This Week In Books #133

I am joining in with the lovely Lipsy from Lipsy’s Lost and Found’s feature which highlights our week in books. I shall be sharing what I’m reading now, then and next! I won’t be showcasing my new books as I do that on a Saturday. I’m really excited by this feature as I loved sharing my recent reads. My book reviews published on my blog are often WAY behind what I’m actually reading, so this is a good feature to keep you up to date!

Book images go to Goodreads!

NOW-

Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts, #1)

I am almost halfway through this book! I’m enjoying it so far but at the moment I’m not sure I’d carry on the series.

THEN-

Love Songs & Other Lies

I did like this book which was a cute contemporary YA read, however, it wasn’t overly memorable for me.

NEXT-

Missing Pieces

I’ve heard really good things about this book. I am looking forward to reading it.

What are you reading this week? Let me know!

Love Songs & Other Lies

I am just over halfway through this book. It’s easy to read but it’s not blowing me away.

THEN-

More Than We Can Tell (Letters to the Lost #2)

I absolutely loved this book. If you’re into darker YA then I’d definitely recommend it to you. I very nearly gave this book 5 stars!

This book has been on my backlist for SO long. It’s time to finally get around to it!

Top Ten Backlist Books That I Want To Read

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s list is all about those pesky books that we’re yet to get around to.

Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week is the last week that Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and I just want to thank them for hosting for so long. It really is a commitment and I’ll always be grateful to them for introducing me to so many blogs and in turn, so many books. Thank you ladies!

This week’s list is all about those books that we meant to read in 2017 but never got around to them. There are a few of these and most of them were debuts! It’s my goal this year to read more debut authors, so I’ve focused mainly on 2017 debuts.

A List of Cages

I was so excited about this book in 2016 when I heard about it, so goodness knows why I hadn’t read it yet. I’m hoping to read it ASAP!

Seven Days of You

I am excited that this is based in Tokyo. I don’t think I’ve read anything set there before. It looks like a fab contemporary read.

The Education of Margot Sánchez

This is another one that I had on my radar and never got around to!

The Disappearances

I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book that it’s definitely become a priority for me to read in 2018.

It Started With Goodbye

Although I’ve heard mixed things about this book, I want to give it a try.

Girl Out of Water

I’m intrigued by the premise of this book and I’ve heard some good things.

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

I feel like this book was everywhere recently, yet I still didn’t get around to reading it! Sums me up really…

The Hidden Memory of Objects

I’m excited about this book. I want to read it ASAP! Love that cover.

Caraval (Caraval, #1)

I’m excited but nervous about this book. I’m worried the hype monster will get me.

Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts, #1)

I want to get around to this book in 2018. I bought it a year ago!

What do you intend to read in 2018? Let me know. Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!
