June 20th, 2016: It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme currently hosted by The Book Date. It’s a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week, and add to that ever-growing TBR stack.

Hello hello!

FINALLY a week where I got some reading done. Last week, I finished Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi which I loved, The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, which I was very apprehensive about and surprisingly enjoyed, and Shrill: Notes From A Loud Woman by Lindy West which had me in tears from a myriad of emotions. 

Over the weekend, some friends and I got together for a day trip to Indianapolis, primarily to visit Books & Brews. Beer is cheaper in the rest of the Midwest, you guys. We had such a good time, and were really annoyed that we missed going to the Vonnegut Library. Oh well.

Here’s what’s on the roster for this week:

 

What have you guys been reading?

  1. I enjoyed Stiff, but liked Roach’s Gulp even more. I want to read all of her books now.

    The Shore i son my TBR. I’ve heard so many good things.

    I am just starting Fables Vol. 8. New to graphic novels/comics, and Gin Jenny recommended Fables to me. I’ve enjoyed them so far!

    Plan to also begin Marlon James’s Book of Night Women this week.

  2. You have some awesome books going on right now (and coming up). The Shore is great – make sure to take notes on all the people and connections in the beginning…it gets hard to follow. I loved Stiff and, like you, surprisingly enjoyed The Nest…solid light read. Have a great week!
