I think that I am just about done with the 2016 Reading Challenge, and I perhaps could’ve wrapped it all up this month with one book, but I haven’t read a new book since her royal spyness. Ive started 5 different new books and that goes nowhere really fast. I can’t drum up enough feeling to care about the new characters and stories. At first I thought maybe this was depression, but I think I’m just tired. Falling asleep before 3am is a gift these days, so I go throughout the day like a zombie. I have read books, but just ones I’m already very familiar with. It doesn’t take as much brain power I guess. Anyway – here are a few of the books I acquired in August. I hope to be finished with 3 by October. Just three, that seems attainable. So hopefully by next month I’ll have something to report.
Right now I’m muddling through Everything We Keep, The Night Circus and Queen Sugar right now. Uninvited is my devotional for this month. And you can enter to win a free kindle copy here. The giveaway ends Tomorrow.
The loving arms of literature has been comforting to me in the past few weeks. Ive bought about 5 books, but I find myself picking up books that I’ve already read.
I did dig into Shrill by Lindy West. It was heavy no pun intended. I feel like there will people who identify and people who do not. She put words to so much of what I have lived. It was strange that someone else was relating some of my experiences growing up. I so often felt alone. Hmm, Perhaps these days people might understand a little more the words just because you haven’t experienced it does not mean it does not exist or is not true..but maybe not. Either way, you should not be a jerk to people and deny someone’s experience.
Ive also been able to get my hands on the latest Royal Spyness Mystery – which almost always comes out around my birthday. Visiting with Georgie is usually fun, but it’s a bit tedious right now.
