I don’t want to jinx anything, but I feel like I’m starting to hit a groove with school. That doesn’t mean I have much more time, but I guess I know what to expect in terms of managing it and the work I need to get done. I’m sure there are still some crushing deadlines ahead, I just don’t feel as out of whack with them as I did a few weeks ago. Plus, it’s officially Fall, which is a massive mood booster for me. I’m ready to wrap myself in a permanent pair of leggings.
I finally finished up The Nix earlier this week, which left some room for a new audiobook just as My Name is Lucy Barton popped up from the library. It was a super quick listen at just four hours, but boy did I feel every second. I didn’t love Strout’s last novel either, so it could just be I’m not a fan, but it seems I’m not alone when it comes to the audio version. Thankfully, The Mothers is making up for that mess. I’m LOVING it. I wish I had more time to dedicate because it’s wonderful. I do have time for another audiobook, though, and now that I’m through most of Parks and Recreation I’m finally giving Yes Please a shot.
I mentioned Litsy last week, but it’s now available for everyone on Android! I’m doing little reviews over there (at rivercityreading) and the community is great if you’re interested in joining.
