It's Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey!
This was both a great and a horrible week. My boyfriend came from out of town to visit me for a number of days, which was a blast. It felt like summer outside. I took him clubbing for the first time, which was both fun and hilarious. I was just overjoyed to see him.
But also my computer broke. I have a lot of stuff to get done for school as I get closer to graduation, and suddenly my laptop can't handle using the one computer program I need. COOL. And I thought I fixed my PC up to do the work, but it blue screens whenever I try to render my 3D stuff. COOLER. Ugh.
On a high note again, I've spent a lot of time with friends and coworkers. AND I went to the Chicago Reader Book Swap, which was both a mob scene and awesome. You brought up to 15 books and could take up to 15 books. Here's what I got in a low quality, cheapest-smartphone-I-could-get photo:
|The illegible top pile of books are: A Raisin in the Sun, Faces in the Crowd, In the Lake of the Woods, and Epitaph.|
This week I read:
- The Last Flight of Poxl West by Daniel Torday - This book had a lot of promise and did have a great twist ending. It let me down in a couple ways, but I'm glad I read it. If you like books within books, check out my review.
Currently Reading (the same things as last week!):
My coworker has been kicked out of the three-person book club a total of 5 times now, so it is a two-person book club again. She just hasn't had time to read. Anyway, my boss and I are drawing out the ending of this book. I'm so into it. It's dark and the characters are fascinating and the writing is beautiful and UGH. I don't want it to end. And I also don't know how it's going to end. But I'm excited to find out when I finish on Wednesday.
