What are you currently reading?

I am still listening to Amy Poehler’s Yes Please. I’m still enjoying it, I just usually only listen to it on the weekend which is why it’s taken me a bit longer to read. It’s great though. This morning, I started reading I Am Malala. I have been wanting to read this book for a while as I think she is such an incredibly important role model, especially to young girls. I only read the first couple of chapters this morning but I’m looking forward to learning more about her!

Yes Please   I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

What did you recently finish reading?

I didn’t post my update last week, so it feels like I read some of these a while ago but these are the books I have finished since my last post. I finished The Silver Linings Playbook and while I thought it was good, I think I prefer the movie. I liked how they brought in the gambling problem of his father in the film and I think the performances by Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are fantastic. I also finished readiing the super fantastic Six of Crows and I am SO glad that it lived up to the huge amount of hype I had seen. I went in with super high expectations and I was not disappointed. Full review to come but I really loved this – thanks to all those who suggested it as my next read! I also finished reading my arc of Flawed by Cecilia Ahern. It was certainly an interesting concept and I liked the book, but I didn’t love it like I do other books. I will probably read the sequel when it comes out to see what happens next. There were certainly some incredible parts but there were also some very boring chapters too.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve said this for a few weeks, but next up is DEFINITELY The Night Circus as I’ve had so many positive comments about it and I’m looking forward to the beautiful writing I’ve seen people raving about.

  1. I think I’ve got The Night Circus on my TBR list but I’ll need to double check! I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.
    Six of Crows is waiting its turn at home in my very physical TBR pile. I’m a bit worried that all the hype has given me unrealistic expectations as well, but I’m glad to hear that wasn’t the case for you!
    Flawed is on my Goodreads list, too 🙂

  2. So glad you liked Six of Crows! I’ve had to put it to the side for now, but when I return to it, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. I’ve read I Am Malala and really liked it. Hopefully you’ll like it too. It is powerful. I actually got The Night Circus, but I haven’t started reading it yet. So many books to read! 🙂 Happy reading!

  3. Six Of Crows, yess!! One of my favorite reads last year, I’m glad you enjoyed it as well. I have been looking forward to get a copy of both Yes, Please and I Am Malala for a long time now; they both sound like really interesting reads. I might get an audiobook for Yes, Please because listening to it in her own voice sounds great.

    I hope you will enjoy The Night Circus! I really loved the descriptions and enjoyed reading it, even though the pace is a bit slow sometimes.

    • Thanks, I’m looking forward to The Night Circus. I’ve heard a lot about how beautifully written it is. Six of Crows is fantastic, I can’t wait for the sequel! I would definitely recommend listening to the audiobook for Yes Please. It definitely adds to the experience and she has a few guest readers too 🙂

  5. Great list! Everyone loves The Night Circus but I didn’t get the appeal of it. I found it incredibly boring 😂. But I hope you enjoy it!
    I can’t wait to read Six of Crows but I think I’m gonna save it for a bit until the second one comes out.

  6. You’re the only other person I know who has read Silver Linings and seen the movie. I agree – the movie is better. I’ve seen it three times and would see it again, but I don’t think I’d read the book again.
    I’m so glad you enjoyed Six of Crows so much. It took a while to get going but once it did it was fantastic. I have high hopes for the sequel.

    I hope you enjoy The Night Circus. The writing is beautiful and it’s worth reading for the descriptions of the circus which I think I’ll remember for the rest of my life. It lost points from me for not being very reader friendly!

    Thank you for visiting my post earlier and for the copy of Glass Sword (I will be expressing rambling thanks for a while)!

    • I don’t think I would read the book again either, but I really like the movie!
      Six of Crows did not disappoint me at all. I really loved the characters as well as the plot and the world. I haven’t read the Grisha trilogy but I didn’t find that to be a problem. I can’t wait for Crooked Kingdom – the cover is also gorgeous!!
      I’ve heard so much about how beautifully written The Night Circus is. I have high hopes for it so I hope I won’t be disappointed!
      You are very welcome! I just hope you’ll enjoy it! 🙂
