Today I’m linking up with Kathryn at The Book Date to share what I’m reading this week.
Last week my husband informed me that he would be out of town the entire week for work. After I regained consciousness and was informed that he had already told me this about five times (I just wasn’t listening), I called my mommy. Using the baby as bait, I convinced my mom to fly half-way around the country to hang out with me for a week. Sure, I could handle three kids by myself for a whole week. But do I want to? Heck no! Plus, I haven’t seen my mom since the baby was born in June, so it’s about time for a visit.
I still feel like a tourist in the Twin Cities, so I’m looking forward to doing a little bit of exploring while she’s here.
In addition to lots of reading…
the hubs and I binge watched Stranger Things on Netflix last week. I really don’t like scary stuff, but I love that show. The amount of 80’s montages makes my life complete!
As I mentioned in my last post, Netflix just released the TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace. The show looks awesome, but I really want to read the book first. I haven’t seen the book yet, but if it’s by Atwood I can already tell you it’s going to be over 500 pages. I just finished a dense-ish book, so I’m not sure if I’m ready to take that on yet.
Here’s what I’m reading…
This was a great read. Spence’s letters to books she has read were insightful, informative, touching, and hilarious. I loved this book until Part 2 where she started recommending books. Not as fun to read, so I kind of skipped through the last 75 pages.
I almost put this in my “just finished” category because I have about thirty pages to go. This is a great book to read after Americanah. I felt like a needed a beach and a mojito because this is the perfect light read. I got a little tired reading about how rich everyone was, but the story was entertaining. I also liked how the story was about a culture different from my own. I love a fresh perspective.
