How is January already halfway over? I feel like the year just started. Buffalo is really settling into winter, which is pretty, but THAT WIND. It’s not fun. Despite the weather (or perhaps because of it?) I’ve been doing some great … Continue reading
November was my worst reading month on record. I hit a major slump, couldn’t get into any of the books I was reading, and I barely read anything. I’m happy to report that I have Turned. Things. Around. this month. … Continue reading
Howdy bookworms! I don’t know how it’s already the middle of November. The other day, the boyfriend glanced at the calendar and realized that Thanksgiving is next week, and we both flipped out a little bit. It’s been a pretty … Continue reading
Happy mid-September, booklings! I can’t believe how quickly the weather has changed. Ten days ago, it still felt like summer. I was wearing shorts and tank tops and sipping summer IPAs. (It was glorious.) And then it was as if … Continue reading
Hello lovelies! You might have noticed the blog’s been pretty quiet this month. There is no real reason for this, except that I haven’t really felt like blogging. There was a time that this would really stress me out, but … Continue reading
How is July flying by so quickly? I feel like the summer just started, and it’s already half over. But I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks! In a few days I’ll be motoring up to Toronto to … Continue reading
It’s been kind of a strange reading month for me. BEA threw me off my game, and a head cold sandwiched between two weddings didn’t help me get back on track. Uncharacteristically, I’ve read not one, but TWO YA novels … Continue reading
Hello booklings! I’m extremely happy to report that it’s finally feeling like spring here in Buffalo! After a few days of glorious weather last week (during which I got to spend a perfect hour reading and drinking beer on the patio of my favorite bar) it rained like crazy, and now, in the last few days, there has been a positive explosion of leafy growth. There’s nothing better than the sight of brand new leaves on the trees lining my street.
It’s also been a pretty great reading month so far! I loved An Untamed State by Roxanne Gay, couldn’t put Brain on Fire down, and enjoyed Midsummer, a novella I read for TLC Book Tours. And now I’m reading The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer! I’m loving it so far and can’t wait to meet Ms.Wolitzer herself at BEA in a few weeks! Amid all of these great reads was one book I didn’t like: The Quick by Lauren Owen. It wasn’t at all what I was expecting, and although I tried to be open-minded, I just didn’t enjoy it.
What have you been reading this month?
Happy Saturday, readerkins! It’s a little later than I had planned, but I’m checking in with a quick mid-month reading update. So far this month I’ve read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and All the Light We Cannot See by … Continue reading
Happy Monday lovelies! Just thought I’d check in with an update on my recent reading. I’ve been working my way slowly through The Blazing World by Siri Hustvedt and Byron Easy by Jude Cook. They’re both very good books, but somehow neither of … Continue reading
