My Week in Books

Welcome to my weekly Saturday feature here at Erin Reads, where I highlight new books that have entered my life, what I’ve been reading, and what’s happened on Erin Reads over the past week.

New Acquisitions

No vlog again this week, as my only new acquisition was a copy of Animal Farm by George Orwell for May’s Reading Buddies. (Want to join me??) I do have some exciting books theoretically on their way to me (or soon to be!), so hopefully I’ll be back to vlogging soon!

TBR Additions

Just one this week: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. I’m always looking for good audiobooks, so I’m taking Mary’s advice and adding this one to my list. I had no idea it was about Hemingway!

Read This Week

It’s been a satisfying reading week. I finished The Hill of Devi by E.M. Forster for my classics project, The Corrections for Reading Buddies, and Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness. Getting those three off my plate has freed up my time for Miss New India by Bharati Mukherjee, which I’m half way through and really enjoying so far!

On audio, I’m most of the way through Bodily Harm by Margaret Atwood. It’s not one of my favorites of hers, but that doesn’t mean much as I’ve yet to encounter a book by Atwood I haven’t liked quite a bit.

  1. Let me know if you listen to The Paris Wife. As I mentioned in my review, the narrator is a bit dry but as I think about that now I wonder if she wasn’t attempting to convey the main characters’ midwestern-ness with the rather dry, flat voices she gave them. I guess it’s a possibility. I’m still pretty new to audiobooks so in a year or so I may have another opinion.

    1. I will, Mary! I have a long line of audiobooks to get through, but I do hope to get to The Paris Wife eventually.
