It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
I had an AMAZING weekend of reading! I finished Wool by Hugh Howey on Saturday, and then yesterday I ended up reading TWO books: Unintimidated: Wisconsin Sings Truth to Power by various authors/photographers about the Solidarity Sing Along in response to Governor Scott Walker’s damaging, devastating agenda, and Bird Box by Josh Malerman. Unintimidated was short, more like an extended essay punctuated with lots of pictures, so I’m not surprised I was able to read it all in less than an hour. But OMG you guys. Bird Box. ~300 page book that I could NOT put down. I broke up my reading through the day (still had to get some housework etc. done!) but it was totally gripping and I just HAD to finish. So, with this weekend’s reading, after finally getting myself all caught up with review posts I find myself four behind again!
Late into the night last night after I finished Bird Box I decided to start We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver. I only read about 10 pages before falling asleep, and I have a confession that I did end up seeing the movie before reading (I didn’t know it was a book first when I saw the movie), but I’m still interested in finding out more on this story and I like Lionel Shriver’s writing after listening to her Big Brother on audio last year (my review). And of course, the book will be vastly different and I’ll probably end up liking it more than the movie anyway!
