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.
It’s my last week at work, so it’s going to be jam-packed with shit I need to get done before I leave and all of the feelings. It’s going to be hard not to be working with these people, and I am not close to being mentally prepared to leave.
In bookish news, I finished reading The Girls by Emma Cline, and it was okay, but it didn’t blow me away and I wasn’t hooked. I’m also reading Locke & Key by Joe Hill that my friend L so generously loaned me, and it is such a good series. Joe Hill has got serious world-building and storytelling skills. My goal for the rest of August is to finish as many paper ARCs as I can so that I can donate them or give them away to friends before I leave Chicago. I don’t think I’ll finish them all, but I am going to try.
On the roster for this week:
Yes I totally did buy The Underground Railroad the day it came out. I’d only read a couple of chapters a few months ago and then set it aside to read just before it was supposed to come out. Oprah kinda put the kibosh on me finishing the ARC on time, but I forgive her.
Looking forward to seeing what you guys are reading this week!
