Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

Sunday Rundown

What have you been reading this week?

Once again I’m having to admit that I didn’t read enough this week. I’ve finished a couple of audiobooks but I’m still struggling to read physical books. I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I have to sort it out. This week, I’m planning on getting to bed earlier and reading for at least an hour. Not just to help me read. I’ve been sleeping terribly recently.

Weekly Blog Posts

  • BOOK REVIEW – Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss

I have loved the other books I’ve read by Sarah Moss, so I was looking forward to this one. Normally I end up disappointed in this situation but I was proved right this time. I cannot recommend this book enough. Check out my review to find out why I can’t stop thinking about this one.

  • BOOKISH POST – August 2022 Reading Wrap-Up

Another month ended, which meant another reading wrap-up. Anyone paying attention to my recent rundowns will know that my reading hasn’t gone well recently. So, I didn’t expect this wrap-up to very interesting. Check out my post to see how August went.

  • BOOK REVIEW Max Einstein the Genius Experiment by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

At the moment, I’m picking my books based on length alone, so this was perfect. I’m not a James Patterson fanboy but I thought this sounded fun. Good children’s fiction is always going to make my boring work days that little bit better. To find out if this helped, read my review.

Just Read

  • Max Einstein the Genius Experiment by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

I borrowed this from the library last week and listened to it at work. It sounded like a lot of fun and the kind of thing that young kids should be able to read. The focus on science and environmentalism is perfect. In the end, I didn’t think it was as good as I wanted but it would definitely be good for a younger reader.

  • Max Einstein: Rebels with a Cause by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

After listening to the first book, I decided it was only fair to listen to the second one. It was another book that I could listen to at work and it wouldn’t require much attention. Perfect for me right now.

Currently Reading

  • The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton

It’s slow going but it is going.

Book Haul

My pre-order of The Dragon’s Promise by Elizabeth Lim turned up this week. I did also buy some books this week. More than I should have. I couldn’t resist. The main two were:

  • Diary of a Void by Emi Yagi – I couldn’t resist this any more. It just sounds so good.
  • Scattered All Over the Earth by Yoko Tawada – A Japanese dystopian novel? Yes please.

Recently Watched

  • TV:
    • RuPaul’s Drag Race – Season 12 is over and I can’t carry on any more. I’ve watched season 13 quite recently so I don’t need to see it again.

  1. While I’m not an audio book guy myself, what is it about non-audio books that makes you feel you need more of them? To me, whether it is audio, paper or ebook, a book’s a book and listening or reading means you’re getting that book into your brain 😀

    Good luck with figuring the sleep thing out. That can be wicked tough, as it ends up affecting everything else in your life 😦

    1. The real issue with the physical vs audiobooks for me is that I have loads of unread physical books that I need to get through. Wouldn’t be so much of a problem if I could stop buying books but my willpower was never very strong!

      And yeah, the sleep thing sucks. I’ve just been finding it hard to switch off at the moment. I’m assuming it’s work related so am hoping it’ll calm down when we’re out of the busy period.
