i am a reader now!
i was just reviewing a previous post from a year ago about my summer’s reading list.
you want to know what i actually finished?
ahem….here i go:
the ENTIRE harry potter series
bettle and the bard
the world to come. a novel.
now, the first 3 are easy. young adult fiction. goes down like yummy tasting cough syrup. not much brain used, not much brain lost.
then i venture into an uber fancy book club. with people who read like big-people books.
first, i read the help and really liked it. it is a wonderful summer read if you are looking for something quick and escape-like.
i just finished the world to come: a novel. it was a very fancy book. full of big words and suggestive situations and well, you know. grown-up stuff. i really did like it. it had amazing statements and lines that i could (and might) quote again and again. i am anxious for my fancy book group to talk about it.
i would like to share the rest of my summer reads, but it may just be 100 degrees in my office. i am beginning to sweat in places a fancy person doesn’t share about.
