What Are You Currently Reading?
I’m currently reading too many books at the same time, but there’s so many good books out there I can’t help myself! I recently purchased The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré and am loving it. I’m pretty sure it will be a five-star read for me. It’s one of my favourite books so far for 2020. I’ll post a review once I’m finished it.
I also love that I have a hard copy of the book. E-books are a great way to access books, especially during COVID times and I really appreciate that I can access e-books through my library system and through Open Books and Net Galley and I’m also very attached to the hardcover and paperback versions. I just love the feel of holding a book and turning the pages, rather than staring at a computer screen.
I started reading Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi through my local library system. I was struck by Yaa Gyasi’s breathtaking prose from the opening paragraph. Her writing is simply beautiful! I’m looking forward to reading this book.
I’m re-reading Ann Voskamp’s The Broken Way–a beautiful, beautiful book! Also, I started the first few pages of The Ringmaster’s Daughter by Carly Schabowski because I only have a month left to read it for Net Galley.

I have some of these books on hold in e-book format, but I’m really hoping my library will open up for curb-side pickup soon! I also have a quite a few ARCs at Net Galley and three more books to read for Open Books. A lot of reading and I’m looking forward to it, especially now that I have some more time in the afternoons.
Have you read any of these books?
