Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! What are you reading today?
Otherwise, it's been lots more unpacking, sorting, and trips to Home Depot as we settle into the house. But it's nice to be done with moving trucks and just be busy putting everything in its place now.
(On a related note, can someone please tell my husband that there is no such thing as having "too many books"?!?!?!?) :-P
Sooooo, what am I reading today?
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
Yes, this is one of my 30 before 35 books...there's nothing like a little challenge to get me motivated to read something that's been on my TBR for ages! I have been dying to read this ever since I finished Flynn's Gone Girl, and (about halfway through) I am not feeling disappointed. It's a completely different subject than Gone Girl, but still with the dark and unsettling notes that I remember from that novel. I probably won't wait long to jump into Flynn's other novel, Dark Places.
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
I was very very excited to FINALLY see this download to my Kindle at midnight on the 24th! I started King's latest over the weekend, and even though I'm not too far in yet, I am already super happy with how it picks up from The Shining. I expected a bigger time lapse between the end of The Shining and the beginning of Doctor Sleep, but Danny is actually still just a boy as the story commences.
I am taking part in the #SleepAlong (a Doctor Sleep read-along), hosted by Charlene at Cheap Thrills and Tif at Tif Talks Books. It starts TODAY and goes through October 21. If you want in, check out either of their blogs ASAP!
What will I read next?
I am excited to have an ARC of Wally Lamb's We Are Water up for review at the end of October, and I will probably get it started pretty soon. Other possibles are The Memory Palace by Mira Bartok and Me Before You by JoJo Moyes.
What's in your reading plans this week, friends?
