Friday Reads 7/22/22

So I guess it's Friday. I haven't known what day of the week it is all week. I meant to post, but I was so busy I forgot. Anyway, here I am to talk about what I'm going to read. There's basically only one more week of July, so I've got to get busy wrapping things up.

Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell - I'm over halfway through this. It's wonderful. I love her writing. Mike made me stop reading and go eat dinner right when I was getting to the surprise twin part. Gah! I just need a couple more hours to wrap this up.

Rural Voices: 15 Authors Challenge Assumptions About Small-Town America edited by Nora Shalaway Carpenter - I'm halfway through this one. I don't read a story every single day, but I am really enjoying all the stories. I haven't run across a bad one yet.

Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood - This is the last one on my July TBR. If I at least get it started by the end of the month, I will feel accomplished. This is the memoir about the woman whose father became a Catholic priest through a loophole in the policy.

I'm having major surgery on Wednesday of next week. My friend says I probably won't have much of a brain for reading for a week or so afterwards, so I'm going to keep my expectations low for this week.

What are you reading this week?
