Life Update: Random thoughts and uncoming things

I just had a small out of body experience when I realized just how many people care about my little blog. Current follower count  is 558 and I only  know one in real life!  Thank you all for your ongoing support and interest. I  hope I can continue to provide relevent and informative reviews and other posts. Here is a quick update of what I am reading/listening to and some exciting news.

First, I was recently  invited to participate in a blog tour for the incredible story The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict. She will be sharing a guest post in the morning. In the meanwhile, I am diligently working to review the novel and will hopefully  post about it soon. If you haven’t already picked it up I highly  recommend it!

I am also preparing to review the following:

The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa

The Atomic Weight of Love by  Elizabeth Church

To Capture What We Cannot Keep by Beatrice Colin

I’ve been lucky to have read to many fantastic stories recently (really…always). I have been spending some personal time listening to audio books and here are a few of  my favorites:

Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

Pretty Baby and The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

At The Water’s Edge  by Sara Gruen

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

I also took two personal reading breaks for The Light Between Oceans by M.L Stedman and The Fireman by Joe Hill both of  which I loved.

Last but certainly not least my husband  and I will be visiting London in a week for a week! Sans our kiddo for our 5th wedding anniversary among other things. All you Londoners don’t hesitate  to offer your best advice! I am hoping  to  get a large amount  of writing done on the flights as  well as blog a bit about our  travels. I can’t wait!

What are you reading/listening to/looking forward  to?

Read Voraciously.

P.S. Fantasy football is NOT going well this season.  Cannot seem to nail down a solid performance.

  1. Wow, so many exciting things happening! I’ve only just moved to London so I can’t give much advice, but the next thing on my list is a tour of the Tower of London. I hear it’s amazing if you’re into rather dark English history.

      1. If you’re going to be in the Camden area, there’s a really cute little second hand bookshop called Walden Books. They do a lot of art and architecture books but also some classics and other little treats x

      1. Cecil Court is lovely and also gives onto Charing Cross Road, which still has a good number of bookshops – Any Amount of Books is a favourite. You might also want to visit the Persephone Bookshop on Lambs Conduit Street, which is walkable from Covent Garden. Have fun!

  2. My favourite places in London are Camden, Covent Garden (for the architecture of the market and cute little cafes) and brick lane in shoreditch, especially on a Sunday for the market, the 24 hour bagel shop and about a million curry houses. Plus the v&a museum and natural history museum are amazing. Have fun!
