Friday Reads 6/2/17

Well, it's Friday. I work all of the next 3 Saturdays, so my major work-at-home days will be Fridays. For some reason, when I have Fridays off instead of Saturday, I feel so much more rushed to get everything done. I mean, I have the same amount of time off, but when it's separated from Sunday, I try to cram as much as possible into Friday. This means less reading time during the weekend.

I signed up for the 30 Day Book Binge during the month of June. One of the booktubers I follow has been struggling the last few months. She just can't get into any books, and just doesn't feel like reading. I totally get that. Been there, for sure. She decided to do a 30 Day Book Binge, just to get back in the habit of reading. She asked for others to join her. I decided that was a thing I could do. Basically, the idea is to just focus on reading in your free time instead of going to social media, or watching TV, or whatever it is you do to waste time. I read a couple of chapters yesterday while Alyssa was doing her physical therapy, so that's one day fixed.

Finally, I'll show you what I plan to read this week.

Invisible Library

Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman - I have started this one. It's the book club book for June, and I'm liking it a lot so far.

My Lady Jane

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows - I picked this up last weekend. It's cute. It's told through several points of view. The King is dying, and to secure his kingdom, he plans to marry his favorite cousin Jane to the son of his closest advisor. Jane is a book reader and no one is interested in her because she doesn't care about court. Also she has red hair. Her betrothed is only a human at night. He spends his days as a horse. So you can see they've taken some liberties with the history.

By the Book

By the Book by the New York Time Book Review - I am enjoying reading a few of these interviews each night before bed.

How to Survive a Plague

How to Survive a Plague: The Inside Story of How Citizens and Science Tamed AIDS by David France - This came in at the library. I thoroughly plan to pick it up, but this thing is massive. I'm a little intimidated.

So that's what's on my stack for this week. What are you planning to read?
