Ahhhh–another Sunday! Unfortunately, this Sunday will not involve me laying around reading and being a lazy bones (is it just me or does it seem like I never get that luxury anymore?!). Hopefully I will get at least a little bit of reading done though! I feel like my reading has been declining a bit recently and I hope to remedy it soon. I read two books this week, which isn’t terible. Yellow Jack, by Josh Russell and Secondhand Smoke, by Patty Friedmann. Both are set in New Orleans, which is where I am getting married this month. I hope to read one, maybe two other books set in NO before my wedding, so we’ll see!
I was able to go to the library yesterday and pick up a bunch of holds that I had. I’ve been checking less and less books out recently trying to get through the ones I already have out, not to mention all the books I have at home, so it’s been awhile since I came back from the library with a full load. I have been meaning to get into graphic novels in the past few months but I have only read French Milk so far, so I went ahead and checked out a boatload of graphic novels. Please share your thoughts if you’ve read any of these books!
The Likeness, Tana French
Shortcomings, Adrian Tomine
Wildly Romantic: The English Romantic Poets: The Mad, the Bad and the Dangerous, Catherine Andronik
Columbine, David Cullen
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, Alison Bechdel
Case Histories, Kate Atkinson
As you can see, I also got a lot of novels and books that aren’t graphic. I got The Likeness and Case Histories because I have been yearning for a good mystery since reading The Girl That Played with Fire. The crappy part is that I want to read all my new acquisitions NOW!!
As for everyone else, I hope you enjoy your Sunday 🙂
