After a crazy, busy, yet fun weekend, I’m finally settling into some new reads (And a reread).
My requests have been much lighter this year but I did request The Small Backs of Children by Lidia Yuknavitch which releases tomorrow. I’m struggling with this one, friends. I read The Chronology of Water earlier this year in preparation for this book to get an idea of her writing style. I DNF Chronology, which is a memoir that many have raved about but I just found it to be too much. She goes through a lot of hardship but the style and/or voice didn’t click with me. Memoirs and I have a so-so relationship so I didn’t worry too much about Small Backs. Again, maybe it’s too early to tell. She does revisit some of the trauma from her memoir and yet this is supposed to be fiction, so I really don’t know yet.
To Kill A Mockingbird is a reread I really hope lives up to how much I loved it as a teen!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
