Books I Read This Week 2017 – 19

I started this week with For the Love. I had seen Jet Hatmaker’s book at Bravegirls Camp and then saw Glennon mentioning her and then the book appeared at my library in the same week so I figured that was the universe telling me it was time to read it. I am glad I did. 

I then moved on to Anything is Possible which I had been looking forward to reading and I absolutely loved it. There are a lot of tough issues in these stories but Elizabeth Strout can write with elegance and so much tenderness. I absolutely love her work.

I then went back and forth with a lot of books and settled in on Chasing Slow which I’d also been looking forward to reading. In the end, it was an okay read. I loved pieces of it and was ok about other pieces of it. I am glad I read it.

I then moved to The Hate U Give which was powerful, thought-provoking and I am glad books like this are getting published. I knew very little about the book before I started it and read it pretty much in one sitting.

I then moved on to The Upside of Unrequited right after. it was lighter and still poignant for me. I needed the lightness and ended up staying up past 2am to read this. It wasn’t as magical as her previous book but honestly i loved it to bits.

And finally, I ended the week with The One Memory of Flora Banks. This makes three YA novels in a row. It was just one of those weeks. I read this one really fast and kept having a sense of doom like it was going to end terribly and there were some really sad parts but it redeemed itself. 

I’m also still reading bits of Storm in a Cup, The Book of Joy, Modern Mindfulness, and The Craving Mind.  Nonfiction sometimes requires more patience than i have. Chasing Slow ended up being the 100th book I read this year.

Books I Read this Week 2017 is a year-long project for 2017. You can read more about my projects for 2017 here.
