My Bookish Week 04/25/20

This week was a good one reading wise. I finally found myself able to focus for more than a few minutes at a time consistently, for the first time since quarantine took over the world. I finished four books this week and I think I only started one more, bringing my currently reading down to 11. That’s the lowest it’s been in quite a while. 

This week I finished reading

41. Princeless by Jeremy Whitley ✰4✰

42. The Grownup by Gillian Flynn ✰4✰

43. Bloody Rose by Nicholas Eames ✰4✰

44. Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine ✰3✰

Unfortunately this week I apparently went completely insane purchase wise and ended up with 23 new books. Most of those were picked up or arrived in the mail in one day. While out doing errands I purchased 12 from Dollar Tree, I picked up 4 from a free cart when I was returning long overdue books to the library, 2 were gifts from my mother, 4 came in the mail from a box I ordered to support my local bookstore, and 1 was an early mother’s day gift from Pepper. 

This week I acquired

68. The High Places by Fiona McFarlane

69. Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton

70. Summer Days and Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins

71. Madness by Zac Brewer

72. To Hold the Bridge by Garth Nix

Hopefully I can keep up with my reading this next week and my goal is to buy no books at all after this week’s fiasco in that department.
