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?

Another whirlwind week has passed, another whirlwind week has begun. It. is. WILD. Adulting. Is. NOT. FUN.

I am going to stop saying “I can’t believe it’s _______ (insert month) already! Where did the time go?” because this is a thing that happens every month and I’m basically in a constant state of overwhelmed at the moment. I will be posting my May recap/wrap-up post later today, but I quickly wanted to get this post out before it got buried under my most giant of all giant to-do lists. 

Let’s see. The last 10 days have kinda been terrible for reading, mostly because I barely read anything. However, I did finish Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On, which was such a delight to read, and I now need to go back and read Fangirl at some point. I’m still trying to get my life in order (I need to essentially Kondo every aspect of my life at the moment), but this is what I have going on in terms of books:

Pretty stoked about all of these. Annnnd that’s all the time I have right now, but now that last week is over I will definitely be more active on all of the social media platforms to talk and squee about all of the books!

Ooh boy, this past weekend was glorious. All I did was stay home, read, not wear a bra, read, wine and dine, read, and bookternet like the introvert that I am (apologies for the play-by-play on Snapchat, y’all). It was GLORIOUS. Like I’d mentioned earlier, I’ve had so many social things happening in the last couple of weeks that I was desperate for some quiet, stay-at-home time, to read in peace.
