I’m still reading the amazing Roxane Gay’s Difficult Women. I’m moving through it now, but for every story that I read quickly the next one basically guts me (see Open Marriage) and then I’m stuck. I saw Roxane speak last week and she was just as amazing as you would hope. Funny and honest and way more open than I could be.
I’m finally getting into Severed: A History of Heads Lost and Heads Found which is not as highly entertaining as I wanted. Interesting but fairly dry so far. I think I am going need something pretty ridiculous to read at home. Maybe I’ll be the last person in America to read The Girl on the Train. I’m basically stalking my library hold list waiting for The Windfall to come in – Catherine’s review at The Gilmore Guide to Books got me even more excited!
What are you reading this week? Thanks to The Book Date for this check in!
