It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Oh so close, you guys! I just about finished reading Moloka’i by Alan Brennert. I have about 50 pages to go… I really wanted to finish this weekend but had a ton of other “real life” things to catch up on, like oh you know, house work and errands. Sigh! Anyway, I’m enjoying it a lot and each page goes by quickly when I actually have the time to read, so I’m sure I’ll finish today or tomorrow. Review post coming later this week!
After that, I plan to start The Sun and Other Stars by Brigid Pasulka. I won an ARC Goodreads giveaway of this and I’m excited to start it! The cover alone gives me good vibes, dreaming of an Italian vacation, and I know it probably has nothing to do with Jess Walter’s Beautiful Ruins but the cover photo on The Sun and Other Stars sure looks a lot like Manarola, the same town used for the cover of Walter’s book. If my copy of Beautiful Ruins wasn’t in storage I would have to do a side-by-side comparison! Night vs. day, different angles of the shots, etc. I also read a stellar review by Jennifer at the Relentless Reader, and she has me convinced 🙂
