Roommate Reading Challenge

One of my roommates and I went to the library before it shut down. We each got some books. I got a giant pile to see me through when they’re re-opening and probably a lot longer since my OWL Magical Readathon TBR includes exactly zero of them since I made it first.

On the way home I asked if she was actually planning on reading hers since I haven’t seen her read much. She responded with something along the lines of when she wants to read she’ll read a ton. Which is relatively normal for my friends. Well then she went on to say she could finish her four books she got in a week. I said I’d match that but I’m not promising all of them will be from that haul.

We agreed as an incentive that whoever completes the challenge will have the other person buy them either a coffee, cookie dough or ice cream when all this is over.

Her books were How to be Single, Circle of Blood, Anna Karenina and Jane Eyre. Needless to say, she didn’t finish them all. Which is actually really sad, I was hoping she’d surprise me. I, on the other hand, finished mine and I loved them all

Here are my reads:

The Conference of the Birds by Ransom Riggs

The newest one in the Miss Peregrine’s series. I’ve enjoyed all of the books in this series. My only complaint was that each one (including this one) starts in the middle of the action and because it’s a year between reading all of the I forget the ending and what’s happening.

One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I had been on the wait list for the e-book for 6 months now. And I finally got it and devoured this one just like her other books. Her writing was a lot more simplistic than the other ones and I thought for a second this may have been her first book ever. It also reminded me of Maybe in Another Life but on one timeline.

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

I’ve read every book by Riley Sager and I really can’t pick a favorite. I love how creative his plots are and then they go in directions I wasn’t expecting. This was no different and it felt so good to be back with his writing.

Down and Across by Arvin Ahmadi

This was on my TBR when it first came out and eventually I took it off but I was scrolling through Overdrive looking for a contemporary book to balance the week off and one that didn’t take too much thinking. This caught my eye again and I ended up loving it.

Does anyone want a library haul from what I got? What’s everyone been reading? Have you read any of these?
