I had the wonderful/terrifying realization that school starts in about two weeks. So if you need me, I will be paging through school supply lists, retroactively filling out reading logs, and discovering that every pair of pants that D owns is suddenly too short.
This week, I read two really good books. I loved Father's Day, to the point where I found my husband and said, "Hey. Do you want to hear about this book I just finished?" I also adored Jane Steele and I apologize to Lyndsay Faye for taking so long to read her book!
This week, I'm reading The Appointment, which my dad wanted me to read so we could discuss it together. He is Romanian and decided to take on the project of reading all the books of Muller, a Romanian writer who has been awarded the Nobel Prize. After that, I'm going to read MWF seeking BFF, which seems like a good pick for a girl whose best friend moved clear across the country.
What are you reading this week?
I love your readalong with your dad. That should be interesting.ReplyDelete
Here's my It's Monday. Consider yourself happiness-tagged. Or not. As you so wish.
I love talking books with my family members, so I'm interested in what he thought about The Appointment.Delete
I love love love Simon Van Booy, so it's good to hear great things about Father's Day!ReplyDelete
Me too!! I'm trying to space out his books a bit, so I won't be left waiting for him to write a new one.Delete
Oh my - I love all your picks! Very interested in the Romanian author. Will go to Goodreads right now. I've listed Jane Steele as a next to read! Glad you enjoyed it. Makes me even more excited to start reading it. Here's my It's Monday: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2016/08/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-2.htmlReplyDelete
Thanks Mareli! I hope you will check back and let me know what you think when you get to read Jane Steele!Delete
Nice looking assortment of books. I hope you enjoy this week's picks. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Father's Day and Jane Steele sound good to me. Good post, and try to have a relaxing week ahead :)ReplyDelete
My dad was never a book reader though he always encouraged me to read. He's recently discovered the magic of books for himself at the age at 90. We have some wonderful discussions.ReplyDelete
I hope you have a great week though it looks like you will be busy with school preparations.
I tried Jane Steele, but the writing style just wasn't for me. But I know tons of people loved it and I'm glad it worked for you!ReplyDelete
Similar pre-school craziness here, only we've been getting ready for weeks! Our youngest moves to college for the first time on Saturday! Still the same prep - buying school supplies (plus dorm room supplies), ordering textbooks, etc.ReplyDelete
Glad you had such a good reading week. I also want to read MWF Seeking BFF.
Enjoy your books this week -
Book By Book
Enjoy the remaining days before school starts. I've had Jane Steele sitting on the stacks for too long.ReplyDelete
I really need to check out Father's Day. I like that you wanted to talk to your husband about it. And the cover is adorable. Happy reading and good luck with the start of school.ReplyDelete
Jane Steele is on my TBR. MWF Seeks BFF is new to me but sound alike I would like it. Good luck with the start of school!!ReplyDelete
