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.
It’s been a rather slow acquisition week. I did receive a copy of Mr. Chartwell by Rebecca Hunt through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers program, but I didn’t feel a single book warranted a vlog! I do love the book’s cover, and even though I’ve been reading mixed reviews, the premise intrigues me enough that I’m looking forward to reading it.
I was away last weekend and had a final on Thursday, which means I’ve been very out of the book blog loop. Did I miss your review of a book I must add to my TBR list? Please let me know! I’d hate to miss out.
Read This Week
I haven’t started any new books this week. I’m still working on Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness, The Hill of Devi by E.M. Forster, and Miss New India by Bharati Mukherjee. I’m really enjoying all three, but my reading time has been limited and I haven’t made much progress. All my time has been focused on The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen, which I have a week to finish for Reading Buddies!
On audio, I did finish Freakonomics by Stephen J. Dubner and Steven D. Levitt, then moved on to The Imposter by Damon Galgut (read by my new favorite, Humphrey Bower!). I haven’t started a new audiobook yet. Nothing I have in the wings is really calling to me.
Erin Reads Recap
- On Monday I shared my thoughts on Nazareth, North Dakota by Tommy Zurhellen, a new title from Atticus Books that I read during the Readathon and really enjoyed.
- Wednesday’s Classics Reclamation Project post looked at my initial impressions of The Hill of Devi, E.M. Forster’s account of his time spent in India during the early twentieth century.
- Finally, yesterday, I posted the Reading Buddies wrap-up for The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. If you read along, be sure to add a link to your post so everyone can find it!
How was your reading week? Do tell!
