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

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.

TBR Additions

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.

  1. I so wussed out on The Corrections readalong. I was all set, and then I realized I had four review books to read, plus two readalong books, in two weeks. That sort of pressure makes me twitch. 🙂

    1. What? You didn’t put The Corrections above all your other reading?? 😛 I get twitchy under too much pressure too, so I understand. The Corrections definitely isn’t light reading, in terms of content or length! Also, I didn’t love it, so I won’t even try to persuade you to read it on your own.

    1. Yay, good to hear! I’m looking forward to it, just as soon as I get caught up with everything else (ha ha…)!
