What I’m Reading (40)

Hey all, Dani here.

I’ve read some books! Woohoo! Now I realize that overall I’ve actually read quite a few books–hence why I am a book blogger. But so far this month I’ve been feeling like I’m not really reading as much as I normally would in a month, and it has been frustrating me. But I’ve actually made some progress with books, and that makes me happy.

Anyway, welcome to my weekly post where I talk about what I’ve read in the past week, what I’m currently reading, and what I’m hoping to start reading soon. Honestly, I’m somewhat thinking about changing the title of this series of posts and expanding it a little bit. Because I want to talk about some of the other stuff I’m doing and trying in my life. So I might change it to Weekly Round-Up or something like that. If anyone wants to shout out any series title ideas, I will welcome suggestions.

For now, let’s just talk about what I’ve been reading.

Last week I talked about starting Seasons Turning by Donaya Haymond. As it turns out, I actually had a couple hours of downtime at work, so I read the whole dang book. And this was Wednesday, so I technically finished the book before my last post went live. I felt like I was in an awesome reading groove finally. And then all I managed for the next couple days was 50ish pages of Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco. Then, on Friday, I read the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald by J.K. Rowling. In the moment that I finished reading it, I was still lost in the nostalgia glow of being back in the wizarding world, but after seeing the movie on Saturday, and processing things even more, overall I’m actually a little disappointed with it. Oh, and I finally managed to finish reading Kerri Maniscalco’s latest release. So yay, I finished three books in a week. That is fantastic.


Okay, now it’s time to talk about what I’m currently reading (and loving), and that is Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. I’m about 80 pages in at the time of writing this post (aka Tuesday evening), and I have a feeling that I will finish this book pretty quickly. Oh, and I guess I’ll also mention that I’m still working my way through Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon, but I’ve only read like 10 or so pages since my last update. I think I’ll actually make it a focus to finish this before the end of the year.

As for what I’m hoping to start reading next…well, I’m not exactly sure at the moment. I may pick up The Monster of Selkirk Book Two: The Heart of the Forest by C.E. Clayton. I just learned on Goodreads that the fourth book was just released, so I have a bit of catching up to do still. But I may pick up Charmcaster by Sebastien de Castell next. I’ll just have to see what mood I’m in once I finish my current reads.

Well, I suppose that is all for now. I’ll be back soon with more bookish content.

  1. I ordered The Crimes of Grindelwald this weekend as it was 50% off and I couldn’t resist. I might use it for the short-a-thon even though it isn’t that “short”, but it’ll still be a quick read thanks to the format.
    Haven’t seen the movie yet and probably won’t for a while. I hate going to the movies if the entire thing is filled to the brim. I get way too easily distracted / annoyed by people talking and making noise during a movie and I really, really want to be able to focus on it, hah. 🙂

    Hope you get to pick up Chelscey’s book!
