Last week, I only finished one book, and it was a children’s book. My reading momentum has definitely slowed down recently, but my TBR has only gotten longer, of course. I’m trying to push through it and keep picking up books I’m excited about to get that momentum rolling again. I also got far too much sleep this weekend after not feeling well (I’m feeling better this morning), so that paired with the end of daylight saving time will hopefully get my poor sleep habits back on track as well. Some of the neighborhood turkeys also came by the house last week, which is always exciting.
Last Week I Finished Reading
The Little Prince
by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
A well-known children’s book that I otherwise knew nothing about, this is a sweet story about a pilot meeting a little prince from another planet.
This story has gotten slightly less chaotic. I’m still not entirely sure where it’s all headed, but I feel like I’ve gotten my footing by now and I am enjoying it.
Leadership and Self-Deception
by The Arbinger Institute
This is a non-fiction about the concept of self-deception and the idea of ‘getting out of the box’. It reads like one of those cheesy instructional videos from the 80s/90s, if you’re familiar with those. It’s an interesting concept so far, and I’m getting a kick out of the style it’s written.
The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie
by Rachel Linden
With her 33rd birthday approaching, Lolly realizes she hasn’t accomplished any of the goals her young self had set. Through the magic of lemon drop pie, she has the chance to change that. I’ve only just started this book, so I don’t have an opinion on it yet, but it is one I’ve been anticipating this year, so hopefully I love it.
