Hindsight this week

I finished You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me by Sherman Alexie and The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead this week.  It was a slow reading week for me, with a lot going on at work, unfortunately, that kept me out of my book.  I’m almost done with Emma in the Night but wound up being glutened last night so my plan to finish it last night was derailed and I wound up going to bed super early.

I was also remarkably restrained with my kindle books and only bought So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, an MMD flight pick for October.  At the library I picked up The Blinds, a BOTM pick last month, and A Kind of Freedom–right before it received its National Book Award Nomination.   I got Crossing to Safety and American Fire on Kindle from the library as well, but those due dates are sort of flexible.  (Thanks Airplane Mode).

Foresight this week

I should finish Emma in the Night today and then I really need to decide what to read.  I’ve got Fraulein M. (can’t renew again), Crossing to Safety (being discussed at MMD book club in less than two weeks), The Blinds (not due for two weeks but has holds so can’t renew), and A Kind of Freedom (same).   #FirstWorldProblems.

Have opinions on what I should read next?  I’d love to hear them.

I'd love to hear from you <3
