My Bookish Week 01/11/20

I spent this week with a sick kiddo so not too much reading was done. I finished one more book though and started two others.

This week I finished reading

2. That Which You Are Seeking is Causing You to Seek by Cheri Huber ✰3✰ I will be using this book for the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge for reading a book that was published in your birthday month. Goodreads says it was published on Feb 1, 1990. This is also a Jason book*

This week I continued reading

It’s Ok That You’re Not OK by Megan Devine (page 165/241)

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire (page 209/523)

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (page 39/1468)

Fool Moon by Jim Butcher (page 88/342)

Grieving: A Love Story by Ruth Coughlin (page 72/173)

This week I started reading

Often I am Happy by Jens Christian Grondahl (page 79/167)

Gwendy’s Magic Feather by Richard Chizmar (page 37/323)

This week I acquired

3. Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter This was a gift

Next week I hope to pick up

Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

I Love My Love by Reyna Biddy

I have plans to finish between 3 and 6 of the books I’m reading this week, depending on how the kiddo is feeling and how much time I end up with for reading.

*A Jason book is a book owned by my late husband before I met him or a book he talked about often through our 9 year marriage

    1. I don’t think this is really an easy read. I’ve been working on it for a couple of months at this point. It is slow going compared to other books on grief I’ve read, but it has a lot of practical advice and techniques that I’ve been able to put to use already that are helping both myself and Pepper. I would say it’s definitely worth a read if you can put the effort in to it.

      Otherwise, some easier to read books that have also been very helpful are Grief Day by Day by Jan Warner (this is always my top recommendation) or How to Survive the Loss of a Love by Melba Colgrove (this is the easiest and fastest to read).

      Next Thrusday I have an updated list of books on grief, widowhood, and death that I’ve read with my ratings and links to Goodreads as well as the rest of the books I own on those subjects that I plan to read this year.
