Happy May everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and got some ample reading time in.
I’m still working on Life After Life, and although it’s not grabbing me like I hoped it would, I’ve had a really wonderful reading streak that I hope continues. I’m also excited for May’s new releases and posted ten that I’m hoping my library will have on the shelves. You can see the list here.
I received two ARCs for May that I am excited to start, The Shore by Sara Taylor and Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf. Have you read any of The Best American Essays collections? They are not a series like you would think, but every year a collection is published and the series editor chooses 100 and then the guest editor narrows it down to 25. The 2013 collection was chosen by Cheryl Strayed, so I have been reading an essay or two every day this past weekend. Highly recommend you pick up a collection if you like essays. They also do a short story collection every year! But…of course, with having them planned out for my week the library did this to me:
All. AT. ONCE. I will probably have to return some of these beauties, but which?!
So, that’s the plan for the week. Much to get through, so I better go and get started!
