Hindsight this Week

This week was a pretty good reading week.  I finished Girl in Snow (which wasn’t what I expected) and am almost done with Girls Made of Snow and GlassGirls Made of Snow and Glass is a feminist retelling of Snow White–I’m loving it and looking forward to reviewing it on the blog this week.  I finished Born a Crime in audio and started The Color PurplePurple is read by the author and while I think the voice and pitch are spot-on, it’s not an easy book to follow on audiobook.  It’s short and I need the book for one of my challenges this year, so I’m continuing with it.  Reading a plot synopsis made what’s going on make more sense, so that will hopefully minimize my confusion going forward.


I did not visit the library except to return books this week!  I know.  It makes me sad too…but my TBR breathed a sigh of relief.

One of my favorite bloggers is co-facilitating a new book club that absolutely everyone should check out.  Diverse Books Club is reading three books for our inaugural month in September–I’ve been meaning to read one, have already read another, and hadn’t heard of the third.  I’m super excited to see how this group works out.  You can check out more info about why this group is necessary and our books for September at Top Shelf Text’s post on the club here.  (Photo Credit Top Shelf Text).

Foresight for the coming week

Since I should finish Girls Made of Snow and Glass today, I’ll likely start either Savage the Bones or Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.  As I mentioned last week, I got an ARC of Jessamyn Ward’s soon-to-be-published Sing, Unburied, Sing, so I’m thinking I’ll go back and read her first novel and then review the two of them in the same week before Sing comes out.

Have suggestions for what I should read next? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

I'd love to hear from you <3
