Last week was somehow a very long one at work. On Friday, when my alarm went off I thought it was Saturday and turned it off, promptly going back to sleep. I woke up an hour later realizing that it was actually Friday! With no shower and rush, rush, rushing, I made it to school before the kids. Phew! Thank goodness this week looks a little calmer. Despite work, I always manage to get some good reading time in.
Last Week’s Read:
The Guineveres, Sarah Domet’s debut novel, was a little like going back to my Catholic roots and the days of attending catechism, but in a good way! My review will be up tomorrow.
The Wonder by Emma Donoghue (author of Room) has been on my “reading next” list for too long. I just started it and am really liking the story so far. It’s funny that this book also has a Catholic theme to it – two in a row. Am I trying to tell myself something?
Likely to Read Next:
Honestly, this is always a guess for me. I have great intentions for what I plan to read next, but those plans frequently change. Most often it depends on how I’ve felt about the last book I read. Sometimes that story will lead me to read a book other than what I had planned. However, The Mothers by Brit Bennett and News of the World by Paulette Jiles are two books that I’m definitely excited about reading in October!
Have a Great Week of Reading!

I’m looking forward to your review of Guineveres…I’m seeing it everywhere right now! And I’m also excited to read The Mothers.

I’ll be anxious to hear what you think. I’m also looking forward to what you have to say about CBW. I’m doing mine on Thursday.

I almost always know what I’m going to read next. I set up my Google calendar a month ahead to fit in review books and other books on the days I don’t have review books so that I do two reviews a week on each of my blogs. I like the security of knowing what comes next but every once in a while I’ll throw in a newly arrived “can’t wait to read it” book. Come see my week. Happy reading!

I purchased The Wonder this week and am looking forward to it coming the mail. I love the premise of the book, and am glad you’re enjoying it. I loved Emma Donoghue’s writing in Room, and I know she has so many books beyond that but have yet to explore them. Happy reading!
Have heard great things about all the books featured in your post!

Hmmm..I went to Catholic school all the way up the grade 12 but haven’t been to mass in aeons, perhaps the elements in those novels will resonate with me, too!
OMG (no pun), you touched a nerve. I also survived Catholic School . Our Senior Class was 75 students strong! The uniforms were navy blue and the white blouses required a peter pan collar. If the nuns thought your uniform was too short (kneel on the floor test), you were sent home to fix it!
If I ever finish reading “Girl on a Train”, I will start “The Guineveres”.
I look forward to every email from :Novel Visits”. I hope you have a monster audience.
Make it a great week!

You will definitely feel like you’re back in Catholic School!
