More Time for Reading Than I Thought

Long story short that will be explained in a different post, I’m not flying out to see M now until the 28th. While I am pretty upset that my little time with him is being cut short, I’m trying to see the positive. Currently the positive is that I can make my through some of the books I’ve snagged on sale from Kobo in the last couple of weeks! Whenever I fly I like to have a wide variety of books at my disposal, lest I end up sitting somewhere for hours. So, I’ve taken advantage of the sales where I can and grabbed quite a few!

 The Nest

The Nest, Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

This has been one of the biggest books of the year and I was apprehensive for months and months! I don’t know how I feel about the whole adult children dealio but I’m willing to give it a shot. I was unsure about a few different novels this year (The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes and Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, to name a few) and they really paid off. I am hopeful that this is another that really takes me away, especially when I’m sad and disappointed. I picked this up for $3.99 on Christmas Day in a Kobo sale, and I feel like it is more than a fair price for a bestseller. Have you read this, did you enjoy this?
Plum Pudding Murder

Plum Pudding Murder, Joanne Fluke

Joanne Fluke’s cozies are easy to read and I always love the recipes that are included with these. The only downfall is that they are typically $6-11, and I can read them in a few hours- a little expensive when you consider how quickly they are over. However, this was $0.99, so there really wasn’t a wrong choice here! If I don’t read this right now, I will eventually read it at some point, certainly not a waste!

Made for Me

Made for Me, Kathryn R. Biel

We all know by now that I love me some chick lit. Make it involve a fake royal family somehow and I’m already reading it! If you offer me this for $0.83, I will throw my money at you and download it immediately. I was planning on saving this for the plane ride but it might be cracked early in an attempt to improve my mood!
The One You Love

The One You Love, Paul Pilkington

I don’t typically read the suspense genre, it doesn’t appeal to me most of the time but this was a free book. It’s free, it takes place in London, and if I like it I’ve discovered a new trilogy/author. If I don’t like it, it was free and nothing was lost!

The Duchess of Windsor

The Duchess of Windsor, Greg King

I have a biography of the Duchess of Windsor that I keep meaning to read (That Woman) but it’s a physical book and not necessarily conducive to my every day life. This was an affordable ebook, $2.82, and the Goodreads reviews aren’t terrible. While I don’t particularly love the Duke and Duchess of Windsor (it’s selfishness at it’s height) I would like to read more about them. Who knows, perhaps this will change my mind?

Do you have any reading plans over the holidays? Did you receive any books for the holidays? 

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
