Weekly Wrap Up – October 29

weekly wrap up

I really need to start writing these before the absolute last minute, because I have been so tired the past couple of weeks. Right now, I am absolutely exhausted, and will be going directly to bed after I finish writing this post.

This week was a very slow reading week for me (I feel like this is going to be a theme until I’m done with this exhausting project at work). I only finished one book, but isn’t terrible, but it is a bit disappointing, since I’m a bit behind on what I’d like to have read this month. However, that one book was a really great one!

The book I read this week is An American Family by Khizr Khan. It is a memoir of his journey from a poor student in Pakistan to a speaker at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. And it is easily one of the most inspiring things I’ve read this year. I loved it! It really spoke to me and I enjoyed reading it so much.

Other than that, I am still working on Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks, which is pretty good so far, and The Dark Half, by Stephen King, which I’m not totally sure about at this point. The story is very interesting, but it’s not one of King’s better written novels, so I’m slogging through it just a little bit. Still looking forward to the rest of it, though.

This week, my aunt is in town from the Middle East, so if I’m not active online that much (or if I don’t post any reviews this week), that’s why. Also, I really need to catch up on sleep.

I hope you’re all having a good weekend. Let me know what you read this week in the comments!
