IMWAYR-24/04/2017

Hey guys, I'm back with another reading update! I'm linking back up with Kathryn @ The Book Date for this weekly meme.

This week I finished reading Nowhere Near You by Leah Thomas. Sequel to the amazing Because You'll Never Meet Me, I was expecting great things. It was great, but for some reason I found it quite hard to get through and it took me around two weeks to read!

I also finished reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. She's the author of the Delirium trilogy, which was definitely not on my favourites list, but I can say for sure that I enjoyed this book. It tells the story of a high-school senior who lives her last day alive 7 times. It's the perfect quick, yet deep read for a teen.

I attended the Shakespeare Comedy Theater Festival in Delhi last weekend, and after watching Macbeth felt inspired to read it and understand the differences between the play I watched and the original. I finished reading The Modern Shakespeare's Translated version of the play.

I began reading "When You Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead. My cousin recommended this middle-grade, mysterious novel to me, and I have to say I'm enjoying it!

I'm currently reading The Postmistress by Sarah Blake. Yup, that's right, I'm still working on that one! I've been sharing the book with my mom, which means we've both been reading it simultaneously. It's fallen a bit on the back-burner.

  1. I'm just the opposite. I liked Delirium but couldn't force myself to read all of Before I Fall. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. That is exactly the opposite- well we all like authors for different reasons, don't we?

  2. I really liked Before I Fall, and Delirium. I haven't read the first books you talked about, not really my normal read. I do hate when a sequel doesn't live up to the first book and kind of ruins a series for me sometimes. Have a great week!

    1. I haven't encountered the sequel problem often, but it seems that I was the only one in my friend circle who didn't enjoy Nowhere Near You as much as Because You'll Never Meet Me.

  3. I struggled with the Postmistress when I read it.

    It was a busy week of reading, Girl Scouts, the Mandarin Showcase, and boxing up books. Come see what I'm reading.

    1. I used to be a Girl Scout- but I only made it to Brownie before I shifted countries. I never took it up again....
