Which one should I read first?
I‘m on page 70 and I can‘t seem to get into it.
I don‘t know why but I can‘t seem to relax into a book lately. Possibly it‘s hormones (3 months postpartum) or that my husbands really rough assignment is over which changes the balance at home.
This would be the third or fourth book in two months that I‘ve bailed on. Is it me or the book? Does it matter?
Poolside reading is great. But what is this book? I don‘t understand the tone. Is this satire? Do I need to brush up on my Shakespeare or avoid Tyler in the future?
So sad this one is over. I left it on my nightstand for an extra day because I wasn‘t ready to let go.
The writing was wonderful and the story structure was inventive and engaging.
Lately, I‘ve been starting two books at a time. One for bedside reading and the other to carry in my bag. Because not all books are built for travel and any travel might provide time for reading!

A+ for the first half of this book. But Johnson lost me in chapter 4.
As I feel with a disproportionate number of nonfiction reads - the first half has all the useful meat.
Back in our house! So, time for a #HomeRenoRecap
Left: to read
Middle: in progress
I‘m close to done with All the Single Ladies the end just keeps slipping farther away. And I‘ve been trying to keep my tbr in check this year but I‘ve just been finding so many hard-to-pass-up gems!
Excited for Moment of Lift!

Five weeks into my #homereno and reading has been harder than I was expecting and book shopping has been a lot easier. 😬
I‘m also wondering if Asymmetry is a good choice considering my scattered mind right now. Thoughts?

As a white reader trying to understand the intricacies of race relations, Brown doesn‘t offer answers. She supplies insights into better communication and understanding.
I hope I can live up to her expectations.
Will this be enough for the 6-9 weeks I‘ll be living out of a suitcase while my apartment is renovated?!?!?
Actually the Lethem is for the hubs.

Visiting my parents (and childhood home) this long weekend.
I love this book. It feels so much like #ferrante. I‘m supposed to be taking advantage of my parents as babysitters and sleeping. But I just wanna read! It‘s 12:30a and here I am awake...

Having some trouble with this one. I‘m on page 55 but the writing is putting me off. Thinking of bailing. Will I regret it? Is it the important portrayal of native Americans that I think it is?
What I wouldn‘t give to sit at a coffee shop and finish this book right now. I‘m so close!
Just finished this and I‘m shaking.
Its everything. Everything this year of my #readingwomen has been about. Everything #feminism is. All of its promises and real life problems. It‘s all of the complications of adulthood and societal expectations. It‘s young love and reality. So much truth. So much heartbreak.
