What I Read
I read...one book? This week? Which is weird? What the hell have I been doing????
When we did our weekly sharing of what we're reading, one girl was reading a book I hadn't heard of, and when I asked her about it she said it's about a girl who's brother murdered his friend, and the girl is into ice skating. This sounded possibly right up the alley of a certain ice skating thriller fan in my household, so I immediately tracked a copy down and read it yesterday. It was pretty good, although I didn't love the romance aspect, which was a major feature.
Even if I Fall
What I'm Reading/What's Next
I read a few more stories in Black Enough. So far they've been really good. A bad thing about story collections and anthologies is that there are likely to be things I don't love as much, even if they are all objectively good. But the variety is also a good thing.
Honestly, who knows what I'm reading next? I haven't started any of the books I mentioned last week. But here's the stack I am checking out before I leave the library:
- Oregon teachers walked out on Wednesday as part of a call to action for our legislature. Funding is a mess here, and things I took for granted as a student, like reasonable class sizes, classes in arts and the trades, librarians, counselors, and nurses have been neglected for almost the whole time I've been teaching.
- I had dinner with my (adult) niece Friday night. It was gorgeous out, and we ate on the patio. The rain is supposed to return this week, so I'm glad I took some advantage of our summer preview.
I hope I get more reading in this week! I did do some blogging ahead, which is almost unheard of, but hopefully that means I can find more reading time now.
