On the Night Table : Life Lately
Devolution by Max Brooks | Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell | The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel | Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau | The Chain by Adrian McKinty | The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
It's been a hot minute. I know I haven't done this in a while, but I thought I'd share some of the books I'm challenging myself to finish this week. With the aid of my Libby, I found three of these books on audio that I went and borrowed from the library. They are: Devolution, The Glass Hotel, and The Chain. So I'm anticipating that I can finish these books before the week is through.
I have no problem reading these books in no time; the challenge comes from actually sitting down and writing my thoughts about them. So I've started writing down preliminary thoughts on my journal so I at least have a jumping board when I find the time to write a review.
I'm hoping this will help me catch up on reviews. I'm really bad at it, only compounded with the lack of motivation to blog. Way too many things going on in my personal life at the moment, as well I can't help but feel for the Afghan people trying to flee their country. It's hard not get affected, to be honest. Sometimes, no matter how hard I try not to watch the news, I can't help it.
My province has officially opened things up, so I'm back to working full time as opposed to working 32 hours/week. Which I'm kinda sad about because I actually loved being off half the day on Thursdays and Fridays. But, it's all good. I'm looking forward to being back to the full time grind. My family and I will continue to wear masks in public spaces, even though all of us are double vaxxed. I just feel safer that way.
That's my life update for now. Wish me luck I don't abandon ship again.
Happy reading, friends!
