Goodreads | Amazon

Vanishing Girls by Lisa Regan: This book I got from Netgalley for review. I am only 18% into it but I am hooked so far, need to know what was in the woods..
Goodreads | Amazon

Recently Read & Reviewed:

I have only finished & reviewed one book since my last check-in (slack, I know..) and that was:

34659431

While You Were Sleeping by Kathryn Croft (Audiobook): I absolutely adored this book! It was my first by this author, and I will definitely be picking up more in the future. It shocked me right at the end, and that is exactly what you want from a mystery/thriller. Check out my review here.
Goodreads | Amazon/Audible

Reading Challenges Update:

2018 goodreadsI am currently on 8 books for this challenge..which is one book behind schedule..

library loveI am sitting on 2 books for this challenge, which is a very poor performance!

2018 audiobook challengeI am on 3 books for this challenge, which it not too bad I guess..

Weekly Check-In

Hi Bookworms!
Welcome to another week here on booksarelove 🙂 I know that I have been really slack with these posts, but it is a new week and I am going to do my best to keep on track (even though I am buried in uni work..)
This week I have done a bit of reading, but as usual, not as much as I would like. Keep reading to see how I have been doing!

Currently Reading This Week:

While You Were Sleeping by Katherine Croft: This one I am listening to on Audible, and I am 14% in so far, and I am LOVING it. I want to know how you can wake up to someone who has been murdered and a) be okay, and b) not have a clue what happened?? I am hoping that it continues and ends amazingly! Will keep you in the loop!

The Never Dawn by R. E. Palmer: This one I received from the author in exchange for review, I am half way through, but I am struggling to get into it..so far it is a bit drawn out but I am hoping it gets to the point soon!

Finished & Reviewed Last Week:

He Will Be My Ruin by K. A. Tucker: This was an audiobook that I had through Audible, and I absolutely loved it. I was hooked from beginning to end, and I was completely shocked by the ending, which is something that I love about this genre when it is done well. Click here to read my review of He Will Be My Ruin.

Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris: This one may have taken me a while to read, but it was only because I was stupidly busy with university and didn’t get to spend much time with it. Having said that, when I did get a chance to read it, I devoured the pages. I absolutely loved this one the entire way through! Click here to read my review of Behind Closed Doors

Still to Begin This Month:

I know that there is not much of this month left, but I am SERIOUSLY behind in my TBR for the year. The three above books are technically from the month of February and I never got a chance to start them. But I am hoping that I am going to get a chance to at lease pick them up this week!

Reading Challenges Update:

2018 goodreads For the 2018 Goodreads Challenge I am currently sitting at 7 books (which puts me one book behind where I should be, according to Goodreads).

library love

For the 2018 Library Love Challenge, I am sitting at 2 books. This is definitely not ideal! I will be fixing this as soon as I can!

2018 audiobook challengeI am currently sitting at 2 books for the 2018 Audiobooks challenge, again this is terrible and I will be fixing this!

 

 

Thank you for stopping by to have a look at my weekly check-in. How are you all going with your reading goals? What are you reading this week? What have you recently finished reading? I would love to hear all about it!

Until next time, happy reading!

What’s On | The Coming Week

Hey bookworms!
In this post I am going to share with you my reading plans for the coming week 🙂

Still Reading/Listening To:

 

Going To Start:

never never

Never Never by James Patterson & Candice Fox: If you saw my January Library Book Haul post, you will know that this was one of the many extra books I picked up this month. If you didn’t catch the post and are interested, you can check it out here. You may also have seen that this book has been on my TBR for a long time, therefore I thought it was time that I read it!

_____________________________________________________________________________

I am hoping to have some of these books finished this week for review, as the month is coming to an end shortly (already) and I don’t want to carry any over into February.
What books are you all reading this week?? I would love to hear about them in the comment box below!

Until next time, happy reading!

Weekly Catch-Up | 8th – 14th January

Hey there bookworms!
I know it is Monday, and I usually have this posted on a Sunday, but I have been beyond busy and it completely slipped my mind, so I am going to do this post and then my week ahead post back to back 🙂

Reading This Week:

Keep Her Safe by Richard Parker: This one I began reading this week, and I am currently 33% done, and I am loving it. I received this one through Netgalley, so keep an eye out for my review very soon!

The Chemist (Audiobook) by Stephanie Meyer: I am currently 48% through this one and I need to know what happens to these characters!

Fractured by Dawn Barker: I am in love with this book that I picked up for the Beat the Backlist Challenge. I am sitting at 32% so still have a fair way to go, but I don’t think it will take me too much longer!

Finished/Did Not Finish Reading This Week: 

The Dressmaker

I tried so hard to finish this book, but I had to add it to the DNF pile unfortunately. I just could not get into the story, or connect with any of the characters. I really wanted to love this one, but just didn’t get there.

___________________________________________________________________________

What did you all get up to this week?? I would love to hear all about it in the comments below!
Until next time, happy reading!
