Weekly Wrap Up – June 11

weekly wrap up

This post is going up a few hours late because I didn’t have time to schedule it before my very busy Saturday, instead of coming home early to write it, I went to see Wonder Woman. And I have absolutely no regrets. It was so good! I’ve never really experienced Wonder Woman before, other than a brief glimpse in DC cartoons (the kid I used to nanny was a bit obsessed with the Justice League Lego mini movies). I really loved Wonder Woman’s backstory, and thought the plot of the film was just so fun. So glad I ended up going to see it! Now, onto the books!

I only finished one book this week: Mr. Fox by Helen Oyeyemi. I don’t really know if I can even begin to explain how I feel about this book right now, but I did write a whole review earlier this week, so go read that if you’re interested. In short: it was weird, but I liked it. Kind of.

In other reading news, I am almost done with The Chalk Artist by Allegra Goodman, which I am hoping to finish today and have a review up for tomorrow. So far, I really love this book. It is completely different than what I was expecting, but I think that’s a good thing. It’s such an interesting story, and I really love all of the characters.

I also started a new audiobook this week: Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I am almost done with this one as well, and I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I don’t think I will ever be a hardcore Vonnegut fan, but I definitely plan on reading more of his work. I’m glad I read this book, because the only other book of his I’d read is God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, which I thought was just okay. This one is much better, in my opinion, more on-par with “Harrison Bergeron”, a short story by Vonnegut which I loved. If you’ve read his books, let me know what your favorite is, and which one you think I should read next.

I think that’s it for this week! It’s past 1 am, so I’m going to wrap up this post and go to bed. I hope you’re all having a great weekend! As always, let me know what you’re reading in the comments!
