Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
I have recently been realizing that while I share my book reviews and ratings on my blog, my Bookstagram account is often the place where I share what I am currently reading. However, I want to change that and bring back my Weekly Reading Plans posts! I have not done one of these since 2015, and you can read that post here (it is a tad cringe worthy…).
Ever since the month of July, I have been reading a lot of books and at an incredibly fast pace. Over the past few days, I have been taking my reading very slowly and have been focusing on one long book (which you will see in just a second!), which I have been LOVING. Slowing down my reading and taking my time with the story has been so great, as I find myself thinking about the characters more and connecting with them a lot better.
The book I have been slowly reading is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Funny enough, this book was featured in a WRP post in 2014! Believe it or not, I have only ever read bits and pieces of this book over the past several years. I think when I picked this book up in 2014, I was a bit too young and did not appreciate the story or writing style as I am right now. When I picked this book up at the end of last week, I was in the mood to read a historical fiction novel – which is a genre I don’t think I’ve read from since 2015! I am so happy that I decided to pick this book up, and plan on finishing it today (Monday)!
After TBT, I plan on reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Ever since I have been on my mystery/thriller book, I have been neglecting my unread adult romance books. The last romance novel I read was Beach Read, and as of right now, that book is #2 on my Best Books of 2020 list! I have super high expectations for this novel, as everyone and their mother (including my own!!!) has read this one and absolutely adored it!
The last book I hope to read this week is The Night Swim by Megan Goldin. I pre-ordered this book back in July, and it came in the mail a few weeks ago. I love mystery/thriller novels that have a tech trope in it, and this one features a podcast! I have read some stellar reviews on this novel, and hope I love it as much as I have been loving a lot of other new mystery/thrillers lately!
Those are the books I hope to read over the next seven days! What are you reading plans for this week?
Good Night Book Owls!

So happy you’re loving The Book Thief! I read it a few years back and thought it was absolutely stunning. Hope you also enjoy The Hating Game!! Such a fun read ❤️
Thanks so much! I am really looking forward to The Hating Game! 🙂
a wise person told you that reading is not a race; you have to appreciate the characters and story development. I wonder who that was? LOL
By the way, never heard of Bookstagram; what is it? How long have you had it? Did you obtain permission to start another account from a wise individual?
