It’s Tuesday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Yes, it’s Tuesday! I kept feeling like yesterday was Tuesday, and today was Wednesday. I must just be excited about going to the Royals game tomorrow 🙂 Anyway, yesterday I shared my Bout of Books 14 wrap-up post. I would have liked to accomplish more but at least I was able to finish one book and participate in some challenges and half a Twitter chat.
So yes, last week I finished An Untamed State by Roxane Gay. I was really hooked but it wasn’t quite the earth-shaking, life-changing stunner I was expecting (stupid hype!!). Still, it was really, really good and will probably rank up there with one of the best books I read this year. Review coming soon!
I was going to start City on Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg… I have an ARC and since it’s being released in October (and it’s 900-some pages) I thought I better get going on it. I fully admit to being intimidated by the page count and hesitant to dive in because of that. But, my husband asked me to read Stephen King’s The Long Walk before he leaves next week for a month-long residency in Washington (state) so we can talk about it—he read it earlier this year and I love it when he wants to “book club” with me!
What are you reading this week?
