Weekend Update 7/9/18

I'm sitting in the airport at Syracuse because I had to check out of my hotel way before my flight leaves. I turned in my rental car, checked my bag, and now I'm chilling at the gate. I'm gonna get some lunch in a bit since it's 1:30.

I thought while I was just sitting here, I would catch you up on what I've read this weekend.


Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson - I started this when I got on the plane in Tulsa. I finished it in the hotel room after I checked in Friday afternoon. It was a great book. I may have been completely shocked by the twist at the end, but it didn't change my feelings about the book.

Happy People

Happy People Read and Drink Coffee by Agnes Martin-Lugand - If this book hadn't been only 200 pages, I'm not sure I would have finished it. I really didn't care for the main character. Which I feel like a heel for saying because her husband and daughter are killed in the first chapter, but she has never had to work, she owns a literary cafe that makes no money, just for fun. Her husband took care of everything because she just was an overgrown child. I don't hold a lot of truck with people like that. This was an ARC copy which means it's not completely finished, so I tried not to let the spelling errors and structural problems bother me. But the character issue - I struggled with that.


Caraval by Stephanie Garber - I started this last night while I was relaxing in the hotel. I picked it back up after I got through security at the airport. I am now 100 pages into it. I'll read some more on the plane and during my layover in Chicago. It's 400 pages, but it's going pretty fast. I even pulled a couple of books out of my suitcase and put them in my backpack in case I finished this one before I ran out of reading time.

So that catches us up to what I've read this weekend. It was kind of fabulous really.
