I’m linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Hey y’all! Things around here have been insanely quiet of late. It’s kinda nice, actually.

I’m excited to watch the new season of Grace and Frankie when I have some time, and I just binged The End of the F***ing World, which was cute and funny IF you like really dark, weird stuff, which I do.

In bookish news, I am planning a trip to Denver, (I live about an hour away) to do a post about awesome indie bookstores there!

I did two book reviews this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

 

Bookish Boyfriends Between You and Me

Bookish Boyfriends is SO effing cute. A narrator in love with boys in books, but what really stands out is some AMAZING girl friendships.

Between Me and You is a story about a marriage, told from the perspectives of both wife and husband, though one is telling the story forward and one backward.

I really liked this week, reading one YA, one adult novel, and one poetry collection. I would love to keep this up, and think it may be what I shoot for for the future!

I have a tonnnn of arcs (what else is new?) which I am very excited about! Here’s what I’m currently reading! Click the picture to see the Goodreads page!

Dear Dwayne, With Love. I’m not going to lie to you, I totally judged this book by the cover and I want to love it. I am really, really hoping for no fat shaming, though the book is (at least partially) about a woman who tries to lose weight.

This Love Story Will Self-Destruct. How cute is that title?! Apparently it’s like a re-imagined When Harry Met Sally? And a NA title, which I’d like to read more of this year.

           

 

I’m not going to do a whole post on this, but I also read Wild Nights, a poetry collection this week. The collection is made up of five sections and five female poets, ranging from Sappho in ancient times to Edna St. Vincent Millay, a much more modern poet. You can click the picture to see my review on GoodReads.

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

  1. You seem to be reading a lot of cute and fluffy books 🙂 I feel like I should do that more too, lately! Must be the winter.

      I have been! I think because I started a darker book lately and had to DNF at 50% because I really hated it haha, so I’ve been choosing lighter stuff for a little while!

  2. I read a book that had a similar storyline to Bookish Boyfriends (Bookishly Ever After), which I didn’t like at all, but since this one focuses on friendships, I’m DEFINITELY going to look into it! <3 I've heard some good things about Dear Dwayne, With Love! Happy reading, Vani! ^_^

      I read your review of Bookishly Ever After! I was so amazed at how similar but different they sounded? This one is definitely a gem in terms of breaking the crappy tropes we occasionally get in YA 🙂

    I love posts on indie bookstores, so that sounds awesome. Can’t wait to see your post. And The End of the F***ing World caught my eye on Netflix, I was wondering if it was good. Nice to hear that it was, I may have to binge that next. 🙂

    1. Vani says:

      Yay! I went and now I’m so excited to do the post because the stores were amazing. I really liked The End of the Fucking World, but I think it’s definitely not for everyone? If you watch it, I’d be interested to hear what you think!

  4. Your trip to Denver sounds fun! One of my goals this year is to make an effort to visit more bookstores when I travel (we are sadly lacking in them here). I’m curious about Between Me and You. It sounds amazing but that if it isn’t carefully done could end up being really confusing. Have a great week!

    1. Vani says:

      We are lacking them here, too! Very few indie bookstores and that’s what I’d prefer. I’m excited to put the post together because the shops were AMAZING. Just have to get through like a million pictures.

      So Between Me and You was really not my cup of tea! The alternating timeline turned out to be the only thing about it I did like. But it has some pretty good reviews also, so. It’s so subjective.

  5. Samantha says:

    Sounds like you had a pretty awesome week!! Hope this week is the same!

  6. These all look very tempting, especially Between Me and You, as I’ve enjoyed other books by Allison Winn Scotch.

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  7. I love the first four covers, they are all so nice to look at, like candy :-)! I hope the poetry pleases you, have a great reading week!

  8. I was thinking of watching The End of the F***ing World, but it’s rated Mature so I’m a little wary.
    I’m never really sure what the difference is between YA and NA.
    I’m not much for contemporaries, but Bookish Boyfriends really does sound cute and funny.
    Have a great week! 🙂

    1. Vani says:

      It definitely is! It’s dark. I’d say even a little more so than you see in the trailer.
      To my understanding, YA titles stop when a character finishes high school. Even if you have an 18yo but they’re in college, it has to be NA at that point.
      It was very cute!
      You as well! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
