It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
You guys! I did it. I finished Margaret Atwood’s The Blind Assassin over the weekend. Although I’m glad I made it all the way through, that took entirely too long! Phew. I have some mixed feelings about it… review coming later this week.
Other good news: I think I may have gotten my reading mojo back! Over Saturday and Sunday I read half of Wool by Hugh Howey. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic future where a community of humans have lived in a giant underground silo for (possibly) centuries, following a strict set of rules. The punishment for those who don’t follow the rules is simple enough: you are sent outside to clean the silo’s exterior camera lenses. But no one ever comes back from a cleaning. Why? What’s really happening here?
I got this from the library for my husband to read (he has been interested in dystopian fiction lately), and I thought I’d read a little to see how it is. So far I’m (obviously) enjoying it! I think I might even be able to finish it in the next few days. After that I have a short book borrowed from my mother about the Solidarity Singers in Wisconsin, titled Unintimidated: Wisconsin Sings Truth to Power (the title is a shot at Governor Scott Walker’s memoir title) and I got Bird Box by Josh Malerman in the mail (also for Nick… but I’m not sure I can resist!) so I’ll probably move onto those after Wool.
