This Week in Books
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and very happy holidays! This Week in Books is a weekly round-up hosted by Lipsyy Lost and Found. In this post I look back on a book I've finished, highlight one I am currently reading, and one I will read in the near future. What are you reading these days?
THEN: I finished the second book in a series of autobiographical graphic novels called Arab of the Future II by Riad Sattouf. I am finding it to be really intereing, though the format of the graphic novel took a little getting used to. I will definitely read the third part as well.
NOW: Currently, I am reading This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger. It got a lot of attention when it was published earlier this year and though I like it, I am not as taken with it as I was with the author's previous book Ordinary Grace. I still have about a quarter left, though. Have you read it? What did you think?
NEXT: I think I might give The Education of an Idealist by Samantha Power a try next. It's long, but I've heard good things and saw her on The Daily Show a while ago where I found the author to be likable.
