If you check my last update, you can see that it’s been almost a month since I last wrote here. The reasons are many, varied, and come from very different events in my life. But life means change, and living means getting used to these changes the best you can, with the help of your beloved ones (to whom I will forever be grateful!). So bear with me, because there is no better way than to read through everything in life, both good and bad 🙂
It’s a little tradition over here to discuss Spring Break, because right before I go on holidays in March I usually feel I need a break like a need breathing. Now that things are slowly going back on track – or off, but there’s change! – I plan on spending my deserved Spring Break peacefully reading, although I was just noticed today that some paperwork needs to be taken care of.
I am currently reading Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll and I love it, but I can’t tell you more because it is the first book I am reviewing as a (semi?) professional reviewer for Los Angeles Review of Books, a place where people share my love for all things Foucault.
As usual, I have no idea what I will read next, but I have been so lucky as to have Irish crime writer Janey Casey send me two of the novels in her Maeve Kerrigan series. Talking about Ireland – a country to which I profess an irrational love – I finally bought a second-hand edition of Tana French’s In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad #1). I have heard only wonderful things about her and her works, all by people whose taste and criteria I trust, so I am very excited to get to know her. And, I also finally bought Gone, Baby Gone by Denis Lehane, because a good friend of mine has been insisting on how much I would love the novel.
You have been writing a lot, so I will check all the posts on my Feedly, even though they are more than 100. I just don’t feel comfortable hitting the ‘Mark All as Read’ buttom, because I follow many of you on Twitter, and I have seen some very interesting reviews going around. I just need a good cup of coffee and a few days to read them all.
Because I’ve been away a long time, so I would love to hear what you’re reading and what you’re doing on Spring Break. Any reading planned?
