Slow going! | #IMWAYR #19

Posted 29th October 2018 by Jordann @thebookbloglife in it's monday! what are you reading?, memes / 9 Comments

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!

Books I read last week

This book was amazing, it was a really good look into the current situation that is happening with police brutality at the moment. I have decided not to write a review on the book, purely because of how controversial the topic is and I don’t think I’m in a position to have an opinion on it. 

Listened to last week/Currently listening

Yup, this one is still on this list. I haven’t made any time to listen to this one. I’m hoping that I’ll eventually get round to listening to this next week. I might even schedule some time out of my day and make an effort to listen to it! May be the only way!

Currently Reading

I am really enjoying this one, it’s completely different to what I was expecting but in a good way. I will say that the beginning is a little slow and the whole thing takes a little while to actually get into the story but I can see it being a good plot line. There’s a lot of politics running through the story which is something I love!

Up Next

This is one of the books that have been sat on my TBR for the last couple of months and I have never gotten around to reading it. So I’m making the time and getting around to reading it! 

How did your week go? Did you read anything that blew you away? Let me know in the comments!

    I never read YA, but made an exception for The Hate U Give and am so glad I did. What a powerful story! I also didn’t write a review becasue I felt like it had all been said already and there was nothing new I could add to the conversation. Glad you liked it.

  2. Hi Jordan, Why did you feel that you weren’t in a position to have an opinion on The Hate U Give? I read the book a couple months back and participate in many outside dialogues about the issues that are brought up throughout the novel. What was holding you back?

    Here is my weekly update!
