August 15th, 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.

It’s my last day at work, and I was feeling blue about it all through the weekend. I didn’t feel like reading any of the books I started last week, so I ended up finishing Monstress Volume 1 by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda, which is creepy and awesome, and forced myself to finish at least one book- If This Isn’t Nice, What Is? by Kurt Vonnegut, which was okay. I have a few major things to do before I leave, and hoping to meet with as many people as I can before I fly out, so I’m not sure how much reading I will get done. Meanwhile, I’m trying to get through at least these:

My first check-in for Social Justice Book Club is going to be a few days late, but I will make it happen.

More later 🙂

  1. Monstress must go on my must-read Graphic novels! I’m getting better about reading at least 1 every week now, so I’m very proud of myself. Now I have to make sure I don’t run out.
    The New Jim Crow sounds excellent. I will be sure to read your post answering the excellent discussion questions as well.

    Hope your last day at work went well. ❤

  2. Hugs for your feelings of blueness!

    I actually got my Jim Crow check-in post up on time, and ideally I’d like to finish the book this week and get some thoughts together for the final posting. But I am afraid that’s going to be a pipe dream and not a reality. NONFICTION TAKES LONG TO READ.

  3. I’ll be interested to hear how The Nix is…it’s been so hyped, but I haven’t heard from any bloggers I follow yet.
