New Week, New Book (11/13/17)
Hosted by The Book Date
As of right now, I'm still out of town; I'll be headed home a little later today and will be able to enjoy more reading time during the return trip. The weekend has been fantastic: I spent time with friends, had a great race (more on that later this week!), and...drum roll, please...I finally met my friend Sarah, of Sarah's Book Shelves, in REAL LIFE!
Sarah is even more lovely that I'd imagined; we had a wonderful afternoon chatting and, interestingly, we didn't spend much time talking about books. I hope that we get to meet up again soon!
Last week, I finished listening to Craig & Fred by Craig Grossi; this is such a wonderful story and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a light, feel good read. I think this will make a great holiday gift, too.
I also finished The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan; I absolutely loved it. I was completely drawn in to the stories of the women that are featured; I found myself looking forward to hearing more about their experiences and how they would respond to their ever-changing circumstances.
As I mentioned in my post last week, I was able to borrow a copy of the audiobook Unqualified by Anna Faris from my local library; since I've been out of town, I've not listened to much of it yet, but I do like what I've heard.
I started reading Code Girls by Liza Mundy on Thursday morning; I've had trouble staying interested lately, likely due to the excitement of my trip, but I'm hoping I can finish it up in the next few days.
Meanwhile, my library hold of Genuine Fraud, the new release from E. Lockhart (author of YA sensation We Were Liars), has come in and I only have three days left to read it - GAH! The pressure! I'm going to give it a go today and see if it's worth taking the time out from Nonfiction November; I've read some good reviews, but I want to find out for myself.
I hope you all have a great start to the week!
