Although my last post commented on how slack I have been, I probably have to revisit that. To be fair I have a bit of an excuse, I’ve spent a lovely few nights away with my partner and while I didn’t get much reading done it was a well deserved break from everything. So now I’m trying to knuckle down a little more and I thought I’d write a quick post just to chat about what I’m reading at the moment.
I currently have three books on the go which is a little crazy, even for me, but I’m actually managing them okay. I just finished After the Lights Go Out by Lili Wilkinson which was a survival novel set in the Australian outback and it was so nice reading a genre novel by an Australian author set in my own country. Review coming soon. I’m currently reading We Are Not From Here by Jenny Torres Sanchez which was released a couple of months ago I believe and is about three South American teenagers deciding to go on the dangerous journey to escape their dangerous lives and seek refuge in the US. Lastly I am also reading Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay which is a collection of essays exploring feminism and diversity and I actually got inspired to read it when it was reference in Rules For Being a Girl by Candace Bushnell and Katie Cotugno, so really looking forward to digging into that.
Thankfully this dreary, rainy weather is a perfect excuse for reading so hope to catch up a bit in the next few days. Hope you all find your excuse to fit in some more reading too!
