It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - 5/5/14

http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-234/



It's Monday! I had a ridiculously busy weekend, so this is a little late getting up, but better late than never, right?

Last week, I didn't read as much as I would have liked, but I did manage to finish two books: Flight Behavior and Radiance of Tomorrow. I started two new books.

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
I am listening to The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. I like to listen to an audiobook on my way to and from work and while doing housework or running errands. I am only on the second or third chapter, so it is too soon for me to have an opinion. The whole opening about Dominican history and fuku was a little rough, but now that I am into the narrative I am liking it. I chose this book because it fits well with the We Need More Diverse Books campaign, which I fully support. I own it in paperback, so while I didn't buy it recently, I did buy it at some point.

The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry

I also should be finally starting The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry soon. I am trying to finish another book that I have had going for what seems like ages at this point first, but I doubt I will be able to hold off much longer.

I am still reading Prodigy by Marie Lu aloud to my son and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby to myself when I can find it. It's a small book, and I keep leaving it in random places.

I also have 2-3 books in various stages of completion, so if I finish everything else, I will go back to one of those.
