Weekly Wrap Up – June 17

weekly wrap up

This is going to be a very short wrap up because I am completely exhausted. I just came  back from seeing the Genghis Khan exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Library, which was really cool, but involved 4+ hours in the car. Through downtown LA (aka the worst place ever). As I write this, it’s just after 7pm on Saturday, and I am struggling to keep my eyes open. I might go to bed before 8. Twenty-nine year-old grandma right here. Let’s just get into the books before I pass out.

I read two books this week. The first book I finished is Black Klansman by Ron Stallworth. This was a very interesting memoir about a black cop who infiltrated the KKK in the late 1970s. You can read my review of Black Klansman if you want to find out more.

Then I read Confessions of the Fox by Jordy Rosenberg. Honestly, my feelings about this are kind of mixed. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. I also did a review of Confessions of the Fox if you’re interested.

As for current reads, I’m just about done with I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamanra, which I am really enjoying. I’m hoping to finish it today, and get a review up sometime this week.

I also recently started Factfulness by Hans Rosling, which is a very interesting read. It’s all about how the world is not as bad as we think it is, and why we’re so wrong about it. I’m not very far in, but I did not do well on the quiz at the beginning (meaning my world view is more negative than it should be), so I’m excited to keep reading. I think I’m going to like this one.

And that’s it for this week! Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. What did you read this week?
