Weekly Wrap Up August 5 – The World Isn’t That Bad

weekly wrap up

This was another pretty great reading week. The last few days have been a bit stressful, but I still managed to finish three books earlier in the week, so my lack of reading wasn’t the end of the world.

The first book I finished this week is Factfulness by Hans Rosling. I’ve talked about the one quite a bit already, so I won’t go on about it. It’s basically all about how the world doesn’t suck as much as we think it does, and I loved it. Highly recommend this one!

Then I read Kismet by Luke Tredget, which was not my favorite. It had so much potential, but ultimately had a lot of problems. I did a review all about it, so if you’re curious, you can go check that out.

Finally, I read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, which might be my new favorite book. It absolutely blew me away, and I ended up reading the entire thing in one day.

Currently, I’m making my way through a few books, two of which are rereads. First is the audiobook of The Golem and the Jinni, which I’m rereading before the sequel comes out in the next month or two (I forgot exactly when). It’s been over four years since I read it the first time, and I’m falling in love all over again.

I also got the urge to read a classic romance this week, but couldn’t decide, so I defaulted back to an old favorite: Pride & Prejudice. I’m actually reading this on Project Gutenburg during downtime at work (because if I make the window small enough, I can kind of hide it in my email, and it looks like work – don’t tell anyone).

Finally, I started reading My Plain Jane, and I’m enjoying it quite a bit so far. It’s a fun read, and I’m excited to see where this one goes.

That’s it for this week! I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend! As always, I’d love to hear what you’re reading, so be sure to share in the comments!

  1. I loved Evelyn Hugo! I read it two months ago for a book club and devoured it in about two days. There were a few bits I didnโ€™t like, but it still got 4 stars from me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I randomly re-read Pride and Prejudice recently too! Reading it online is such a good way to squeeze reading it into your day… and if it’s down time anyway, I don’t see any harm in it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Your post has served as yet another reminder to me that I need to pick up The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo because EVERYONE has been singing its praises as of late.

    1. I know! I keep forgetting about it and then randomly coming across it and getting excited all over again. And I just went to check the release date, and apparently I read it wrong (or it got delayed) and now we have to wait another year ๐Ÿ™

      But it’s still happening.
