Happy vacation time, ladies and gents! I know, I know…not everyone is on vacation (my husband has to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year), but I’m a little excited about my two weeks off. So excited that I decided to jump into my most anticipated book of 2015, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. It’s not out until March, but it’s a long one and I wanted a good chunk of time to sit down with it. I’m glad I made that decision, too, because it’s just incredibly absorbing. Before picking it up, I finished Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle and Zealot by Reza Aslan, which were both great. A copy of Wendy C. Ortiz’s Excavation just arrived for me, but I think I might end up too trapped by A Little Life to read both.
I had decided that I wasn’t going to do any challenges in 2015, but Sheila at Book Journey won me over with the 2015 Library Challenge, since it’s been part of my plan to use the library more often next year. I think I’m going to aim for 23-27 checkouts read, which would be an improvement from this year. We’ll see!
