Hi! 🙂

It’s Wednesday already! That’s actually not too bad of a thing. It means the week is going by quicker and closer to the weekend! 😛 I’ve been actually having really crazy days at work over the last two weeks, so lately I’ve been really looking forward to the weekends more. Onto the books!

Game by Barry Lyga
Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall

I love both of these books so much and I’m only a little over half done with them both! Game will keep you constantly on the edge of your seat. It’s the sequel to I Hunt Killers and it’s just as amazing as I Hunt Killers is. Barry Lyga is amazing! Whistling Past the Graveyard is so good! It’s so sad, but so amazing at the same time. I am really enjoying this audiobook so much! I will be doing a review of it in the next day or two. So, I started Paper Towns by John Green, but I was just so bored with it that I put it back on my bookshelf and decided to just read it another time.

My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher
From Norvelt to Nowhere by Jack Gantos
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece was such an amazing book! I really enjoyed it and I also loved the fact that it was read by David Tennant. You can see more about what I thought on this book over here. I also listened to the audiobooks of From Norvelt to Nowhere and Hush, Hush. Norvelt, was a decent book. It had me laughing and everything, but I didn’t give it a higher rating than a 3, because I liked the first book a lot better than this one. Hush, Hush was okay. I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I found a lot of the characters to be rather annoying, to be honest. I decided to include Made You Up in this post, because it’s an amazing book (see more about what I thought of this book over here) and it’s the last physical book that I read. I’ve been listening to more audiobooks than physically reading books this month. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump when it comes to reading the books myself. I think that Game has definitely been helping with that though, because I’ve been flying through it any chance I get!

More Than This by Patrick Ness
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

I got the e-book version of More Than This from my library, so I plan to start that after Game. I am really excited about it, because it sounds like such an awesome book! I will also be listening to the audiobook for What Happened to Goodbye. I’ve never read (or listened) to a Sarah Dessen book and I know so many people love her books, so I figured I would give this one a try as my next audiobook.

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think about them? What are you currently reading? Finished reading? Reading next?
Leave a comment and link me to your posts! 🙂

You can expect a book haul post in the next week or so. I’ve been really bad this week with buying books. I was actually doing really good this month so far until Monday and yesterday, OOPS! Anyway though, I am off to work now! I hope you all have an awesome Wednesday! Bye! ❤

  1. I wasn’t a fan of Paper Towns either. I actually hated it despite the well developed characters. Bad message for teens, which isn’t what I expect from Green. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  2. I’ve been bad about buying books this week too :/ I’ve made so many orders on Book Outlet and Book Depository lol. I need to start listening to audiobooks at work. I don’t know why I never thought of that before.

    • I was doing so good with not buying books, haha. It’s just so hard not to want to buy ALL THE BOOKS! lol. I use my local library with the app OverDrive on my phone, so I am able to get audiobooks for free through there and I listen to a few of them a week (depending on the length). As long as you find good audiobooks, it’s so easy to listen and actually enjoy them. As long as the narrator is good. I didn’t start listening to audiobooks until this year actually.

      • I have been pretty bad this whole year with buying books lol. Hopefully after this month is over I can hit the reset button and do better. Do you have any audiobooks that you would recommend that have a good narrator?

      • I’ve been bad this whole year too, lol. I was starting to get better, but that didn’t last too long it seems.
        This book I am currently listening to called Whistling Past the Graveyard is really good.
        I recently listened to My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece and it was read by David Tennant and that was good.
        I thought the narrator for After the End by Amy Plum was really good and I ended up loving that book more than I thought I would.
        And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie was pretty awesome, because it was like if I was listening to a movie, because it had all the sound effects and everything. It was like an enhanced version.
        Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey was a really good book and narrator.
        Take Me With You by Catherine Ryan Hyde had a good narrator and I love that book so much.
        I’ve listened to so many this year though and I’ve had pretty good luck with a lot of them. There has been some that I had to stop listening though.

      • Nice! I’ll have to look into some of those. I have the Overdrive app too so I’ll be able to experiment with audiobooks since I haven’t really listened to a full one.

      • Yay! I hope you find some that you’ll enjoy! I usually listen to books that I want to read, but not sure if I want to spend all the money to actually buy the book. Or books that I’m not entirely sure if I want to read, so I listen to the audiobooks instead. That way I can physically read the books that I know for sure that I want to read or buy.

  3. Oh dear, that’s a shame about Paper Towns. I can understand why you got bored with it though! (Even though I did give it 5 stars, its not the most exciting to read).
    I didn’t even know you read Hush Hush! Its pretty mediocre, I agree with your thoughts. I was honestly just so confused about what was going on to focus of the annoying-ness of the characters. However Vee was pretty annoying.
    I’m so excited for you to read More Than This! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, I really want to read it. xoxo

    • It sucks that I found Paper Towns so boring, but to be honest, I only read about 75 pages. So I do plan to eventually pick it up again.
      I listened to the audiobook of Hush, Hush and meant to do a post about it! I was pretty confused with everything in the book as well and it took so long for anything to really happen and even when stuff finally did start to happen, it wasn’t that great.
      I can’t wait to read More Than This. Hopefully I’ll be starting it this weekend. 🙂

  4. You should definitely get onto reading More Than This because it is brilliant and amazing, even though it does slow down when you get about 100 pages in. All in all it is well worth the read!

    • I hope you enjoy it better than I did! To be fair though, I haven’t finished it yet. So maybe it does get a better. Eventually I’ll pick it up again.

  5. I loved Made You Up as well, and I will definitely be reading Game REALLY soon. Whistling Past The Graveyard sounds like a great read! A shame you didn’t like Hush, Hush… I have a copy on my TBR shelf, but I’m not sure I would like it either. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on More Than This!

    Happy Wednesday! Here’s my WWW. 😀

    • Hopefully you like Hush, Hush better than I did! I felt like nothing was really going on until the very end and even then it really wasn’t much or that exciting. Whistling Past the Graveyard was seriously such an amazing book. I’ll have my review post up tomorrow for it. Hopefully I’ll be starting More Than This this weekend.
