Reading Wrap-Up (August 10, 2020) #IMWAYR

Hi all on this sultry, hot Monday! I was fully intending on writing a reading wrap-up on my computer, but then I somehow crashed it. Thank God I have my phone. I’m not sure I can do this right on my phone though, as I haven’t used it for blogging in a long while and somehow my keyboard keeps inserting commas and a’s at random places. Anyway, I’m trying. As usual, I’m joining in with #IMWAYR. I’m also joining in with ReaderBuzz’s Sunday Salon.

Life Update

Well, other than it being soaring hot out here, what do I share? Okay, my mother-in-law visited me today. (For readers visiting from the link-ups, I don’t live with my husband, as I live in a care facility.) We went for a short walk, then had ice cream and later a coffee. It was fun.

What I’m Currently Reading

I’m 77% done with Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott. I really wanted to finish it today and maybe I will. Just not in time for this blog post. Oh, I guess I won’t finish it today after all, as with my having taken an hour to write this blog post, it’s already 10PM.

What I Recently Finished Reading

I finished only one book this week: Heroine by Mindy McGinnis. I already finished it on Thursday and, like I said, fully intended on finishing more, but the heat got in the way. That’s why I didn’t write a review till yesterday.

What I Think I’ll Be Reading Next

There are a couple of new foster care memoirs out. One is called Let Me Go by Casey Watson and the other is Groomed to Be a Bride by Maggie Hartley. However, I’ve resolved not to buy more books this month, because I’m trying to save some money. That being said, I did download a middle grade novel called Far From Fair by Elana K. Arnold off Bookshare. I might read that one, although I still have many more books that I could be reading.

What have you been reading?

  1. I hit send before I finished writing my comment, as my phone slipped.
    As I was saying, I have been reading a book on The Peak District. The next book will be called Mysterious Britain. Places around Britain.

    I not long finished reading a book on my local area, which is past history of the area, from many years ago.

    Then I will read a book written by Tom Hanks, called Uncommon Type. A mixture if different short stories, which I didn’t know he did, until learning from another blogger who herself didn’t know Tom Hanks had written stories. So I am looking forward to that.

  2. I bet you enjoyed the visit. Whenever I see people, even if it just someone stopping on the street, I feel happier. I think I really appreciate blogging now more than ever. It’s a way to connect with others.

    I’m glad the library has opened back up here for curbside service. It was difficult for me to find books to read here at home. I try not to buy books either.

    You did a great job writing this post on your phone.

    Have a good week! Happy you came to Sunday Salon.

  3. Sounds like you’ve been reading a lot of very interesting books lately. 🙂 Oh I didn’t even know the Casey Watson and Maggie Hartley books were out already. But now that I know, I’ve already bought both of them. Yep, I may not be a spendthrift in general but I’m terrible at saving on books. 😀
