Collective Book Haul

Collective Book Haul

 

I haven’t done a book haul since January but that doesn’t mean I haven’t bought any books because I have and there are a few to get through. So, let’s get straight into the haul.

I have linked titles to goodreads for you, so if you want to know more it is just a click away. 🙂

The Past by Tessa Hadley 

  • I love books about family dynamics and The Past is about three sisters and a brother who meet up at their grandparent’s place to spend the summer and to decide if they are going to keep it or sell. The house brings childhood memories to the surface of a time they stayed there after their mother left their father.

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! It’s fun and easy to participate all you have to do is answer the following 3 questions.

 

What are you currently reading?

I am still currently reading The Pursuit of Pearls by Jane Thynne and I am on page 195 of 485. I have to say it is slow going and not quite the page-turner I was expecting. My current audiobook is The Truth According To Us by Annie Barrows I just started this while on my way to work and can’t really tell you my opinion so far.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished reading A Wrinkle in Time on the weekend and it was a nice easy read. I found the concept of a wrinkle in time interesting but it won’t be a favourite. I felt it was missing something. I finished listening to Fast Food Genocide: How Processed Food is Killing Us And What We Can Do About It by Joel Fuhrman, M.D. I am a health nut so I found this to be a great read. It is terrible what corporations can get away with and it does feel like they are killing us slowly for greed.

Top Ten Tuesday// Books That Take Place in Another Country

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Today’s prompt is books that take place in another country. I love reading books set in other countries. It is always fascinating to read about a different culture and learn something new. I have selected a few of my favourite books that are set in another country that isn’t Canada. I have also chosen a few books that I haven’t read yet but plan on reading soon. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday// Books That Take Place in Another Country”

I finished listening to Her Evey Fear by Peter Swanson and really enjoyed this creepy psychological thriller. Refuge by Dina Nayeri was an enlightening read about life as an Iranian refugee. I liked reading about the complex relationship between Nilo and her father. WWW Wednesday
