Week In Review

July 23 – 29

Sunday again? This week went by slowly but the weekend flew by! At least I only have a three-day workweek coming up. I’m taking some vacation days at the end of the week because I’m going to see Taylor Swift with my BFF and I’m so excited!

I discovered Longreads this week, and I don’t know how I haven’t heard of it before, but I love it.  It collects long-form journalism and essays from all around the internet, and I believe they produce their own as well. I’ve been reading a ton of the pieces on the site, and it’s been particularly handy on my bus rides to and from work.

New books:

I used my last birthday gift card and purchased some ebooks that I’ve had my eye on for a while and that were on sale:

In a Cottage in a Wood, Cass Green;

The Wangs vs the World, Jade Chang; and

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore, Kim Fu.

Books read:

I have not been reading much this week. I’ve been watching a lot of TV (the Tour de France; finally catching up on watching Elementary) and reading a lot of pieces from Longreads, and I just haven’t made time for reading books.

I did manage to finish one of my library books though: Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn.

Current reads:

I’m still reading Kendare Blake’s Three Dark Crowns. I really like the concept but it’s taking me a long time to get through it.

And I started Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening, by Marjorie Liu.

Reviews:

I posted two reviews on the blog this past week: my sister’s cozy mystery review of Ginger Bolton’s Survival of the Fritters, and my review of Jennifer Wolfe’s creepy Watch the Girls.

I also shared my Waiting on Wednesday pick, Kate Morton’s upcoming The Clockmaker’s Daughter.

 I have time for a little bit of reading and some coffee before watching the final stage of the Tour de France. Happy Sunday!
