One was a book that I found intriguing but slow, the other I could not put down.
Last week's posts:
Hmm, this seems to lean closer to "bad blogging week" but, again, lately I'm just happy to get any reviews written at all.
Metaphors Be With You by Mardy Grothe - I've returned to this one after having set it aside for several weeks. Since I finished Survivors Club late last night, I haven't yet determined what else I'll read next, although I'm hoping to get started on Hidden Figures and I have several novels piled next to the bed. I'll choose my next fiction read, tonight.
In other news:
I can answer some of the questions I posed, last week, now. Will I get around to reading a classic, this month? Oh, oops, actually . . . I did read one: The Handmaid's Tale. It's a modern classic but a classic, nevertheless. I was hoping to read a second one because I didn't manage to finish a classic in January, but I'll take what I can get. Will I locate the book I chose as my feminist read of the month? I found it! But, I haven't read a single page so it will be shoved into March. We'll see if I end up reading just the one or attempt two feminist reads to make up for February.
I don't know what became of the discussion about The Handmaid's Tale. I thought it was going to occur at a particular Facebook site and it didn't, so clearly I missed it. I have no idea where discussion was held. Still, I'm glad I read the book. I've meant to read it for ages and I'm always happy when I manage to read another book that's been on my shelves for years.
