Well, I’m one orientation down and just a week out from the start of classes, which means I have exactly seven days to read everything left on my shelves (ha!). Really, though, I’m trying to squeeze in a healthy mix of reading, serious-scrubby-cleaning, and relaxing. One of those things is not like the other. Though I’m bummed about my relatively free summer coming to an end, I really just love this time through the end of the year, so bring on Fall.
It looks like this week is all about the tan covered, incredibly depressing (but very good) books, huh? I didn’t plan for it, but somehow landed in the middle of these at the same time, so I think I’m going to need something cheery when I’m done. The good news? Both Affinity Konar’s Mischling and Anuk Arudpragasam’s The Story of a Brief Marriage blew me away in the first few pages so, despite their sad stories, it’s great to be loving what I’m reading.
