What I Read
This Mortal Coil
Opposite of Always
Where the Crawdads Sing
Odd One Out
The Past and Other Things that Should Stay Buried
I wasn't blown away by anything this week. Some of it was my expectations not aligning with the actual book (Opposite of Always, Odd One Out, and Where the Crawdads Sing.) I liked This Mortal Coil a lot, but when I started the next book, I was like--nah, I'm good. Saving Red was really good. They were ALL good. Just not amazing, which is what I'd been on a streak of going into this week.
What I'm Reading/What's Next
I've started reading Donna Gephart's In Your Shoes. So far, so cute, although the parallels between that and her Lily & Dunkin are sort of weirding me out. New kid, old kid, unlikely friendship, family tragedies and all. I'm just at the beginning though. Also, someone gets hit in the head by a flying shoe, which I think belongs always and forever to Louis Sachar and Holes.
Some books I hope to get to soon are Daughter of the Pirate King, March 1-3, and a re-read of Every Day leading into reading the sequels for the first time. Those last two are part of my attempt to finish a series (or two) in May.
- My kid and I took a hike today. It was lovely. I was slow, but I don't care.
- Now we're at the library. They are wrapping up their used book sale, and I just got 15 books for my classroom library for $40.
- We've been watching Money Heist on Netflix. It was fun for awhile, but the last two episodes were ridiculous. The dubbing SUUUUUUUCKS* and I am going to propose that if we keep watching, we just use subtitles.
*but not as bad as dubbing when I was in Latvia, which consisted of two (if you were lucky) bored people reading all the lines more or less in the same scene they were occurring, with the original still audible if you cranked up the volume enough.
