What are you currently reading?
I am reading We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver right now. It’s disturbing enough that I can only stand it in little chunks. Every parent must somehow at some time in their parenthood worry that their child might not grow up to be the angel you hope they continue to be. That’s why I can only take this book in small doses.
Otherwise, I’m listening to Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs on CD. It adds a little humor to my drive after I’m depressed from reading the book listed previously!
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished Wool 5: Stranded by Hugh Howey, an excellent dystopian climax to the Wool series. There is a “prequel,” First Shift – Legacy, I intend to read, too. I hope many more post-apocalypse and dystopia fans discover Howey’s work!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Even though I’ve had this title on my Kindle since I first bought it three years ago, I still have yet to read Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. It kicked off a YA series that I’m not sure about following, but this one was free. Why not?
