Hi there! I’m sure I’m a new “face” to a lot of you but I’ve been around for a while! I blogged at The Introverted Reader from 2009 – 2016 but life got busy and I lost that domain. Life has changed again and I found myself missing my book blog, so I’m reacquainting myself with the community! You can read more about where I’ve been and what’s going on now in my post, Back to Blogging!
In addition to my Back to Blogging! post, I reviewed:
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins–2 Stars
The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin–3.5 Stars
One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley, read by Thérèse Plummer and Michael Crouch
How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny Odell–I’m going to Did Not Finish this one. I’ve had it for about six weeks altogether and I’m maybe 50 pages in. This author and I just don’t think in the same ways so I find her writing almost impossible to wade through. My attention span since COVID-19 has been almost nonexistent anyway (ironically enough), so it’s probably just me.
Hiking Oregon’s History: The Stories behind Historic Places You Can Walk to See by Michael L. Sullivan–A friend recommended these hiking guides to me when she found out my husband and I were going to be in Oregon. I had to return this one before finishing it but I placed a hold on it so that I can continue it when it’s available again.
I’m not sure. I should be finishing (or giving) up on all of my current reads soon. I have a hold on Eleven on Top by Janet Evanovich that should be available in a few days. I don’t have any idea which audio or nonfiction books I’ll be in the mood for next. We’ll see what happens when I start looking!
What did your week look like?
