This has been a relatively easy week for me, i’ve only been at work for three days this week, which is probably how i’ve managed to finish a total of 4 books so far. I’m currently 65% of the way through ‘On the Come Up’ (and absolutely loving it so far!!) but i’m hoping to get that one finished this evening leaving me free to pick up some new books for the weekend.
One that i’m definitely planning to pick up is ‘Between the World and Me’ which I have had sitting on my TBR shelf for far too long. I’ve owned this book for a couple of years now but for some reason haven’t read it despite only having heard brilliant things. This year i’m desperately trying to read more of my owned, physical books and I thought as it’s Black History Month currently that it would be the perfect time to pick up this one.
I am not typically a poetry reader, but last year the cover for Danez Smith’s collection ‘Don’t Call Me Dead’ caught my attention and after reading some rave reviews I brought it. However, I still haven’t got round to reading any of it yet so i’m hoping that over this weekend I can work my way through some of the poems inside.
Lastly, just this morning I was approved for an ARC of Peter Swanson’s newest release ‘Before She Knew Him’ which I cannot wait to get started on so I have a feeling a good chunk of this weekend will be spent diving into that one. I’ve actually only read one of Swanson’s previous works, ‘The Kind Worth Killing’, but it was one that I really enjoyed and have desperately been meaning to get my hands on more of his work ever since so i’m excited to get started on this one.
Here’s hoping it’s a good weekend full of plenty of spare time for reading!
