Tomorrow’s the end of the year! Ahhh! I’m furiously working to finish my reading goal of 150 books this year. I’ll get it done. I will. However, I think next year I’ll set the goal back at 144, so 12 books a month. It got hard the last three months because I’ve had family/friend visits for one week each. Normally I’d have read 3-4 books during those weeks, so I fell behind.
How’s everyone feeling about the New Year? I’m hoping this is the year that my job situation gets sorted out and I can finally start to settle into adulthood. I also can’t wait to be done applying to and interviewing for jobs. It’s like a combination of applying for college (I work at universities) and dating, and we all know how taxing both of those can be.
Finished (since last It’s Monday post):
Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
Blasphemy by Sherman Alexie
Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety by Daniel B. Smith
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Dwarf: A Memoir of How One Woman Fought for a Body–and a Life–She Was Never Supposed to Have by Tiffanie DiDonato and Rennie Dyball
Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block
Continuing to read:
Live by Night by Dennis Lehane — Considering whether to make this one a DNF. I might just give up, even though I’ve read half. It’s really boring for being about gangsters.
The Passage by Justin Cronin (audiobook) — still chugging along on this book.
What are you reading this week? And how are you celebrating the new year?
