It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Well, it certainly was a crazy week. Couple of weeks. This week, too. I haven’t had a free night after work at all! Now that my orchestra rehearsals are back in full swing my free reading time has become sadly limited. I’m still working my way through Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink (70% complete after two weeks… grr). But aside from the time issue I think I’m just having trouble with this one. I’m not sure if I’m slumping in general being busy or if I’m reading this at the wrong time. It’s interesting and compelling, just not as gripping as I expected.
This is Banned Books Week, too. While I do have a couple of banned books (Native Son, Sophie’s Choice) sitting on my shelves, I’m not sure I’ll be able to hold off on these two that just arrived at my house:
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay and Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood, baby! I’m really excited to read these two. I’d love to read something in line with Banned Books Week this year but I’m just not sure I’d have time to participate anyway—I bet I’ll still be working on Five Days at Memorial all week, honestly. I will definitely enjoy checking out participating blogs, though, and I hope you do, too!
