CURRENTLY READING | 022


Now that I'm well and truly over my reading slump (YAY!), I'm keen to get back into blogging, especially my participation in 'It's Monday! What Are You Reading?'.

This week I've started reading Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs - I haven't actually finished the entire series of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children just yet, however this title is an accompanying book to the world, not the plot as such. Tales of the Peculiar is a collection of short stories, and I've been enjoying dipping in and out of them.

As well as this physical book, I've also been reading some of the review books I have lined up on my Kindle. I've got a bunch of titles for the summer months and am currently reading Secrets of Southern Girls by Haley Harrigan, which is proving to be a mysterious read so far.

I do have bookmarks in a few other books from when I was flitting around with books during my reading slump, however these two titles are the ones I'm focusing on this week.

  3. I love story collections! Every time I read one, I tell myself I should have one going more often alongside longer reads, but it doesn't always happen! Happy to hear the slump is history :)

    1. They're great for having on hand and dipping in and out of... I probably have too many on the go at the moment! Happy reading!

  4. I loved Miss Peregrine and have been wanting to go back and finish the series for some time. This sounds like an addition to the collection that I'd really enjoy and I love that it's a companion to the series and not part of the series.

  6. One of these days I'll have to read Miss Peregrine. It sat on my TBR mountain for a while but left when I was purging books to take to my school media center. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  7. I want to read some of those Cecelia Ahern books....I'm way behind on hers. I'm fascinated by the whole Miss Peregrine series, but I haven't bought any of the books yet.

    Secrets of Southern Girls looks like fun.

    Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  9. Good to hear you have your reading mojo back on, sometimes I think a good rest from books brings back the love. Enjoy the ones on for now.

  10. Tales of the Peculiar sounds neat, I like the idea of short stories. They're nice for a quick read when you're short on time, or just want a break. And I haven't read the Peregrines books yet either, but I think I might (and I do want to see the movie).

    Have a great week!

  11. Oh, I love that cover! I don't often read short stories, though I really ought to give them more of a try, they'd be the perfect choice for my limited reading time!

    1. Short stories are great when you don't have much time to read; I'd recommend checking some out. And yes! I love the cover! Happy reading.

  13. So glad you are over your slump! It's been madness here, and I am trying to catch up with everyone! :)

    The Ransom Riggs book looks awesome!
