Friday Reads 5-15-20

I'm beginning to get into the groove of this working at home situation. I have to be very careful not to go over my 40 hours per week. At the beginning of the week, I work hard to fill the hours or I feel like I'm behind. Then by Friday, I'm trying not to work as much so I can not go over. When I have hours on Saturday, I have to take those into account, too. And of course, Friday is when all the stuff hits the fan that I need to work on.

But we're not here for that. We're here for the books!

I've had a rash of headaches this week, so I haven't read as much as I had hoped. So I'm still reading some things from last Friday's list.

Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb - I'm about half way through this. I'm pretty sure I can finish it off this weekend, if I get some time to focus on it.

S by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst - I'm a little over halfway through this one. I try to read a chapter every night unless my brain is just too fried. It's very good, but it does take brain power.

The Feminist Agenda of Jemima Kincaid by Kate Hattemer - I am almost halfway through this. It reads pretty fast, so I hope to finish it while I'm working tomorrow, if I have enough time left.

Long Bright River by Liz Moore - When I finish the Robin Hobb book, I want to grab this. It came in my Book of the Month box last week, and I'm pretty stoked to check it out.

The Silence of Bones by June Hur - When I finish Jemima Kincaid, I'm going to grab this one. It's historical fiction set in Korea. What? That never happens. I think it's also a mystery. Pretty excited about that.

Of course there are 34990248 more I want to pick up. I have a bunch on hold at the library because we can do that again, now. So, if one of those comes in, I'll be reading that.

I'm actually excited about reading again. Woo hoo!
