What have you been reading this week?
What a week it’s been. The weather has cooled off but that hasn’t encouraged me to read more. I also haven’t felt much like posting to Instagram. I’m just getting a bit weary of it all. I regularly see people on their telling everyone to stop moaning about reels because it’s the only way to grow your account and get more business. I understand that but not everyone on social media is trying to get a bigger following or sell things. What about the people who just want to connect with like-minded people? This is just more proof that Instagram is more about profit and marketing than anything else.

- BOOK REVIEW – Heartstopper Volumes 3 and 4 by Alice Oseman
Netflix aren’t known for producing great quality action movies. Most of the time they spend a lot of money on something that just feels messy and loud. However, I’m always up for watching Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling, so why not? Check out my review to find out if Netflix finally broke the pattern.
- BOOK REVIEW – The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
This isn’t my normal kind of book but it’s one of those books that’s been everywhere. When I found a copy at my local charity bookshop, I knew I had to get it. But would I be able to get through it? Check out my review to see how I found it.
- BOOK REVIEW – Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown
This was meant to be our book club pick for Pride but we ended up having to push the meeting back a bit. I was really looking forward to reading this because it sounded so much fun. It’s also an important piece of LGBTQ+ literature. Read my review to see if it lived up.
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I borrowed this from the library the other week and started listening to it at work. It’s one of those books that everyone has been raving about for years but I never cared. When it was available, I decided to give it a chance.
- The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton
Okay, strictly speaking I’ve not done much reading this week but I’m still planning on getting further with this today.
My pre-ordered copy of Six Crimson Cranes turned up this week but, technically, I bought that ages ago. Does it count? Yeah but let’s pretend it doesn’t.
- RuPaul’s Drag Race – Skipped straight to season 10. I had to watch the infamous Miss Vanjie episode.
One thought on “Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read”
I agree with you about just wanting to connect with like-minded people on Instagram. I haven’t geared my Instagram account toward books yet, and I’m not sure I totally want to do that because what you mentioned. I feel like I’m reaching some great bookish people between my new blog and Goodreads. I hope your week is off to a great start! I look forward to seeing more reviews.
