Weekly Wrap Up – June 24

weekly wrap up

This was a really busy week at work, which means my lunch break reading time was pretty much nonexistent. And, since that has become my primary reading time, I didn’t get very much reading done this week.

I did manage to finish one book, and it was amazing: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara. I don’t read a lot of true crime, but I generally enjoy it when I do. And this book was no exception. If you’re interesting in finding out more, you can read my full review of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark.

As for current reads, I’m still slowly making my way through Factfulness by Hans Rosling. It’s all about why the world doesn’t suck as much as we tend to think it does. It’s making me feel a lot better about the world we live in, which is kind of amazing because it’s 2018.

I’m also listening to the audiobook of Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman. I did something I never do and picked this up without having heard of it before. I’m not very far in, and I’m not entirely sure what’s going on, but I’m intrigued.

And, now I am going to go spend the rest of my weekend exploring the new Sims 4 expansion pack, because I need to do something brainless for a bit.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

  1. I think I need to read Factfulness. Ugh, world!
    I’m listening to The Changeling by Victor LaValle. It’s a free Audible trial, so we’ll see how it goes. I’m also reading Island of the Blue Foxes about Peter the Great’s doomed exploration team, Treeborne, a new Southern gothic novel, and Mr. Lear, which is so charming. Have a good week!

    1. I mean, the world still sucks, but the book is making me feel better about it, which is always a plus. Apparently westerners in particular have this weird thing where we believe a lot of wrong information that paints the world as a whole in a bad light. Like, most people think the number of people living in extreme poverty has increased or at least stayed the same in the last 20 years, but it’s actually been reduced to half. I’m pretty surprised by a lot of the real facts mentioned.

      I actually really enjoyed The Changeling, so I hope you do, too! I haven’t heard of the other ones you mentioned, but I’ll definitely look into them. Thanks!
