Hello, hello! I am here today, my dear Nonexistent Reader, to do a reading forecast when in reality all I want to do is crawl back into bed and get some of that elusive sleep. Alas, the day is passing entirely too quickly and I need to get more productive than I am being. So I started revising le thesis novel (la novel?) and away went my reading time. Actually, I’m reading a book that’s sucking away my enthusiasm for reading because it’s an intense novel that is gory and I requested it for review without know what it was all about so now I’m going to have to grit my teeth and finish it. It’s not a bad novel; just way out of my comfort zone.
Anyway, last week I read:
Light Boxes – Shane Jones
Interestingly done. Rather sparse but effective.
The World’s Wife – Carol Ann Duffy
Fun and poignant. Hits the mark in all the right ways at all the right times.
Heroes Return – Moire J. Moore
Dunleavey ticked me off in this one, to the extent that I found myself disliking the book. So I’m skipping the next one in the series and heading straight to the final book.
Why We Broke Up – Maira Kalman, David Handler
Interesting. A bit different but the prose style was a bit dense.
Plan to read?
This is the one. If I can get this one done in a week, I’ll call myself a happy reader.
Those are my plans. What are yours?
