Post-Friday Reads - May 12 (ish), 2017
This week has been B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Sorry about the Friday Reads post that is a day late. AGAIN. I have been reading, I've just been terrible at documenting said reading. Here's where I'm at this weekend!
I finished one book and had one DNF this week.
It took me a while to read Tobacco Sun by Lorna Hollifield, but it wasn't because it wasn't good. It's a sweeping story in the American South just after World War II, and I was here for it. I was just super busy. But it's great, and I'll be writing a full review just before the release (which is June 13, in case anyone is wondering!).
Once I finished Tobacco Sun, I dove into a book I have been waiting to read for months - Get It Together, Delilah! by Erin Gough. It had such a cute premise - gay girl trying to figure her life out at the end of high school amongst bullies, etc. But... that's not what I got from it. I DNFed at 24%, after Delilah's friend Charlie punched a stranger in the face who didn't feel like letting Charlie into his house after Charlie had been stalking his daughter all night. Plus, Delilah's dad left her to go exploring around the world, and she's trying to run his diner while she's still in high school??? None of it made any sense, so I put it aside. At least for now. I have so many other books to read that make sense, you know?
So now I'm on to How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake, which is another one I've been waiting and waiting to read. I don't know what has taken me so long.
I haven't started it yet, but I'm hoping I won't be too tired tonight. I ran 9 miles this morning and then a 7-hour shift at my second job. Always moving, always tired. I have to get some writing done this weekend, too!
What are you reading this weekend?
