It's Monday is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey!
I got my act together this week! Somehow I finished six books? Didn't see that coming. I participated in my first 24 hour readathon, which definitely helped with that! It was actually amazing. I loved it. Check out my experience here. I also completely revamped the ol' blog design this week. So that's pretty exciting.
Three weeks until I graduate! Here's hoping I can get my schoolwork act together too.
This week I read:
- Three books for Readathon!! - I won't go on about them here.
- Hammer Head: The Making of a Carpenter by Nina MacLaughlin - LOVED THIS. Definitely what I needed to read as someone unsure about her future.
- Burial Rites by Hannah Kent - My boss and I LOVED this one! That ending, oh my god. Can't get over it.
- I Am Sorry to Think I Have Raised a Timid Son by Kent Russell - I feel like there was some false advertising about this book. Not my favorite, but I'll be posting about it this week.
I've been looking forward to Dendera by Yuya Sato for a long time and I'm finally about to dive in. It's a science fiction novel translated from Japanese about old women that get sacrificed/abandoned at the top of a mountain in the name of like health for the youth. A woman who gets abandoned wakes up and finds herself in a kind of utopian society of other abandoned old women. Is that not the best? I'm so excited.
