Since my last update, I finished three more books. My favorite from that bunch is I Feel Bad About My Neck. Nora Ephron is a wonderful essayist and an even better narrator so this audiobook was a lot of fun to listen to. After finishing this audiobook, I picked the print copy as well and will be re-reading some of the essays as I write my review. And then I need to get more of her books.
I also picked up The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy on an impulse from the library and finished it quickly. It was a breeze to read but not filled with as much information as I was looking for.
I also just finished Underground Airlines, which I had been looking forward to, only to be severely disappointed. I am still getting my thoughts together so I will not say more than I did on Litsy - it has a fascinating backdrop and a good suspense, but I found the execution poor with convenient plots.
Right now, I only have one book in progress, though I am almost done with it - Sh*tty Mom. I picked it up after seeing it on Litsy and I figured one more humorous parenting book is exactly what I wanted to read (I rarely ever read serious parenting books, go figure). As with most books with essays, some essays in this book are downright hilarious, while a few are just meh. It's a quick read however and I will most likely finish it tonight.
- I started listening to How to Make White People Laugh by Negin Farsad - yet another find on Litsy (wow, a lot of my reads are being dictated by Litsy nowadays, for better or worse). But I haven't been listening to it in a while, so I will have to restart this one.
- Rather than do audiobooks right now, I am hoping to start listening to the Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast.
- I also just installed the Serial Reader app on my phone and plan to start with War of the Worlds.
- And in print, I may start Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet or The Yoga of Max's Discontent next.
