What a reading weekend! It seems to be the case lately that I barely read during the week...maybe at lunch sometimes, and then I binge read on the weekends while Greyson is with his dad. This arrangement works fine for me when it comes out like it did this week.
This weekend I finished:
Could there be two more different books? Probably not. I enjoyed Annihilation, by Jeff VanderMeer, the first in the Southern Reach trilogy so so so much. The Testament of Mary by Colm Toibin was a good read, but less successful than Annihilation.
I also gulped down a bunch of comics...
Edward Scissorhands is quickly becoming a favorite. I mentioned in an earlier post that it's a continuation of the film rather than an adaptation. Edward teams up with Kim's (from the movie) granddaughter Megs to help reign in an invention gone wrong.
Batgirl #39 and Lumberjanes #11 are a delight as always, and Bitch Planet #3 continues to win me over.
What's next you ask?
I've wanted to try James Baldwin for a while. I had Another Country out from the library, but it was due back, so I'm jumping in with Giovanni's Room. The writing is gorgeous already, just a few pages in, so I'm excited to continue. And I just can't resist the lure of Hausfrau any longer!
