I decided that since so many of you would be enjoying one more day in a long weekend, it might be nice to check in and ask: what are you reading? Because even though it is probably beautiful and sunny where you are, you are reading on your day off, right? Right?!
It’s OK, I’m probably not reading right now either. I’m most likely working on putting a home back together or trying to get organized to move. However, I’m happy to report that the reading slump I went through earlier in the year is over and I’ve read a lot of great things recently, including Neverhome which was a 5 star book for me. Here’s what I’m reading this Monday and what lies ahead this week.
It has been so long since I’ve read Judy Blume but who can ever forget Are You There God? ? The first time I read a book where I thought, ‘this person knows me’ and at that age, that’s what matters most. Imagine my excitement to see that her latest, In the Unlikely Event, is for adults. I’m really hoping this is a good as it looks.
All the Birds, Singing came out last year and while I saw a lot of great reviews about I didn’t get a chance to read it. Now it is going to be discussed at The Socratic Salon on June 10th so I thought the time was right to try it. Especially based on the reviews of blogger I trust like River City Reading, and The Steadfast Reader.
I don’t know much about The Unfortunates but the blurb sounded like it might be the kind of light reading to kick off the summer.
