It’s Monday, May 11th. What Are You Reading?


So, we’re back at Monday, eh? It feels like we were just here. I think the weeks are flying by because I feel like I’m running out of time—my research job is coming to a close as the project ends and I’m now pretty deep in the hunt. I’m still throwing around the possibility of a PhD (yet again!), but I wouldn’t be able to start until January and…well, my mortgage doesn’t pay itself. If you know anything about a mortgage that does, though…

Last week was a pretty strange one in Readingland. After the initial excitement of picking it up, I had a rough time getting myself motivated to read Kate Atkinson’s A God in Ruins. In hopes of shaking things up, I wound up reading about half of Missoula in a single sitting, but it’s just as infuriating as you would expect. Thankfully, it was different enough to help me finish A God in Ruins and move on to Hannah Rothschild’s The Improbability of Love, which I’m reading for an assigned review. It’s not out until November, but it’s 100% in my wheelhouse and I’m already intrigued.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?
