Weekly Wednesday Update #73

Untitled

 Hello fellow bookworms and welcome to another Weekly Wednesday Update! I know I haven’t been amazing at updating my blog recently but I have been eating sleeping and breathing uni work, but the project has almost come to a close. I hand in next Thursday (hooray) and I then have a week off so I can catch up on my reviews and stuff, but for now, here’s the weekly update!

Currently Reading:

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (JK Rowling)

I really needed to visit Hogwarts again!

The Beautiful Dead by Belinda Bauer

Doctor Vanilla’s Sunflowers by Bethany Cadman

Upcoming Reviews/Posts

I have quite a few book reviews to write, I think it’s 3, which are the Confessions books by James Patterson, so I will get round to reviewing those really soon!

The Unbookish Updates

Loads of my favourite TV shows are back, like Grey’s Anatomy and Dave Gorman’s Modern Life is Goodish, so I have plenty to keep me going while I’m working, but it’s a bit frustrating when I am so consumed by work that I don’t get as much reading done as I like, but TV shows keep me entertained just as well. I’ve also started trying to listen to podcasts, which is proving quite good as well. Once my first second year project for uni is complete, I will try and remember post a link in an update post s you can also see what I’ve been working on (ps, it’s Harry Potter related!)

Hello fellow bookworms and welcome to another Weekly Wednesday Update! I haven’t really been adding a lot to my TBR recently, hence the lack of posting, but I thought I would just do a small update today to make up for the few weeks I’ve missed!

Currently Reading:

Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire (JK Rowling)

I’m being really slow on my Harry Potter re-read, but I’m still hoping to finish them all by the end of the year! 

Confessions Of a Murder Suspect (James Patterson)

I haven’t started this just yet but it is next on my list as soon as I finish Goblet of Fire!

Nest by Terry Goodkind

I was contacted by thepublisher about reviewing Nest and after reading the description I had to accept! Hope it lives up to my expectations!

Confessions: The Private School Murders by James Patterson


I’m preempting the fact that I’ll enjoy the first one…

Upcoming Reviews/Posts

I’m caught up on all of my reviews now (yayy!!) My review of Sister is due out tomorrow, and I finished The Darkest Secret only last night, so I am on top of everything now!

Weekly Wednesday Update #71

Hello fellow bookworms and welcome to another weekly Wednesday Update! I got round to adding a few books to my TBR that I had forgotten about so they will be the ones primarily mentioned here.

Currently Reading:

Sister (Rosamund Lupton)

I’m currently getting through books at a surprising speed! I’ve been back at uni not even 2 weeks and already made a reasonable dent in thr pile of books I brough with me! I started Sister this morning, and I’ve heard good things about Lupton’s writing, so hopefully I will enjoy it!

Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire (JK Rowling)

Onto my favourite book in the series (I love them all really but I have particular preference for this one!) and when it starts to get really juicy! Also means I’m into the longer books which I love (the bigger the book, the better!)

Ragdoll (Detective William Fawkes #1) by Daniel Cole

Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner


Atomic Number Sixty by Dave Johnston


milk and honey by Rupi Kaur


The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

 

Upcoming Reviews/Posts

I’m catching up on reviews but I seem to be getting through books quicker than I’m reviewing them, but I am trying to keep up! I will try and write another one today to be published over the weekend, and there is one coming out tomorrow as well!

Wow it’s been a while! Hello fellow bookworms and welcome to another Weekly Wednesday Update! I have been so inactive on this blog but I have been so busy working and moving back to university I just haven’t had the time! I am slighltly more actuve of instagram though, so if you haven’t already, you can check me out under my blog name (bookmuffin)!

Currently Reading:

The Great Gatsby (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

I’ve only started this one last night, and because of the more classic style of writing, it’s taking a while to get into, but I’m sure I’ll manage to get through until the end!

Prisoner of Azkaban (JK Rowling)

Still on my Harry Potter read-through, I love Prisoner of Azkaban but I’m excited to finish (almost there) to read Goblet of Fire which is wuite possibly my favourite in the series!

The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling

I’m interested in what you guys think of this one, I’ve been putting it off for a while, but it can’t be that bad because, come on, it’s JK Rowling…

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

I went to see the musical last Friday for the first time after knowing and loving the soundtrack for 7 years or so and I fell even more in love with it! I cannot comprehend how much love I give to this musical at the moment, but I want to read the book to keep the magic alive!

Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda

I love listening to the Hamilton soundtrack at the moment (as you saw in yesterday’s post) but I want to read the book when it’s out in the UK to get a full underdtanding of the story.

Upcoming Reviews/Posts

I have lots of reviews to post… Still. I have some uni work to do but will try and get round to publishing one or two later on today/tomorrow because I am fully aware that I am behind on reviews!

The Giver (Lois Lowry)

I am over half way through this book and loving it so far! I’ve heard good things, so I hope the ending is just as good as what I’ve read so far.!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (JK Rowling)

I FINISHED CURSED CHILD ON THE FIRST DAY AND OH MY GOD IT BROUGHT BACK HARRY POTTER FEELINGS!!! As a result of this, I am doing another reread of the series, but this time I’m doing it slighly differently, because I’m doing it as a read along with a good friend of mine, so I’m very excited about that.

Hello fellow bookworms and welome to another Weekly Wednesday Update! It’s on a Thursday again, I’m so sorry but I got really into my book last night and wanted to get it finished! Anyway, here I am with a post for you today, albeit a day late! 

Currently Reading:

The Rosie Project (Graeme Simsion)

I decided I needed a nice lighthearted book aftera series of thrillers, and this has been sitting in my shelf for a while so I thought I would give it a go! I’ve heard plenty of good things about it and I’m hoping it should be a fairly quick read for me.

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

This is Liane Moriarty’s new book due to be released later this month, but thanks to the wonders of NetGalley I have this book sitting on my Kindle waiting to be read!

Watching Edie by Camilla Way


I found this a deal on Kindle and thought it sounded intriguing, and as I am a lover of thriller writing, I thought I would try this out.

Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson


This whole series was given to my mum by one of her work colleagues and I decided to hijack them once she is finished to read and add to my own collection!

In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware


I picked this up in a second hand book store as I had heard quite a lot about the author and her writing so I thought I’d give it a shot! She’s also just released The Woman in Cabin 10 which I am very tempted to purchase as well.

Upcoming Reviews/Posts

I will be writing a review for The Killing Files soon so hopefully I can get that published by Monday, and desperately try to stay on track next week with posting, etc.

Hello fellow bookworms and welcome to another Weekly Wednesday Update! I know it’s late this week (again!) but hey ho, better late than never! I’ve been reading some great books recently so let’s have a look…

Currently Reading:

The Killing Files (Nikki Owen)

The sequel to Subject 375 is making out to be a hit! So much has happened already and I’m not everyoneen 100 pages in yet!

The Fault In Our Stars (John Green)

I know I said at the start of the year that I wasn’t going to reread any books but just couldn’t resist!

The Selection by Kiera Cass

10507293

So I’ve seen so many people have read this book and when  got the chance to request it on NetGalley, I thought I’d go for it and see what all the fuss was about. It sounds a bit like Red Queen, which was quite a good read, and I’m looking forward to some slightly lighter YA fiction after a lot of heavier crime thrillers!

Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven

28671039

I absolutely loved All The Bright Places so, again, when I got the chance to request this on NetGalley I jumped on it! I’m looking forward to see what more Jennifer Niven has to offer!

Upcoming Reviews/Posts

I will be writing the rest of my reviews tonight so they will be out tomorrow, finally! Also I am trying to get back into routine so I will be posting more frequently once I get on top of my reviews.
