Weekly Reads: April 8th


Last week I skipped posting about my weekly reads because I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to launch my April reading. I ended up settling on reading CALL ME STAR GIRL by Louise Beech and THE RINGMASTER by Vanda Symon. Both were fantastic and just what I needed to get me in a good groove for this month!

Adding to that was the audiobook for DAISY JONES AND THE SIX. It’s a full cast production, which I’ve never experienced before. If you’re still debating this book, highly recommend the audio! I still have a little under 2 hours left, but didn’t include this book in my photo for the week.

It was sadly a case of not meeting my monthly over-the-top reading goals that stopped me from getting to this book. Well I am officially changing that! This book launched straight into a Fargo-esque story and I am loving every moment of it! I’m planning to be done with it soon since it’s incredibly bingeable.

This week I’ll also be tackling THE MISSING YEARS by Lexie Elliott, which was on my list of anticipated releases. I never read THE FRENCH GIRL last year, but so many rave reviews swirled around for Elliott’s writing that when I saw she had a new book coming out, I knew I needed to jump on the bandwagon.

I wavered back and forth what to listen to on my commute post-Daisy Jones and finally decided I wanted to check a backlist title off my shelves. I came across this ARC copy of UNRAVELING OLIVER totally by chance last year and never started it. I read Nugent’s LYING IN WAIT last year via audiobook and it was a great experience, so I’m hoping I’ll strike gold again this time around!

  1. I just finished Daisy Jones and the Six in physical book form but I’m REALLY intrigued by the audiobook. I feel like it may be one I actually can sit through because it just… reads like it’d be great in audio form? Plus, I’m intrigued by the full cast! Also, I’m about to start my eARC of The Missing Years either this week or next, hopefully! Hope you enjoy it!

    1. Yes!! I flipped through the book to understand how it was broken down before starting the audio and you’re completely right! It’s really smoothly transitioned between characters and they tell you who they are so you don’t get lost 😂 100% recommend it!

      I’m really excited for The Missing Years! I hope you enjoy it too! ☺️


  2. Read Daisy and I’m now listening to the audiobook. I’m loving the readers for Karen & Camila but not too sure about Daisy and Billy 🤷‍♀️IDK what do you think. All the other readers are good
