What are you currently reading?
I just started If I Stay by Gayle Forman last night. It’s been sitting in my office for a few weeks since my coworker let me borrow it. I’ve been caught up in the Isla is Coming readalong and the two ARCS I wanted to review, so it’s been hanging out on my windowsill for a while. From what I’ve gathered, it’s a pretty quick read. The Lola readalong starts tomorrow, so I hope I finish If I Stay by the weekend to keep on pace with everything! So many books, too little time. I’m also so close to being done with my Since You’ve Been Gone (Morgan Matson) audiobook. I’m too cheap to buy another one so I’ll be anxiously awaiting the arrival of my next Audible credit.
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished Aspen by Rebekah Crane yesterday. That book totally exceeded my expectations. Before that, I finished my other ARC, Can’t Look Away by Donna Cooner. I expected to like that one more than Aspen, but it was a little more predictable than I was hoping. I liked that both books were really unique and featured topics and characters unlike other books I’ve ever read. I’d highly recommend them both!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Besides Lola and the Boy Next Door for the readalong, I’ll probably read Where She Went by Gayle Forman (assuming I like If I Stay!) Everyone loved it, so I’m sure I will too, but you never know. I like to try to read sequels and other books in a series right away as long as they are already released. If, for some reason I’m not a fan and decide to avoid the second book, I’ll probably dust a summery book off from my shelf.
Looking forward to your review of If I Stay! I’ve been thinking about reading it for a while. I just finished Just One Day over the weekend, and I loved it! Gayle Forman is a goddess
I have heard so much about If I Stay. A couple of my friend’s were talking about it today. I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile now, but ever since I heard it was becoming a movie I’ve been wanting to read it even more! Let me know what you think! 🙂
Definitely! So far, so good. I just read about half of the book in one sitting this morning. It’s a really quick read, which is nice. The font in the paperback is big and the “chapters” are fast.
