IMWAYR-18/07/2016

Hey guys! It's the beginning of a new week again- and that means reading updates! I read quite a bit this week, and am slowly catching up to my Goodreads Challenge. I've now read 46 books out of 100, although I'm supposed to be close to 53.
  I finished reading Set in Stone by Catherine Dunne. Although some parts of the plot were predictable while others were full of surprise, I enjoyed the book. The simplistic writing allows the reader to pick up on all the emotions weaved through it, giving the book a dynamic feel. You can read my review here.




  I also started reading- or rather listening to- my first every audio book! It's Alive by Scott Sigler. So far I'm enjoying it, and it's giving me a break from regular reading. It feels like watching a movie without any visuals, or reading a book aloud without any text. I'm adjusting to the feeling but I think I prefer reading myself. However, audio books are a faster way to pick up on reading, because you can give your mind a break while you simply visualize things.
 I also finished "The Golden Rendezvous" by Alistair MacLean. I don't quite like the slow and dull writing, but the plot seemed interesting. It's definitely not one of my favourites.
 I've also started reading "Best of Friends" by Cathy Kelly. So far I'm liking it. It's an easy read, but it does resonate with our everyday life.
  The next book I want to read is Emma, by Jane Austen. It'll help me with my classics challenge. I've read Pride and Prejudice by Austen, and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully, I'll enjoy Emma's character as much as I enjoyed that of the Bennet sisters.
  I definitely worked a lot on my reading this week. I've read more this week than any other week for a while, and I'm really glad. I'm catching up to my challenges- and it's a good feeling! I also got in a good amount of blog posts last week:
- Dangerous
-It Rests
-Unique
-Saturday Snapshot
-Life as a Gypsy
-Set in Stone by Catherine Dunne

  2. Those reading goals can haunt me and make me feel guilty as heck. I am a hard core audiobook fan. I listen to them when I am working in the garden or doing housework, or even when I am doing meaningless work at school. I listen when I am walking, shopping and waiting in lines. I hope you become an addict because it is amazing how many more books you can get in!

    1. Thanks! I'll definitely keep in mind how "timeless" audio-books can be. Thanks a ton for stopping by!

  3. Emma is one I've read a few times. I was annoyed by Emma sometimes, but still loved the book. Jane Austen is one of my favorites. :)

    1. I'm enjoying the book so far- I love how unconventional of a character she is.
