So far this month I’ve read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, both of which were fantastic. I’m currently reading The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell, which isn’t something I probably would have picked up without the numerous recommendations from trusted sources, but I’m loving it! Also, whenever I think “Jesuits in space” in connection to it, the “Jews in Space” song from A History of the World, Part 2 pops into my head. (I know it’s not a real movie). So, there’s that.
I’ve also taken a kind of accidental two-week break from blogging. I’ve just been feeling uninspired to write, so I’ve been totally neglecting this space. Thank goodness for a few pre-scheduled posts, so it hasn’t been completely quiet. It’s been a nice break, and now I’m coming back with gusto!
