It’s been about eleventy million degrees outside the past few days, but even though I’ve been safe in the air conditioning, I didn’t get a ton of reading done this weekend. I spent a major part of the day Saturday switching up my blog design on a total whim, then ended up with a bit of a headache that made reading a no-go. I did, however, finish up what I started last week and got a good start on two great books. Secessia is the second novel by Kent Wascom, which I’ve been anxiously waiting for since I read his debut in 2013, and it’s off to a fantastic start. I’m also about halfway through Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County by Kristen Green, a Richmond journalist, which is about segregation in Virginia schools after the Brown v. Board of Education decision.
And today marks the start of the #BlumeAlong! I have a copy of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret waiting for me at the library, so as soon as I’m finished with one of these, I’m jumping in on my very first Judy Blume (crazy, I know).
