I’m just finishing up Euphoria by Lily King. This captivating novel inspired by anthropologist Margaret Mead is going to make me obsess about her work and her life. I just don’t want it to end! I can already tell it will be on my favorites for 2014. Before that I read Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast, and again, an instant favorite.
These past few weeks have been so freeing with my book choices. I call it my “Backlist Bliss” phase. Similar to when I first started blogging; reading what I wanted, when I wanted.
I had some “required reading” with book clubs, a book tour and some ARCs I felt
obligated responsible to read. I never have to write a review but I feel that if I request it, I should do my part and at least read it. Or attempt to.
So with all that being said, I do have several ARCs I would like to finish before 2014 comes to a close. They slipped through the cracks in my reading schedule. These three are all under 300 pages and two of them short stories, which will give me more time to get back to my “Backlist Bliss”.
