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.

- 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.
- 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.
- The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton
It’s slow going but it is going.
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.
- 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.
