In My Reading Life

Last week, I finished Scythe by Neal Shusterman and The Complete Stories of Truman Capote by Truman Capote. Right now, I’m reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon and Some Possible Solutions: Stories by Helen Phillips.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Thank you to everybody who has entered my giveaway so far. I’m always paranoid that nobody will enter.
  2. I won a giveaway, and I’m getting Dread Nation, my most-anticipated release of 2018!
  3. I’ve been finding so many new blogs to follow recently. I guess a lot of people start (or restart) blogs in January.
  4. I got new running shoes and a new black trench coat. Now I kinda look like a sporty vampire hunter.
  5. New season of Survivor.

Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!


  1. O
    I AM SO JEALOUS! You won a copy of Dread Nation! BUT SO HAPPY FOR YOU!
    After Hell Diver III that's my most anticipated 2018 release too!
    Can't wait to hear how you like it!

  2. I'm always a little scared that nobody will enter my giveaways too!

    Enjoy yours books, gonna go and follow you on bloglovin!

  3. Enjoy your books and great giveaway! Yay to new running shoes.

  4. Love that you're reading Curious Incident. I loved the book and was absolutely blown away by the stage show. Will be interested to learn how you feel.

  5. Great books! I heard so many good things about Scythe - guess I should read it some day. Have a great new week and thanks for visiting my blog.

    Best wishes

  6. Dread Nation! Lucky you! I adored Scythe and can't wait to read Thunderhead! I won't do giveaways for the same reason! lol, thanks for stopping by my stacking! Enjoy!


  7. I've got Scythe to read and have been wondering about it. I didn't think it would be my thing but another blogger recommended it very strongly, so now I'm thinking of reading it soon? I guess Dred Nation is supposed to be pretty good too!

    Vampire hunter lol.

  8. Yay for winning a new book!! Have great week!

  9. I always get nervous people won't enter my giveaways, too. I'll check yours out and enter. :) Congrats on winning your most anticipated read for 2018! I do love trench coats, or any long coats for that matter. I feel so put together when I wear them, plus, they're nice and warm, and great for vampire hunting if the mood strikes you. :)

  10. I really want to read Dread Nation. Congrats on the win! I am always nervous that nobody will enter my contests. I get so excited when I notice new entries. I hope you have a great week!

  11. I love your five happys!! They made me happy just reading about them!

  12. Congrats on winning Dread Nation. Enjoy it! I liked the first episode of Survivor. I can't wait to see what happens next. Have a great week!

  13. Running in a black trench coat? Do you also carry a scythe? :).

  14. "A sporty vampire hunter" <--this made me laugh. Thank you.
    I love winning giveaways, and how much sweeter to win a book you really, really wanted.

  15. Yay for Dread Nation! I need to pick that one up SOON (I've got a digital copy). And you've got to be the coolest sporty vampire hunter around!

  16. Oh yes, I think a giveaway is a very good way of finding out how many people actually read your blog - no one can resist the chance to win something free!! :-D

  17. Well Happy Birthday month! Congrats on getting Dread Nation - sounds like the perfect book for you to win :)

  18. I look forward to your thoughts on Dinosaurs on Other Planets. Maybe you can convince me to finally read it. I hope you are enjoying The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. It's been awhile since I read that one, but I remember liking it. Congratulations on your win of Dread Nation! I hope you have a great week!

  19. I haven't heard of a lot of these. Just looked up Dread Nation. Think I'll have to add that one to my wish list. Hope you have a great week.

  20. I like the sound of Dread Nation...I'll sample that when it comes out and see what it's like.

  21. Sporty vampire hunter? I love it. I hope you enjoyed Scythe - I really need to read the sequel for that one; it's a goodie. Enjoy Curious Incident too!!


  22. How fun to find new blogs to follow. I too can't wait to read Dread Nation!

  23. I'm curious about The Complete Stories of Truman Capote.

    Enjoy all of your books this week...and thanks for sharing.

  24. Sounds like you had a good week. I'm glad you are finding interesting blogs to follow. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  25. I'm not a fan of zombies but I have a neeeed for Dread Nation omg.

  26. Books I Would Take to a Dessert Island is such a great blogging idea. My list would include; Anne of Green Gables series, all of Jane Austen, and the Little House series.

  27. I absolutely loved curious incident in the Night Time! It was such a quirky and interesting read!

  28. Ha! I thought I was the only one who got nervous about giveaways. Like, no one is going to care or enter. I think we underestimate the power of free stuff. Running shoes and a black trench... I would avoid you if I saw you out running. :) That’s fierce.

  29. If I were on an island I'd want a blank book, a dictionary, and selection of pencils. I enjoyed The Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. I hope you do too. Come see what I've read.
