It's Monday and the reading is not going too quickly!

I spent this past weekend with my best friend, who was a stinker and got a fabulous new job across the country. Since she will be moving in the next month or so, we spent the weekend with our husband and boyfriend respectively, doing important things like having a wine and cheese party and visiting a secondhand bookstore.

I finished reading The Last Bookaneer and then apparently started a slow but serious non-fiction binge. I am almost finished with Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking and feel like I am learning so much. 

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking  The Last Bookaneer  

I was searching for a new audiobook and decided to get I Am Malala from the library. A note to anyone who saw a crazy crying girl on the commute home on Thursday - I'm fine; it's just that listening to Malala talk about her plan in case the Taliban attacked her made my momma heart cry just a little bit. Next I will be reading Saint Mazie and I'm looking forward to picking up Welcome to My Breakdown when I finish that.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban   Welcome to My Breakdown: A Memoir

  3. Quiet is wonderful! I hope to read I Am Malala at some point. It sounds like I just need to be in a place where I can cry without judgment! :)

    1. The introduction is read by Malala herself, as opposed to the rest of the book being read by someone else. There is just something about her methodically relaying what happened on the day when she was shot that really got me in the heart.

  4. Yay for nonfiction! I'm another person who loved Quiet and I've been wanting to get to I Am Malala, so I'll be excited to hear more of your thoughts on both :)

    1. Me too! I love that she breaks down the stigma that being introverted is strange or less desirable than being an extrovert.
