Monday Malarkey

Recent arrivals (top to bottom):

  • Stranger Planet by Nathan W. Pyle, 
  • Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel Tatum, PhD, and
  • So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo - all purchased
  • How to Astronaut by Terry Virts - from Workman for review

I must have signed up for How to Astronaut through Shelf Awareness, and it would have been quite a while ago because I have accepted only one book for review in the past month or two (a children's book that I'll be reviewing next week). I'm not even looking at my Shelf Awareness newsletters, specifically to stop myself from signing up to review anything. So, How to Astronaut was definitely a surprise arrival. The rest were purchases. I now have a stack of 4 books about race/racism to work on and plan on reading one of them very soon with two friends. Stranger Planet was a pre-order and I will undoubtedly whip through that, this week. I could have read it this weekend but I opted to save it for a few days. And, anyway, I'm enjoying the book I'm reading so I wasn't looking for a distraction. 

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • What You Wish For by Katherine Center

Just the one book finished but I'm close to finishing my current read. 

Currently reading:

  • A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

I was unsure about A Song Below Water when I began reading it. There were things about the story that I found confusing and it took a while to become accustomed to the writing style. But, once I got over that hump I've enjoyed it immensely and I'm actually trying to type as fast as I can so I can get back to reading it.

In other news:

Last week was a dud. I mostly slept a lot. I didn't even watch TV or read much. I did manage to come close to finishing a painting, but I'm not quite done. Hopefully, this week will be a more productive one.
