#bookreport & #weeklyforecast
#finished: Finished two books this week and enjoyed both of them.

#currentlyreading: Didn't finish The Maid for a book club meeting but I imagine that I will be able to do so this week. Started Enough on audio and its a little more eyeopening than I expected. Also started The Summer Book Club and I probably can get that completed this week as well. I am just at a standstill with Alice Munro's Best at the moment.

melissajayne #upcoming: I hope to restart The Essex Serpent and start The Midnight Library this week.

Happy reading 📚😊

#finished: finished 2 books this week; wasn't wowed by them, but they were fairly easy to complete.

#currentlyreading: All the Light is for a book club meeting; the Alice Munro is a #slowbutsteady (didn't read from it this week); The Music of Bees is for a previous book club meeting and it shouldn't take a lot of time to complete it.

melissajayne #upcomingreads: The Maid is for another book club meeting this week, but since I own my copy and have read it before, I don't foresee it taking me too long to read. The Essex Serpent is a restart for me and I hope to get to it this week. Midnight Library is for a book club meeting later in the month and I don't think it will take me long to read it, as I have quite a bit of time to read it and this will be the fourth time I have read it. 1mo

#finished: Nothing so far, but I am almost done with The Awakening.

#currentlyreading: The Awakening should be completed fairly soon; Alice Munro's Best is a #slowbutsteady and I am hoping to work and complete The Music of Bees

#upcomingreads: Need to start All the Light and The Maid for book clubs about a week from now; The Essex Serpent is a restart

Happy reading 📚❤️

#bookreport & #weeklyforecast
#finished: I finished quite a number of books this past week, due in large part to #deweysreadathon that was held on Saturday and the fact that I had two book club meetings last week (finished my other book last week). Reviews of these books will be forthcoming this week.

#currentlyreading: still plugging away at The Kingdom and will be picking up The Essex Serpent again this week (just a really busy reading time)

melissajayne #upcomingreads: I am planning on starting The Women, Legends and Wolf Hall this coming week. I hope to try to combine my apartment cleaning/packing with my reading as much as possible.

Hope you all have a wonderful week of reading.📚

#finished: I finished A House in the Sky and really liked it (I will be posting a review in the next couple of days)

#currentlyreading: Read quite a bit this past week, as I spent the wee hours of Saturday morning finishing up A House in the Sky. I also spent quite a bit of Saturday reading The Kingdom, The Power, and The Glory and feel like this will need a reread at some point. I hope to either finish or continue

melissajayne reading the other books that I have in my currently reading pile, in addition to doing some more cleaning out of my apartment.

#upcomingreads: I have to read Fried Green Tomatoes for a book club meeting this week and judging by the chapters, I feel like it should be a fairly quick read. I do plan on working on Wolf Hall.

Happy reading 📚

SarahBookInterrupted I have had Wolf Hall on my bookshelf for 2 years. A friend gave it to me. It‘s so big and I just haven‘t started it because I‘m trying to determine if it will be a slow or quick read. My mother came for Christmas and read it in 3 days but she is an incredibly fast reader. She liked it, but that was all the insight I got. Are you finding it a quick engaging read or is it a slow read and I‘ll need some real time to get into it? 3mo
melissajayne @SarahBookInterrupted I read it within the last ten years and I think it took me awhile to get through it, but mind you I am a slow reader. I found it to be a slower read, as there are a lot of characters that are written into the book (there is a character list that is several pages long). 3mo
SarahBookInterrupted @melissajayne Thanks, that‘s what I thought. It might have to be a summer read for me when I have more time. I appreciate it! 3mo

#bookreport & #weeklyforecast
#finished: A very successful week; finished Evidence of Things Unseen and Hamnet. Enjoyed Hamnet more.

#currentlyreading: I am reading quite a bit. Cutting is almost done; Northwoods should be a few reads until I completed; will work on the other three to get them done this week, but I can guarantee nothing.

#upcoming: A House & Fried Green Tomatoes are #bookclub reads and Wolf Hall is a #buddyread.

melissajayne I am going to post my review for Hamnet in the next couple of days. I also have a #booktube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ-6AdE0GXHuBANwXj8RYKQ) and #booktok channel (https://www.tiktok.com/@mjreadings), if you would prefer to hear me give a review of the book.

Have a good week and happy reading 📚

#finished: A very productive week. I finished Flowers of the Killer Moon and just finished Indigo (my review will be up in the next day or two).

#currentlyreading: I am down to two books at the moment (Northwoods and The Essex Serpent), but will likely be starting a couple of the #upcomingreads in the next few days.

Continued below...

melissajayne Upcoming reads: I will be starting Cutting and 100 year old man this week, as they are both book club reads. I hope to start working on Last Mission to Tokyo this coming week as well, depends on how I am feeling.

Happy reading 📚

#finished: I got three books completed this past week and feel quite pleased with myself. I really liked Prequel, but was a bit disappointed with A Man Called Ove.

#currentlyreading: I am continuing to plod a long with The Alice Network, but am still enjoying it. Started Killers and The Essex Serpent.

Continued below...

melissajayne #upcomingreads: I hope to start Indigo and Seven Up this coming week and pick up Last Mission to Tokyo again.

#finished: Finally finished a book this week! Yay! I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading Lattes & Legends sometime soon.

#currentlyreading: still working on Prequel (almost done it, but its a slower read than I expected) and The Alice Network (I am enjoying the Eve sections, but the Charlie sections seem slower). Started A Man Called Ove and really like it.

Continued below...

melissajayne #upcomingreads: Will start Meet Me at the Lake, as it is a book club read (as is Ove). Am planning on starting Indigo for the Book Cougars readalong meetup in a few weeks and will pick up and hopefully finish Last Mission (not much left in the book) this coming week. I will hopefully start Seven Up and The Essex Serpent.

I also got The Women by Kristin Hannah yesterday evening and really want to start that as well.

Happy reading 📚

#finished: Didn't finish anything this past week; think reading a lot early last week impacted on that.

#currentlyreading: I am still continuing to read Prequel and The Alice Network and I started reading Bookshops and Bonedust

#upcomingreads: like my previous weeks, I am hoping to work on these two, provided I finish either prequel or The Alice Network early on in the week.

Happy reading 📚
