My Reading Update: October 17th, 2020


Welcome to my reading update!  I'm going to post this on a few blog hops such as Stacking The Shelves run by Team Tynga's Reviews, and Sunday Post, run by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer 

Seeing what other are reading (and finding a novel that everyone's talking about) is the reason I love looking at blog hop posts.  Please feel free to drop me a line and tell me what you're reading.


It's been a long time since I've posted a reading update!  During these strange times, I've been doing tons of reading, but blogging has not been as joyful.  But I do want to share some of the wonderful books I've read recently.


What I'm Reading Now:

I like to read about three books at a time, Love Your Life is an ARC from one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella, A Witch in Time, by Constance Sayers, is for my book club, as is The Vanishing Half, by Brit Bennett.  I'm enjoying all three, but Love Your Life is a nice light read, so is a perfect distraction from all the drama going on in the U.S.

What I Finished This Week:

I powered through a lot of books in the past week!  I loved them all with the exception of Jingle All The Way, by Debbie Macomber.  This is the first time I've read any of her books.  I guess they really aren't for me.  If you loved the Illuminae series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, you will LOVE Momento.  but prepare yourself for epic heartbreak!  I'll be writing reviews of Among The Beasts & Briars, and Winter White and Wicked soon.  Look for them in the coming week.

New Books on my Shelves:


These are a few of the books I've bought or received in the last week.  I'm most excited to read The Invisible Life of Addie Larue, by V.E. Schwab.  

That's it for this week.   
Please start looking at your ballots and VOTE!!!

  1. Great book on your shelves! Both the ones you've already read, the ones you're reading and the new books look like I'd enjoy them. I think I need to pick up Memento... even if it'll break my heart ;)
    Have a wonderful weekend, and a great week ahead.

  2. The invisible life of Addie LaRue does seem so good and it's already on my TBR.

    I also mostly read 3 books at the same time. One on the kindle, one paperback/hardcover and one audio.

    Hope you will have a good week and thanks for sharing your books with us!

    Here's my latest post: The Sunday Post #15

  3. I love Sophie Kinsella, I'm happy to hear you seem to like her new book! I'm excited to read it as well! I recently got The Vanishing Half and I'm looking forward to start it when I have a bit more time to spare.

    1. I'm enjoying the silliness of Love Your Life (just what I need right now!). Thanks for stopping by.

  4. The Vanishing Half is also on my never ending TBR. I hope I get to it soon. Stay safe and Stay in!

    1. I'm listening to the audiobook version. It's good, but this book is a slow burn. it takes a long time for things to get going. I am about half way done. I hope there is a satisfying payoff at the end.

  5. I am looking forward to The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue too. It sounds very promising but the price is keeping me from getting it at the moment *smile* Happy reading Ardis and stay safe and well.

  6. Love your life sounds great. Glad your TBR is filling up. And sophie kinsella is wonderful. I've listened to everyone of of her novels and look forward to more. this is my first time to your blog @theglobaldig.blogspot.com

    1. Hi Trin! I'm enjoying Love Your Life. It's pretty escapist, such a good thing right now.

  7. I always read a handful of books at the same time too. I need to get Sophie Kinsella's newest. I loved her so much when I was younger but have started to feel her Books are more hit or miss lately (I've heard this one is pretty fun). Happy reading!

    1. The Sophie Kinsella book is a lot of fun. If you've enjoyed her books in the past, then you are sure to love this one.

  8. Thanks for sharing your recent favourite reads

    Wishing you a great reading week ahead

  9. Thank you Shellyrea. I hope you have fun reading this week, too!
