Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

 I could say something about how quickly the end of the month came upon us, but I actually think January did not speed past like most of the months do. It was a busy month, but it did not seem like we were so busy that we got no downtime. It was rather nice.
How about you? Did January speed past for you?


The Possessions by Sara Flannery Murphy The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber The Dressmaker's Dowry by Meredith Jaeger

Sara Flannery Murphy’s debut novel is a subtle one. She keeps the details hazy, so that one is reading the book through the fog of Eurydice’s eyes as well as those of Sylvia. It is going to require some more thought on whether I actually enjoyed it.

I finally finished the Michel Faber on audio. Sadly, I should have stuck with my original assessment of the print version and ditched it. The experiment was a success though in validating my instincts when I do DNF a book!

The Meredith Jaeger novel is another one I probably should have DNF’d. It is everything I do not enjoy in women’s fiction. I felt guilty though since it was one of the rare occasions where the publisher reached out to me and I actually said I was interested.


The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen

It just so happened this was the next one on my review list. Timely.


Shrill by Lindy West

Empowered AF.


Universal Harvester by John Darnielle

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate how awesome this cover is? I’m actually glad I have an e-galley because if I had a print copy with that cover, I would do nothing but stare at the cover.

So, what are you reading?
