YAY! The first What I Read Wednesday for 2016!! I meant to do this last week but between getting my wisdom teeth out and the craziness of my life, this post did not happen. #fail However if you are new to my blog, these weekly posts (well, they are suppose to be weekly, oops) are to talk about books that I am reading. There are so many books I read that will never be featured on the blog because I read A LOT and having so many book review requests due each week/month there is not enough time to write reviews for all the books. With this knowledge of my literary habits, What I Read Wednesday was born! These are posts where I can talk about all the books I am reading, loving, hating, or plan on reading in the future. So without further ado, let’s get to the list:
When Breath becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (Nonfiction, Memoir) A book about a Neurosurgeon who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and now faces what it is like to be a patient. I am about half way through the book and it is so good! It’s a short read but it is very well written and I actually feel smarter reading it, which is weird but I am learning so much! I love it! Review up next week or the week after.
The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck by Sarah Knight (Nonfiction) Oh my gosh this book is brilliant and hilarious! Of course a lot of people have read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, but this is a fantastic spoof of the national best seller that I should probably read. It is insightful and I am enjoying reading this at the end of the day to help remind of me things I should “give my f*cks to, and what I should not”. Will most likely write a review on this since I just love it!
Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War by Karen Abbott (Nonfiction, History) If you do not know how much I love history or historical fiction then just stick around, you’ll find out soon enough! This is not a quick read, and it is a very dense, history book which I plan on taking my sweet time reading. There is a lot of information and detail in Karen’s work and I have no desire to pass over any of it. Let me know if you want a review on this book, on the fence if I will say anything.
TBR(To Be Read):
How to grow an Addict by J.A. Wright (Fiction) This book is suppose to be a comedic approach to life in rehab, which is weird and I like weird books so excited to dive into this one. I was approached by the author to review this, so review should be up next week or the week after.
The Art of War by Stephen Coonts (Military, Fiction, Suspense) I was approached by St. Martin’s Press for a review of this which is a military, suspense thriller which I have never read. I love history and historical fiction, and I studied military tactic in college so this could be a fun read!
Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes (Nonfiction) I bought this book for my roommate for Christmas and she said I had to read it, so why not. Of course it could be a little counter intuitive after reading The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, so I may just read a little bit and see if it worth it.
I really haven’t finished any books this week, I finished two last week Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend (Review here) and The Edge of Nowhere which will be up on the blog tomorrow. But nothing really finished this week so far.
That is it for this week’s What I read Wednesday! I am thinking that maybe these posts should be biweekly and not every week since some weeks I forget to post or I haven’t really read anything new from the week before. Let me know if you like the weekly format or if biweekly would be better!
Hope you all are having a fantastic week! Let me know what you are reading in the comments below or if you are reading anything that I have mentioned before.
