The past week has been an interesting one, both difficult and uplifting in many ways. I’m proud of the women (and men) who were willing to take a stand and march. I envied the women who were able to do so with their daughters. I think the next four years are going to be a challenging, but amazing time in our nation’s history and I hope that we emerge whole and strong.
Last Week’s Read:
I finished The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker and am happy to report that it’s my favorite book so far this year! This story of a powerful friendship between two talented animators was far more than I had expected. I’ll be reviewing Whitaker’s wonderful debut next week.
I’ve just started Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller, and it’s too soon to have much of a feel for it yet. I’m very hopeful though. Two of my 2017 goals were reading more nonfiction and listening to more audio books. I also had a list a couple of weeks ago of 2016 books I still wanted to get to. Well, with the audio version of When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, I’ve tackled all three! I’m just over two hours in and really like it, as everyone told me I would. I’m starting to realize that I may end up at work in tears one day, but it will be worth it.
Likely to Read Next:
Next up, I’m going to the dark side! Desperation Road by Michael Farris Smith is a book I’m very much looking forward to reading. It’s been described as a gorgeous and violent story of troubled souls. Sounds like a perfecrt change of pace.
