For the past two weeks I’ve basically been doing nothing…
So this blog post is long overdue. I’ve been in sort of a rut lately. Work has been busy as we interview and pick staffs for next year. I recently went to Wisconsin for a week to recruit people to work at my University. It’s been a good time for conversations about politics, privilege, and religion – my favorite topics. But consequently, it’s been a bad time for books. March was supposed to be my re-read month, but I’m moving it to April. So hopefully my birthday month can be filled with some of my favorite authors and books!
In February I read 14 books, which is about a third less than I read in January. However, I’m still ahead of my reading goal for the year – so I’m happy.
- The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan
- Everybody Sees The Ants by A.S. King
- Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman
- The Anatomical Shape of A Heart by Jenn Bennett
- Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
- The Audacity of Hope by Barrack Obama
- The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin
- My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
- Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
- Yes Please by Amy Poehler**
- The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
- Soy Sauce for Beginners by Kirstin Chen
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Per usual, my top five are highlighted in red. The ** will mean that it is better to listen to this book as an audiobook!
Until Next Time World…
