Phew..I survived this week. Have you ever had one of those weeks that are over-scheduled before they begin and then NOTHING goes as planned? Well, that was my week. I'm hoping this coming week is better, and it might be. My daughter has 2 days off school and I canceled a few appointments, but then the following week is supposed to be crazy busy again. I guess I'd better just accept this as my normal....sigh!
Right now, I'm reading:
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
I just started this last night, so I really can't say much about it yet. It is my last postal book club book of the year. I belong to two of these groups and it has really been great fun!
Heart-Shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis Graves
Another self-published book and another romance. A year ago, that would have been two strikes against this book, but I surprise myself. I will say that self-published books can be a chore to navigate, but there are some good ones out there.
Clementine by Sara Pennypacker
Because this week has been so crazy, we haven't been able to get my daughter in bed early enough to hear a chapter. Sigh....
The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore
I feel kind of guilty putting this on here week after week when I only read a few pages at a time. It isn't that the book is dull, it is just that I'm so tired by the time I roll into bed that I can't manage more than that...
Last week, I finished reading:
I actually shuffled some reviews around to get this one up sooner (I pushed The Wanderer back a few weeks). Oh, and there will be a giveaway!
This one was a hard, but rewarding read. I actually still have to write the review (again, busy week), but I think it might be a tricky one to do. We'll see how it turns out.
This was a quick phone read--I've found that on busy weeks, I get a lot of phone reading done. Romances are a genre that work well for this because they are easy to pick up and put down and can stand up to a lot of interruptions (in other words, great for reading in lines and waiting rooms....)
