What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Sing Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward
I am about halfway through this book and let me just tell you, it is amazing! Jesmyn Ward has the potential to become one of my new favourite authors. I have so many feelings about this novel already, and I am not ready for it to end. I am really trying to savour it.
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Wow! This book! It is still messing with me and I finished it a few days ago. It is thought-provoking, heartbreaking and powerful. It really challenges you and makes you think about what it means to be human. I will have a review posted soon!
Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely
A lot of fellow bloggers have read this book lately and I am so curious about it. I am not usually in to Westerns (not that I have ever actually read one) but something about this book is appealing to me. I can not wait to dive in to it and see what I think! After all of the heavy, Literary Fiction that I have been reading lately, I am ready for something fun and action packed!
If you have read any of these books I would love to know! Has anyone seen the Never Let Me Go movie? Is it any good?

OMG! I loooove Never Let Me Go, and I agree with all the emotions you were left with!
Nevertheless, a book that’s able to cause all that, is always worth my time ♥
I agree. It is a book like that that sticks with me and becomes an all time favourite! Have you seen the movie? I am so curious about it!
Great post, Kristin! I’m gonna buddy read Never Let Me Go next month and your reaction got me so excited to read this!! 😀✨📚
Thank you! I am so excited for you to read and then we can talk about it! So many thoughts!
Oooh, that’s so exciting!! I loooove gushing about books <3
i love the cover for “sing unburied sing” <3 i'm glad you're enjoying it! i have never heard of it before!
The cover is so pretty! I think you would enjoy it! It’s heavy and hard to read some times but really good.
heavy and heard sounds good 😀
I really want to check out Sing, Unburied, Sing. Glad to see you’re really enjoying it!
It is really great. I highly recommend it so far!
I’ve heard so much about Kazuo Ishiguro! I’m currently reading one of Haruki Murakami’s books, 1Q84 (have you heard of him?), and I’m loving the magical realism. I looked up lists with influential Japanese authors, and Ishiguro always popped up on those lists. Have you read more than one of Ishiguro’s books? Which one should I start with? Good luck with your TBR! 😋
I have been wanting to read IQ84 for ages! I am so happy that you are enjoying it! This is my first of his novels but it feels like a great one to start with. I am definitely going to look in to reading more of his books!
Sing Unburied Sing & Gunslinger Girl are both on my TBR, I’ve also heard great things about them both. Glad you’ve enjoyed your recent reads & hope Gunslinger Girl delivers on the fun 🙂 Happy reading!
Thank you! I am really excited about Gunslinger Girl. I have a good feeling that it is exactly what I need!
Well then I hope that it is & I can’t wait to read your thoughts on it 🙂
Happy reading! <3 <3 <3
I recently finished Gunsglinger girl but sadly I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped. I really hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Ah that is too bad! I should go in to it with lower expectations!
I don’t think I’ve ever actually read a western so will be interested in hearing what you think once you get to it.
Glad to hear you loved Never Let Me Go. That book just about broke me.
I am very curious to see what I think as well!
Ugh Never Let Me Go! I do not think I will ever get over it!
Never Let Me Go is one of my favorites! I have a quote from it on my wall. Did you see the movie? Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
That’s awesome. What quote? I haven’t! Is it any good. I am so curious about it since I love everyone who is in it!
The quote is actually a couple paragraphs when Miss Lucy tells Tommy that he is worthwhile even if he’s not creative. It’s really touching. I enjoyed the movie a lot though it’s a bit more obvious what the end game is than it was on the book.
NEVER LET ME GO is such an important book to me 😍 And SING UNBURIED SING WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZINGG ! It’s a fresh concept and so original ❤️
Never Let Me Go was truly beautiful. I just finished Sing Unburied Sing and it is definitely unique! The ending was brilliant.
Yay glad you liked Never Let Me Go!
It was excellent!
Never Let Me Go has been on my tbr for a long time now.I’m looking forward to reading it soon. I’m glad you liked it.
Ah it’s fantastic. I hope you love it as much as I did!
