If you want to join in the fun, just answer the three questions below about how your reading is going this week and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Don’t forgt to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!
WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?
I am nearly finished with the absolutely delightful Think Like a Monk. This book is excellent. I love it.
I have also picked up the biography of Milton Hershey this weekend at the library. Chocolate and philanthropy – I can’t resist!
And I am reading Greenlights because…I have absolutely no idea. This book is so ridiculous. I’m at the 30% mark and all I can think it that this book is impossible to read without hearing McConaughey’s accent in your mind.
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?
I managed another great week of reading. It still feels like a miracle after those slumps!
I read two middle grade books. I am trying to read 4-5 since I am supposed to be helping with the Cybil Awards and I am massively behind this week. Carry me Home and Thanks a Lot, Universe were both stunningly written. How do these author’s manage it? How are they able to fit all of those feelings into these stories? SO beautiful.
I also finally managed to pick up and read How to be Lovely by Melissa Hellstern. It was….okay. It had three quotes on each page and felt like a pocket sized coffee table book. I had such high expectations for this book too!
I picked up a NonFiction graphic novel, No Small Plans from the Chicago Architecture Center. I had been really excited to read this one because it is about the rebuilding of Chicago about the Great Fire. It bounced around a lot and I didn’t love the art work. Sigh. Another disappointment. It did make me curious about the plans that were drafted that were required reading for 8th grade graduation in Chicago for years.
I had low expectations for The Gift of Fear but I loved it. If you are searching for a short nonfiction book this one was so interesting to me. My full review is here.
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
Since I just finished my audiobook Gift of Fear I need to pick a new one. My library has delivered not one, but three, enticing options. I’m not sure which I will pick but I am excited about all three!
