Friday Reads 6/25/21

Whoo boy! I am always so grateful for a Friday. And here we are again! This Friday I have another sinus infection that is making me drag a little bit, but I'm vertical so let's get this thing going! Also, I have Monday off work. Since July 4th is on a Sunday and we don't work on Sundays, everyone has to choose a different day to be off work. I have to work next Saturday, so I'm already getting Friday off. I was going to choose Thursday, but then a zillion other people picked Thursday. I decided Monday was the best day for me because a) I still get a 3-day weekend and b) Monday is our anniversary! 24 years! It doesn't seem like that long, but I guess it is. The math adds up. So the point of this rambling is to say that I have a 3-day weekend coming up to read! I'm getting my nails done Saturday and I have bell choir practice on Sunday, but I will still have lots of reading time! What will I read, you ask? Excellent question. I have some ideas, but sometimes I get a wild hair and just jump the shark.

Jane Austen, the Secret Radical by Helena Kelly - I am REALLY enjoying this book. I'm about half way through and I am learning a LOT about Jane Austen and her books. This book is truly enlightening. I'll say more when I wrap it up later.

Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo - I've only read about 75 pages of this. It's ok so far. I have hopes that it will pick up. Right now, it's moving pretty slowly.

Map To the Sun by Sloane Leong - I got this from the library the other day, but it's been in my bag since then. No reading time! This is a graphic novel about a group of girls on a basketball team learning how to be  team. I've heard great things about it.

Olive, Mabel & Me by Andrew Cotter - After I posted about this yesterday, I decided to see if my library had a copy. Not only did they have a copy, but they got it to me in record time! It came in this morning's delivery and I am so excited to read about "Two Very Good Dogs". It has literally 204 pages, so I think I can fly through it.

I feel kind of guilty that only one of these books is an award book. I should have had an audiobook going, but I didn't. Maybe next week I can ramp it up a little.

What will you be reading this weekend?
