I’ve read a lot of books lately but haven’t been keeping up with my “What I’m Reading” posts. Now that I’m starting the seventh book since my last review, I thought it was a good time to get back to it.
Right now, I’m reading The Tao of Martha: My Year of LIVING or Why I’m Never Getting All That Glitter Off of the Dog. Before that, I read:
Bossypants by Tina Fey
Everything is Perfect When You’re a Liar by Kelly Oxford
Cemetery Girl by David Bell
Instinct by T.D. Jakes
Defending Jacob by William Landay and
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I’m also working my way through Memoirs of a Geisha and re-reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Really, it depends on what I’m in the mood for when I have extra time to read. With the stress of my world lately, it’s nice to lose myself in someone else’s world for a few minutes or hours.
Thanks to Audible, I can listen on my commute (when I’ve finished listening to my favorite radio shows and podcasts on demand) and work my way through a book in a little over a week. Ah, sweet escapism.
Anyway, let’s get to it. Actually, first, let me say this. The “What I’m Reading” series is not meant as a showcase for newly released books. It is just what it says it is—what I’m reading at the time. Sometimes, what I’m reading will be hot off the presses and sometimes it will be several years old. Sorry. I just read things as I get to them and my list is super long. I will say, I also welcome suggestions if you want me to review something.
Ok, let’s move on with the review.
Bossypants!! (Pause for applause)
I should start this review by saying I love Tina Fey (hence the applause pause), but who doesn’t? Well, if you let her tell it, apparently quite a few people. She includes these gems in Bossypants:
