Friday Reads | 10th June

Just a quick Friday Reads post from me today where I’ll share what I plan to read this Friday and into the weekend ahead.


It will be no surprise to learn that I’m still working my way through A Game of Thrones (slow but steady wins the race, right?) for the #readasoiaf readalong and I plan to continue this weekend. I have to say that the colouring in circles for each chapter method really does work, I feel like I’m making progress! Actually, since we’re being optimistic, I hope to finish it this weekend but with 250ish pages left, we’ll see how it goes. 

I also have a book to read for review: Lara Williams’ Treats. It’s a short story collection (something I don’t ready nearly enough of) but it seems to be focuses around the trials and tribulations of life as an emerging adult in the twenty first century. It’s promising considering the first story starts with the person (you, as it’s addressed to) graduating university and moving back home with their parents. I know a little something of that feeling… so I hope it proves to be authentic and relatable as the blurb claims it is!

The third book I might dip into is Paul Kalanithi’s When Breath Becomes Air. I feel like this book needs no introduction since it’s been everywhere but in case you missed it so far then it’s a memoir of Paul Kalanithi who was just about to complete his neurosurgery training when he was diagnosed with lung cancer, so it’s a look into the doctor-patient relationship, and about facing up to the fact of our mortality, and what it means to live life. Or so the summary and numerous quotes of praise claim. I’m sure that will be the case.

So those are the books I will hopefully be reading today and this weekend. What are you reading at the moment? Have you any weekend plans, reading-related or otherwise? Have you read any of the books I’m planning to read – what did you think? Share below!
