Friday Reads 9/1/17

Hooray!!! It's September!!! I hate August. I mean, this one was relatively fine weather-wise, but just in general, summer sucks.

And it's Friday. Two wins! I mean, I'm sick as a dog and I have to work on Sunday. But I get Monday off to catch up on all the things I will miss. So awesome!

Here's what I have on deck for the weekend. Now, keep in mind that I am seriously overambitious with this list. I know. It's just that it's a new month and I have all these books here waiting for me. And I really don't want to do school.

Am I Alone Here?

Am I Alone Here?: Notes on living to read and reading to live by Peter Orner - This came in the mail yesterday. I was ordering bell gloves for my daughter and I on Amazon, and I just needed to add a book. I couldn't just leave it with one measly little glove order. So I picked a book from my wishlist. It's a book about books, so of course. Mike said life is crazy and he doesn't mind me ordering little things to keep me sane. I guess he likes life better when the wife is sane. Weird.

My Bookstore

My Bookstore by Ronald Rice - I am still loving this thing. I read it at night. One night, I had taken a couple of Tramadols and ended up reading about 50 pages of it. You'd think I would have knocked out, but no. I read for hours.

Family Romanov

The Family Romanov by Candace Fleming - I have read about half this book so far. And I have read it entirely in doctor's waiting rooms. That should give you some indication of how my life has been going recently. It's very good, and I look smart because even when I'm sick, I'm reading about Tsarist Russia. I don't tell them it's a YA book. Shh!

The Sun is Also a Star

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon - I should probably be reading my book club book, but I don't think my fevered brain can take that yet. So I'll start this lovely YA novel and Sequoyah nominee. It has a bright cover. It has a lot of white space on the pages. Hopefully it's a decent story. I've run across a couple of Sequoyah nominees with which I could not hold any truck. Mostly, they are awesome, though.

In the realm of reality, this is all I am going to have time for this weekend, but trust me, there are so many more I would like to add to this list.
