I spent the morning pulling up ivy vines that grew into our yard from the neighbor’s house. It is crazy how that shit grows. I had to pull feet of it from the lawn. This is going to be a yearly struggle because I will not have that stuff growing into my foundation or siding.
It’s been a crazy good reading week for me.
I finished: Please Ignore Vera Dietz and stayed up way past my bedtime to do it. It was so good. Why did I wait so long to read it?? I also finally finished Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes and Louise Erdrich’s Tracks.
Comics-wise: I read issues 1 and 2 of Bitch Planet and am now officially hooked. On the series and on Comixology. I LOVE the essays at the end of each issue.
I am currently reading: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (I’ve had it for ages but all the hype made me keep putting it off). It’s a super quick read so I’ll probably be finished with it by tomorrow.
This week I plan on starting: The Professor and the Madman. I wanted to start it last week but didn’t end up getting it in the mail until yesterday!
Also I went book shopping yesterday because I had a 20% coupon from Barnes and Noble. So I got The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I believe it’s a short story collection? I can’t wait to read that one!
A happy long weekend to anyone who’s off tomorrow! Are you doing any yard work this weekend? Wow being an adult is so much fun.
