Reading Plan #19

OMG OMG OMG! It has been ages since I did a Reading Plan post. Well it has been two week. But oh boy the past week has been hectic. Ok so I have moved back to Uni and, in the UK, everyone, other than first years, live in privately rented accommodation. That is houses/flats not owned by the university; you have a landlord, you pay bills e.t.c. So I moved in on the 24th September but we are without broadband until the 10th October. I am currently using up my mobile data to write this post. All my other posts have been written and scheduled using the wonders that is the Uni library.

So not only was I moving in two weeks ago but then my first week of second year was last week. It was also one of my busiest weeks for the blog that I have had so far. I thought it wouldn't be a problem. Internet at home, it would all be good. Stupid Internet providers. It is something to do with the previous tenant's contract. Anyway I managed to get all my posts up so yay! Hopefully things will calm down a bit now.

On the Blog Last Two Weeks

 See what I mean by busy. That many posts in two weeks. I am exhausted. Thankfully work hasn't really piled up ... yet. I can put up more Banned Books I Enjoyed. I have a few more. Just ask if you want me to write them.

What I Have Just Finished 

 Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr
 I went into this book with a few trepidations. It wasn't get the best set of reviews in the world plus it is written by Melissa Marr, who didn't wow me with her debut novel Wicked Lovely. 

My trepidations were unfounded. I loved this book! I read most of it in a coffee shop. My coffee got cold. I couldn't stop reading. 

Currently Reading

The Truth About Faking by Leigh T. Moore

I have been reading so many contemporaries recently that maybe it isn't the best of ideas to read this book now. But I did tell the author I would try and read her book soon. We will see. If I start getting fed up because I am not in the mood for a contemporary, I will stop and get back to it. I don't want to give the author a negative review just because I wasn't in the mood for her book.

To Read Next

Shade (Shade #1) by Jeri Smith-Ready

I have had my eye on this series for ages but I have just never got round to reading it until now. I hope it lives up to my expectations. If it is really good I am easily read the sequels. The benefits all the books being released.

How has your week in the world of books been?



  1. Nice! I keep debating about reading Melissa's newest book. I wasn't that impressed with Jeri's series though. It was all right, but I just wasn't wowed. Hope you enjoy all your read though!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. Love the layout of this post! We have a lot of similiar posts!
    Dw broadband always takes forever to sort out in second year- it's annoying isn't it :)
    I love the sound of The Truth about Faking It- I'm currently on a contemporary binge but I understand what you mean with getting fed up! I always read a couple of chapters and if I feel like I'm forcing myself to read it I put it down :)
    Have a lovely week!

  3. I felt the same way about Carnival of Souls. Marr's Wicked Lovely series has never really impressed me, but I really enjoyed this one. I hope you liked Shade! I thought it was a great read. :)

  4. Carnival of Souls looks amazing! I enjoyed the Wicked Lovely series...but I was a lot younger when I read it. I don't think that I'd enjoy it as much now...but definitely adding it to my to-read list!

    If you'd like to stop by, here's what I'm reading this week.


  5. Carnival of Souls is on my TBR list! Can't wait to get to it! :D


I read and appreciate every comment that I receive. Thank you :D
