Summer is almost over, but there are still a few weeks left and I desperately need something to keep myself busy or else I will be catatoniac when the new academic year starts! After five years busy as a bee, skipping lunch more than a few times a week and being completely happy if I could get six hours of sleep a day, I have found myself with more free time than apparently I can manage. So, I have decided to keep myself busy by setting some deadlines:
- When Sam from Tiny Library posted about the Redathon many of you are also into, I saw she was about to read A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick saying:
I’ve had this book for a loooong time. It’s a gothic story about a mail order bride and I know I will love it, I just need to actually read it.
Same happens to me! The book has been sitting on my shelf for a year now and I know I have to read it because the gothic and wintery setting will be perfect for these last summer days. So, the lovely Sam and I are doing a read-along and will post our reviews next week.
- The other projet came to my mind last night. I received a review copy of Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives edited by Sarah Weinman. It is a compilation of crime and psychological short stories by women that were forgotten but who laid the foundations for nowadays’ crime fiction. The book has 14 short stories, so I will read one every night, also inspired by all of you who have a special book assigned for your bedtime.
