It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I also finished Orange is the New Black, by Piper Kerman, on audio. I enjoyed it a lot. Memoirs are personal and idiosyncratic and I understand the reviewers who didn't like it, mostly because I think they didn't like her, but I liked the book. More soon.
I also read the new book by Antonio Skarmeta, A Distant Father. Skarmeta wrote Il Postino; this new one comes out in the fall and it's about a young man searching for the father who abandoned him and his mother, supposedly moving to France. But it turns out he's closer than the son ever expected and what comes next will amaze everyone.
All of this leaves me with some gaps in my reading so of course I'm moving to fill them up. There are so many things I'm dying to get to right now but I have to choose, so anyway here goes.
And then I have a few others from which I'm choosing right now. Jeff Vandermeer's Authority, the sequel to Annihilation, is out; I also want to read Molly Fox's Birthday by the wonderful Deirdre Madden and I Married You For Happiness by Lily Tuck. Have you read any of these? Do you have another suggestion for me?
I need a suggestion for a non-fiction audiobook too. What's your favorite history or sociology on audio?
Have a great week! More at BookJourney.wordpress.com.
