What Are You Reading?
Up next: I would love to be reading the copyedits for my next book. I'm wondering where they are and I'm getting close to that place where wonder can turn into angst. I deal with the uncertainty and the feelings it brings up in the best way: I keep hitting the "get mail" button. And until something happens, I'm about to dive (er, wade slowly) into Joan Didion's THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING. This is partly because I love Joan Didion and partly because the protagonist of the novel I am currently writing has lost a lot --a lot a lot. Much more than I ever have, so I thought reading this book would help me get in touch with certain feelings. I'm a little scared though as I heard it was very tough and I can be a little bit of a lightweight. Has anyone else read it? I'd love your thoughts. And then after that, I'm reading the book right below: Sarah Pekkanen's THESE GIRLS. Can't wait.
And what are YOU reading and what's on your TBR list? I'd love to add to my own, so please let me know in the comments.
Til next time,
