New Week, New Book (3/5/18)

Hosted by The Book Date

Good Monday morning, to you; I hope you all had a nice weekend. I spent the majority of my time this weekend with friends and running teammates who arrived to participate in the Little Rock Marathon and its associated races (5K, 10K, half marathon); I probably have more fun getting excited for others' races, and cheering them on, than I do my own races. Cheering is definitely easier than racing!

Even though the weather did not cooperate for marathon day yesterday (there were quite a few rainy miles - ugh!), I think everyone enjoyed themselves. This weekend will be my turn to race; I'm a little nervous, but really excited, and I may post more about that later...we'll see how the week unfolds.

On to the reading!

Last week, I devoured Bachelor Nation by Amy Kaufman; I'll post a review this week so, as Chris Harrison says on the show, stay tuned. I have to admit that I am super excited to see the episodes tonight and tomorrow night; I read spoilers, but I'm not sure how it will all unfold...the drama! 

Panorama is a debut novel by Steve Kistulentz; the description interested me, so I requested a copy. While it wasn't exactly what I'd expected, his writing is impressive and I love the way in which he focuses on the characters rather than the "main" event (no spoiler, it's in the description - a plane crash) around which the story is centered. 

My cheesy romance audiobook streak continues with Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover; again, this mindless, predictable material is perfect for a commute after a stressful day and long runs during half marathon training. 

Up next:

As I type this, on Sunday evening, I'm really torn about which of these novels to begin; until a few weeks ago, I had been quite excited to read both Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao and The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian. Unfortunately, these have both been read by a few of my trusted book loving friends and they were unimpressed. I think I'll start with The Flight Attendant and hope for the best.

What are you reading? How was your weekend?
