Recent Updates and Currently Reading | April 7

I skipped posting an update last weekend because I finally managed to spend some time down at the beach. 💙🌴🍹☀️🌊 The weather was wonderful on Saturday. On Sunday it turned really cold and rainy. I was just as happy to stay inside and read, though! Today's update is going to look extra heavy because I'm including the week before as well.

Posted Last Week(s)

Look at all those stars. 🤩

Finished Reading

A Hawk in the Woods by Carrie Laben ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ {review}

Children of Time (Children of Time #1) by Adrian Tchaikovsky - I'm still mulling over my thoughts, but I may land in the middle with this one. ⭐⭐⭐★★

The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ {review}

Finder by Suzanne Palmer ⭐⭐⭐★★ {review}

Currently Reading

The Last by Hanna Jameson - This is post-apocalyptic, and I'm loving it.

The Dark Game by Jonathan Janz - This one is a lot of fun, too.

Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen #1) by Steven Erikson - Yikes! I'm taking part in a group read of this on Instagram. I'm actually enjoying the language a lot more than I thought I would, but I have no idea what's going on in this book.

Recent Acquisitions

Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen #1) by Steven Erikson - I bought this on audio during Audible's $5 sale and then I ran into a print copy at the thrift store so I grabbed that one, too! I will totally conquer this book.

The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin - This is another book I grabbed during the Audible sale. Lilyn and I are going to buddy read it later this year if you'd like to join us.

Kings of the Wyld (The Band #1) by Nicholas Eames - Another Audible grab. I was mad that I missed the recent Kindle sale so I was happy to be able to grab the audio.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid - I've heard so many amazing things about this book so I grabbed this one during the Audible sale as well. It's outside of my normal genres so I'm hoping I can make some room for it!

Nod by Adrian Barnes - I discovered this book while watching a "favorite fantasy books" YouTube video. It turns out it's more horror than fantasy so yay! I can't wait to read it.

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson - I order Elantris because I just really want to read it!

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  1. Oh I can't wait to hit the beach! Come on summer!!

    The Last looks awesome, and I love that cover for Gardens of the Moon.

  2. Every time I visit I find more books I want to read! I have three books on the go but haven't been able to finish anything!

    1. Sorry, totally not sorry about adding to your TBR! :) I've had some trouble finishing books lately, too. The font on recent ARCs has been teeny, teeny tiny, and it's been a struggle for me.

  3. Ah yay!! I'm glad you got some beach time. I'm itching for some time by the ocean myself!

  4. Glad you were able to enjoy the beach last week. I keep hearing raves about TJR. I need to read something from her.

    1. Ha! I had to go figure out who TJR was. :) Right? I can't wait to read it. The raves have just been too good.

  5. You had a really good week! Can't wait for the weather to get even warmer so I can hit the beach too.

    ~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    1. Thanks! I will take those weeks any time they come to me. :)

  6. It was too hot during summer here to go to the beach, and the weather has been unpredictable thus far into autumn.

    Have a great reading week :)

    Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out-

    1. I'm not sure it's ever too hot for me to go to the beach. :)

  7. Yay for the beach! I had issues with Finder also. I thought it was like first book syndrome, where I just didn't get it organized in my head until about halfway through. Then I really enjoyed the last half.

    You have a lot of great looking books. Enjoy!

    Anne - Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post   

    1. I'm glad you were able to recover. It's a problem I definitely have as a reader. Once I get to a certain point, it's really, really hard for a book to redeem itself for me.

  8. Not quite beach weather for me - unless I'm wearing a few layers and holding a nice hot mug of tea. Lol! Huge selection of books - where do you find the time, Jennifer. x

    1. Ooooh. Layers and tea and the beach sounds heavenly to me. :) After work, my time is really just my family and reading. I don't watch much tv, and I don't watch many movies so I wind down with books.
