Just a few days into April, so I’m not too late. I managed to squeeze in a few more books this month (mostly in audio again) and many of them were very good, but I’m still hunting for another really great read.
Cannibalism by Bill Schutt
Difficult Women by Roxane Gay
Another Day in the Death of America by Gary Younge
Universal Harvester by John Darnielle
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
Best Book of the Month
Universal Harvester by John Darnielle (not a perfect book or even one I loved as much as Wolf in White Van, but just such a unique, enjoyable reading experience)
My husband and I are flying through The Sopranos, but mostly getting excited for all the shows we love to come back (Fargo, The Leftovers) and new ones to arrive (The Handmaid’s Tale!).
If I’m really honest, my best book of the month was the new Serial/This American Life collaboration, S-Town (you should really peek at the website if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s so gorgeous). It’s so wildly different from the first season of Serial, but just as complicated and questionable and absolutely bingeable. I definitely finished all seven chapters in two days.
On the School Side
No real Spring Break here, just straight on through the summer. I’m actually registering for Fall classes today and getting things all lined up for year 2. Submitting conference proposals, working on manuscripts for journal submission, getting there!
