Weekly Wrap Up – August 26

weekly wrap up

This was a really great reading week for me. That said, it was a busy one, and I’m tired, so I’m going to keep this short.

The first book I read this week is My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. While this wasn’t quite as amazing as My Lady Jane, it was really good. I had a lot of fun reading it and would definitely recommend it. Can’t wait for the next installment in this series!

Then, because it hasn’t been a great reading month overall, I picked a short book for my nonfiction book of the month and read Lauren Graham’s In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It. This is an extended version of a commencement speech she gave at her alma mater. It wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever read, but I liked it. It contains a bit of advice I could definitely use right now, so I’m glad I decided to read it. Don’t worry, I’m planning on making up for this super short nonfiction book by reading a 500+ page biography in September.

Finally, I decided to knock out my Shakespeare play of the month and read All’s Well That Ends Well. Not my favorite, but I did like it. Interestingly, it reminded me quite a bit of The Canterbury Tales, mainly because the entire thing is centered around sex (which I wasn’t expecting).

Now, onto my current reads! First, I want to mention that I stopped reading The Golem and the Jinni because I was rereading it in anticipation of the sequel, which I thought was coming out next month, but it’s coming out next year. So I’m putting off my reread of this one.

The first book I’m reading is The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this yet, but it’s definitely interesting. I’m about halfway through, and am hoping to finish it this week. I’m also still working on Pride & Prejudice, which is a nice book to have in the background when I”m bored at work. And, this week, I decided to start the fourth book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide series (I want to finish it before the end of the year), so I’m listening to the audiobook of that one.

That’s it for this week! Hope you’re all having a good weekend. As always, I’d love to hear what you’re reading, so let me know in the comments.
