It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Well, I finished Under the Dome by Stephen King for the DomeAlong (hosted by Coffee and a Book Chick) on Thursday last week (review post here) and kind of puttered around before I picked a new one. I just couldn’t decide on anything, and my mind was elsewhere, mostly on moving… which is what I did pretty much all weekend. No time to read much anyway.
However last night I made myself pick something, one of the few books I still had with me at my temporary summer home: The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer. Set mostly in New York City, The Interestings is about six friends who meet as teenagers at a New England summer camp for the arts in the 1970s, and chronicles the dynamic shifts in their relationships over the next three decades. The first chapter was a little long and I started getting worried it was too YA-ish… but then it totally grabbed me in chapters 2–3. Even though I still have a lot of moving stuff to take care of, I’m hoping to finish it by the end of the week.
