It’s cool if I just write “What I’m Reading” posts from here on out, right? Because they seem to be all I can muster the motivation to write lately. Life changes, you guys! They’re hard.
I just got back to Buffalo after spending a week with my family. It was lovely; I got to spend an afternoon out on the boat, wander through a sculpture garden, go kayaking with a good friend, and spend some quality time with my sister. I even got a little reading in!
As impressed as I was with The Wake by Paul Kingsnorth, I had to set it aside this week. I just couldn’t give it the attention it deserved, and I fully intend to go back and finish it when things calm down a little bit. Instead, I picked up The White Queen by Philippa Gregory, because nothing says “light, fun read” like a novel about ambition, plots, and intrigue during the War of the Roses. It’s basically the same exact book as The Other Boleyn Girl but with more witchcraft, and I loved it.
I gave up on Authority by Jeff VanderMeer on audio. Thank you to everyone who assured me I wasn’t missing anything by DNF-ing the series. (Ha!) The next audiobook I chose turned out to be a much better choice. You lovelies were all right about Circling the Sun by Paula McLain; I’m only halfway through, but it is SO GOOD!
What are you reading this week?
