Sorry for the unexplained absence. Stress, and stuff. At least I’ve been reading! I flew through Yaa Gyasi’s Homegoing, which was nothing short of amazing. Is it sad that I feel like I flew through it, when in reality it took me ten days to read? Ahhhh, new realities.
I’m still going to try to get through another few Tournament reads, but honestly, am losing interest in the short list a bit. Many of them I’m just not feeling right now, which is fine. I’ve made it through seven titles so far, and in my opinion, that’s not too shabby. I don’t plan to force any of them on myself, as I have been known to do in years past. With that being said, I decided to give a stab atVersion Control, and so far so good one chapter in. Mostly, I’m giving this beheamouth book a chance, because Julianne told me to. That’s reason enough, amiright?
I also started listening to Big Little Lies on audio, and am utterly delighted by the narrator. I find myself weirdly smiling while driving and listening, and I suspect it’s completely because of her flawless delivery. I have enjoyed Moriarty’s writing style in the past, and I’m hoping to watch the HBO release in a (somewhat) timely manner.
I hope your week goes as well as can be expected these days, and you find time to cherish and enjoy little things of high significance. For me, it was my son belly laughing continuously yesterday, my super-strong cup of black coffee this morning over an impromptu delicious breakfast date with The Hubs, and my dog currently sleeping with her cold snout in the crook of my elbow.
