Ho ho ho!
Yes folks we have reached December and I am feeling festive. This could be because I have been super organised this year and have nearly all my Christmas presents bought (it helps that I started buying them in August) and the majority of them wrapped. Please don’t feel too envious because this isn’t how I usually do things; usually I am running around on my final payday in a mad panic.
Anywho, before I go into what I managed to read this week and indeed what I plan to read in this upcoming week I have to talk about The Fault in our Stars. I read the book last year and I was broken. Only a few books have ever managed to do this to me; A Walk to Remember and Me Before You are included in this list. This weekend, my mother and I decided to watch the movie. Oh my wow. I spent the last forty minutes a crumbling mess: tears, red face and yes the ever attractive snot bubbles. I must give kudos to the filmmakers because they stuck so very closely to the John Green book. It is absolutely stunning. If you haven’t read the book then read it, then watch the movie. Have tissues handy, you have been warned!
Back to matters at hand, my week of books. This has been a pretty good week for reading. I have read:
Waiting for Doggo by Mark B. Mills
Skating at Somerset House by Nikki Moore
Both of these have been reviewed this week. I have also read:
Yours for Eternity: A Love Story on Death Row by Damien Echols and Lorri Davis (02.12.14)
Losing Heart by Donna Brown (06.12.14)
Cold Feet at Christmas by Debbie Johnson (03.12.14)
This week I plan to read:
It Happened on Broadway by Myra Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer
The Lies We Tell Ourselves by Talli Rowland
Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
The Shape of Shit to Come by Alan McArthur and Steve Lowe
Let’s hope it is a good easy reading week.
Ooh and for those who are keeping tally on things, my NetGalley percentage is now up to 29.4% – only 0.6% until I get to 30% – whoop whoop!
Have a good reading week.
