It's Monday! The Only Blog Post I Do Dependably! What Are You Reading?
Anyhoo so this week I finished Sisterland, Curtis Sittenfeld's new book coming in June, and I really enjoyed it. She's such an interesting writer. She writes about ordinary life with a skewed perspective and I love that. I first read her work in an anthology called This is Not Chick Lit, a collection of literary women. The story, which I'll never forget, was called "Volunteers Are Shining Stars" and like I said, I'll never forget it. Some of Sisterland will stay with me for a long time, too!
I also read Vaclav and Lena, by Haley Tanner, which has been on my radar basically since it came out. The paperback is about a year old now and I really, really loved this book. It's not what you think it is at the beginning and I admire the way the story unfolds.
And I'm currently scanning my TBR to pick out my next book, most likely True Grit or Blood Meridian. We'll see!
