Books I’m “Currently Reading” On Goodreads

I swear whenever I do this post, the same books crop up again and again because I never actually finish them. Well, despite that I thought I would do an updated version to see how things have changed!

Goodreads currently says I am 4 books “behind schedule,” and this Easter I’m hoping to read a bunch. I’ve been in a reading slump for a while, so here’s hoping I can change that ASAP! I miss reading!

I currently have seven (!) books on my CR shelf, so here’s a little tour of that…

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

This has been on my currently reading for a few months, and I’m reading a specific copy that I’m actively writing in. I’ll finish this one sometime this summer, honest!

Facing Up and Facing the Frozen Ocean by Bear Grylls

My CR shelf wouldn’t feel like mine if I didn’t have this monster on it. It’s become an inside running joke with, uh, myself, since 2015.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

I have been reading this for a while now, and I’m determined to finish it soon! I’m about half way through it, I think, and I’m actually reading it for university so I need to get a jog on.

Autumn by Ali Smith

To be honest, I think I might DNF this book. It’s just not for me, but I’m almost exactly half way through it and I did find it really different… I don’t know. I have, however, actually been reading this since autumn.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

The difference between this one and the one before is that I’m actually really enjoying this one, and I can’t remember why I put it down! I definitely need to pick it back up again and finish it…

Flirtology by Jean Smith

This is an eARC from NetGalley (non-fic), and I really need to finish it! The reason I haven’t yet finished this one is because I transferred to a new phone, from where I was reading it, and haven’t yet downloaded it to my new one. I’ll get on it! Although, to be honest, I’m not really learning anything so it may be a DNF.

The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

WHY HAVE I NOT FINISHED THIS YET?! I do not know. I LOVED Moxie by the same author, and for some reason I just haven’t finished this one. It might be because I’m reading it on my phone, so I’m reading it slower and I’m less inclined to pick it up, but I really do want to finish it ASAP!

So there is an updated currently reading shelf tour from Goodreads! I’ve actually just started reading Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett too, so that might be making a late addition to this article… although I think I’d like to finish Alice first! My goal for the end of May is to have my currently reading down to 2 – my Bear Grylls’ book, and the book I’m actually reading!

What’s on your currently reading shelf? Do you have many, like me, or just one? Let me know in the comments! PS – follow me on Goodreads if you’d like to stay up with my out-of-control shelf!

Until the next time,

  1. It’s good to read that there is someone else that sometimes lets their CR shelf get a little out of control every once in a while. I really want to finally pick up Jane Eyre soon!

    1. Ahah my CR shelf is a mess… I’m hoping to get it down soon though, which means finishing a whole bunch of books! I’m actually really enjoying Jane Eyre, just put it down because other work got in the way 🙂
