Friday Reads - May 19, 2017
Oh hey. It's me again, not blogging regularly like I always intend to do! Not that you need more excuses from me, but my full-time work (you know, the stuff that pays the bills, yet keeps me from writing) is blowing up right now and likely will be most of the summer. I'm going to have to be more disciplined about writing these early so they post on time! But that's a topic for another blog post. Anyway! I've been trying to read, still. Trying is the key word, I think.
This week in books
This week was a weird one, in terms of books. I read a book for a planned review on Booknista called River: A Rock Star Romance. It was fairly light and sort of fun and I hated the girl-on-girl hate. But it wasn't bad. That review will be written soon-ish (after I finally write the review for Alice - sorry, Julie!) Then I devoured How to Make a Wish, by Ashley Herring Blake - omg, guys, that book. Tug on all of my heartstrings, why don't you! I'll be recommending that one from here until the end of time.
But after that, I had another DNF. This time it was The Football Girl by Thatcher Heldring. This book wasn't bad, per se. I just... felt like the synopsis (and cover) were vastly misleading. I thought it was going to be about a kickass girl who wanted to play football and people in her life supported her. It... wasn't. Also, she was only 14, which made the whole thing feel weird. And the writing was super boring. I don't know, I bet some people love it. It just wasn't for me.
Now I'm on to Noteworthy, by Riley Redgate. I've heard mostly good things about this one, but there have been some mixed reviews. I've only read a couple of pages so far, but I love the voice already. So hopefully I found another book to dive into during this lovely ARC May.
What are you reading this weekend?
