The Sunday Snuggle Week 8 2019

Hello readers!

This was not a very productive week reading-wise, because it’s been so hectic… I’ve been working on my health by going to the gym more often and also adjusting my sleeping schedule. I was not sleeping enough or well enough, and now I’m doing much better! But that leaves fewer late-night hours for reading. Also I arrive home late and tired and still got meal-prepping and so on to do, so I assume my blogging and reading will suffer a little (I’ve been considering going to 2 posts per week, but we will see!), and that is that. I have no regrets. My life is slowly getting in the shape I want it to be. In any case, I still got quite some reading done!

From Netgalley, I got:

43346042 suddenly single carol wyer

I love the cover of How To and it actually sounds really cool! I also craved a bit of something quick and sweet, and Suddenly Single sounded perfect, so I was glad to be approved for it!

On Audible I got:

the water cure sophia mackintosh

I wanted to start this in March only, but that is a whole week away and I simply cannot survive without an audiobook. Do you guys also play audiobooks while doing random things, like working out, going to the supermarket, checking through posts?

My Readings This Last Week

the gilded wolves roshani chokshi

I finished The Gilded Wolves! Took me a while, but the book grew on me. I think the audiobook format detracted a bit from my enjoyment of it, but it was a pretty solid read and I see why lots of people are loving it! 3 stars.

the wife between us greer hendricks sarah pekkanen

I finished The Wife Between Us, which absolutely STRESSED ME OUT. If you want to be open-mouthed and in shock at the twists, pick this up! It is a great thriller, so full of twists you will NOT see coming. The audiobook was pretty good, too. 4 stars!

provenance ann leckie

I continued a bit with Provenance – it hasn’t picked up pace yet, but I’m still in the very beginning, and I’m entertained and curious to see where this goes!

everything under daisy johnson

I picked up Everything Under, which has been on my radar for months, PLUS I am absolutely in love with this cover. I love a good magical realism book, a good literary fiction, I love the way she writes, so I’m having a wonderful time with this book so far! A little gem of atmospheric, poetic prose with a story that sucks you right in.

  1. Yay for you getting more sleep, honestly that makes so much of a difference! Hopefully as you adjust to your new sleeping schedule you will be able to get some more reading in! I have heard similar things about the audiobook of TGW, sorry it didn’t work so much for you but I am glad it grew on you.
