It's Moooonday, it's Moooonday. I'm actually grading papers right now, which makes it fortuitous that I remembered to pre-draft this post!
I have finished a whopping TWO books this week, which for me really is whopping. I finally got over last week's case of the gobbledybooks and found some focus.
FinishedThe Regional Office is Under Attack! by Manuel Gonzales: Totally fun, rip-roaring, assassiny good time. I'll be reviewing this one here on the blog tomorrow.
13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad: Another winner! I loved these connected short stories, and I'll have a BookTube review to share this week.
Reading NowThe Twelve by Justin Cronin: Heather was kind enough to send me her ARC of City of Mirrors because she's not caught up with the series, so I figured I'd BETTER get caught up with the series! I'm ripping through this one. I was a little worried about how much time has passed (exactly six years) since I read The Passage, but I feel totally with it.
Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link: I can't read these fantasy and magical realism stories in quick succession. I am really enjoying them, but they're fairly long, and I need to digest in between.
NextIn the Country of Last Things by Paul Auster: Since I've wrapped up the Clean Your Reader challenge, I'm going to focus on the physical books involved in #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks. This Auster novel is fairly short, and the first few pages grabbed me with its post-apocalypticness.
Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, 1953 by Elizabeth Winder: Something different! I haven't read any nonfiction in a while, and as a preventative to a potential slump, I'm going to throw this one into the mix. It's been beckoning for a while.
What are you reading and loving?
